What do organizers say:
”The project addresses the youth, especially these who are taught about communism in school. The formal history lessons cannot provide a comprehensible view of daily life in communism. Moreover, usually, this subject is a predilect one for elders and not for youth. Younger people never lived in those circumstances and know almost nothing about them. Sometimes they learn about it from elders talks, but these are just subjective glimpses of the whole picture.
The project team aimed to create an atmosphere closer to that belonging of the communist epoch through the display of original documents and items.”
