10:36 - SLOVAKIA: MUSEUM OF THE CRIMES OF COMMUNISM TO BE ESTABLISHED IN BRATISLAVA
(Sir Europe - Bratislava) - A project of a Museum of the crimes of communism in Slovakia starts to assume concrete contours. Members of the civil association Quiet heroes that tries to preserve the memory of those who were active in the fight against totalitarianism in 1948-1989, met with the rector of St. Elizabeth University of Health and Social Sciences in Bratislava to discuss possibilities to establish the new museum at its premises. The building of the first medical school where blessed Zdenka Schelingova studied as well offers a suitable space for this purpose, affirmed Prof. Vladimir Krcmery. According to Frantisek Neupauer, president of the Quiet heroes association, a complete concept of the project will be introduced on 18 June, preceded by days of hard work full of negotiations and requests for the support of the plan addressed to state authorities, municipality and entrepreneurs. Our goals transform into reality. Thanks to the support of the rector we hope to succeed in the realization of our intentions, added Frantisek Neupauer, expressing joy over the fact that Slovakia will join the range of post-communist countries that already have a museum commemorating the crimes of the totalitarian regime.
