The camp site was prepared in October 1941 by Soviet prisoners of war from the Salaspils branch camp Stalag 350/Z of the Riga of base camp 350 and by deported Czech Jews as well as a few German Jews from KZ Jungfernhof. About 12,000 prisoners went through the camp during its existence. In addition to the German Jews who perished during the construction phase about 2,000 to 3,000 people died here due to illness, heavy labor, inhuman treatment, epidemy, etc. Starting in 1949 legal proceedings were brought against some of the persons responsible for the Nazi crimes in Latvia, including the Riga Ghetto, and the Jungfernhof and Salaspils concentration camps.

1857 10k brown & blue, unused horizontal pair, with original gum, hinge remnant, paper thickness 0.11 mm, colorless "1" watermark shifted to left, margins all around, light bend between stamps, full embossing and vivid colors, very fine. An unused Russia Number One single is a world-class rarity, of which only a few have been recorded. Outside of the Popov Museum in St. Petersburg, this is the only genuine unused pair of the first stamp of Russia in private hands. While "unused" examples have surfaced over the years, they have generally been determined to have been cleaned, have pen cancels removed, etc. It is a privilege to offer this remarkable unused pair of Russia Number One, with full original gum and to our knowledge, never before shown or offered for sale, accompanied by a 2022 Buchsbayew certificate. A wonderful treasure of Imperial Russian Philately (Scott Catalogue "Genuine unused examples of No.1 are exceedingly scarce. Most of those offered are used with pen cancellation removed. The unused value is for an example without gum. The very few known stamps with original gum sell for much more (catalogue value $125,000 as two singles without gum)
