Wikipedia: The Solovki prison camp (later Solovki prison), was set up in 1923 on the Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea as an inaccessible place of detention for socialist opponents of Soviet Russia’s new Bolshevik regime. At first the Anarchists, Mensheviks and Socialist Revolutionaries enjoyed a special status there and were not made to work. Gradually prisoners from the old regime (priests, gentry, and White Army officers) joined them and the guards and the ordinary criminals worked together to keep the “politicals” in order.
To begin with the “mother of the GULAG” as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn called Solovki, was openly termed a concentration camp. Only in the late 1920s was the euphemism corrective labour camp applied throughout the system, now organised as the GULag or main directorate for corrective-labour camps. The “Solovki Special Purpose Camp” served as a testing ground where security measures were developed and tried out, as were innovations in “living conditions”, work production norms, and other forms of repression.
