E-exhibition "Communism and Terror"

The online exhibition "Communism and Terror" (2022) talks about the essence of communist ideology and the tragic consequences of its implementation in Europe. 

Communism was one of the most influential ideologies of the 20th century, which blinded millions of people throughout the world who had no direct experience of its implementation. At the same time, it meant suffering for hundreds of millions of people who had to live under regimes that were propped up by communist doctrine.
