Exhibition of European Remembrance and Conscience “Totalitarianism in Europe: Fascism- Nationalism- Communism”
November 22 - 24, 2013
Exhibition of European Remembrance and Conscience “Totalitarianism in Europe: Fascism- Nationalism- Communism” is prepared by the Platform of European Remembrance and Conscience in cooperation with scientific centers of Central and Eastern European countries.
XX century became an area of totalitarian experiments in Central and Eastern Europe. This time caused various stereotypes in the minds of people. Most of us are familiar with the history taught at school and we often associate the notion “totalitarianism” with the time between the wars and the time of Hitler from one side and Stalin’s regime in the USSR from the other side. The exhibition is aimed at showing that totalitarianism is not only about USSR and Germany, and it has to do with other countries and periods in the history not just the time between the wars. So many other countries faced it, such as Poland, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Slovakia, etc. The attendees of this special event will be able to learn a lot of interesting facts from the history of various countries. International Forum “My nation exists!” will be held as part of the event and will include the following:
- International Scientific Symposium “Famine-Genocide 1932-1933 in Ukraine: History and Remembrance”
- World premiere of the famous American composer Virko Baley “Red Earth. Hunger” that will take place in the National Opera of Ukraine.
The organizer of the Exhibition is Public Committee on Honoring the Memory of Victims of the Famine-Genocide ’32-33 in Ukraine.
