Aleksandre Griboedov St. #30

Abbe Schulman - the commandant of N2 correctional house (Metekhi prison) lived in this house in the beginning of 1920s. He personally carried out death penalties for which reason he was given a nickname “commandant of death”. On the words of his contemporaries, Schulman’s brutality and ruthlessness terrified not only prisoners and ordinary citizens, but also the functionaries who cast terror themselves. His name became a symbol of red terror in Transcaucasia. On archive data, in 1925 he had already been enlisted as an ex-official of Extraordinary Committee and was said to have been paid high pension. He died presumably in 1944, in the same house. He is buried in Tbilisi.
