Leaflets about totalitarianism
Nations Memory Institute in cooperation with European Network Remembrance and Solidarity prepared mutual project to support educational activities for students of primary and secondary schools called Leaflets about totalitarianism. Result of the project are leaflets (illustrated by authentic photos) focused on topics and historical events related with the period of unfreedom in Slovak history (1939 – 1989), aiming to present consequences of the totalitarian regimes for young generation.
