The first full “Book of remembrance” of victims of political repression will be created in Moscow. It will include biographies and other documents of the repressed in the capital and its suburbs, reported on the website of the project “Open list” in Facebook.
“Although these martyrologies with brief biographies of the victims of repression were published across the country since 1990-ies, in the capital still did not have a single “Book of memory”. Issuing a separate shot lists for the places of burial”, — the authors of the project. While a significant mass of those who had been sentenced to the camp terms are not considered in any books.
In the “Book of remembrance” will include short biographies, copies of documents and photos of the repressed in the Metropolitan area from the 1920s to 1941. The authors of the project say that the entire work may take more than one year.
“The work will be huge — just GARF (State archive of the Russian Federation — ed.) about 100 thousand archival investigation files of those repressed,” added the authors.
