Exhibition “Roads to 1989. East-Central Europe 1939-1989”
The exhibition “Roads to 1989. East-Central Europe 1939-1989” is an international initiative to commemorate the 25 year jubilee since the fall of the Berlin Wall, organized by the European Network for Remembrance and Solidarity. The exhibition tours around the capitals and major cities of East-European countries. The initiative combines various topics on the essence of the totalitarian regime in the second half of the 20th century, focusing on some of the main reasons for the system’s collapse. The exhibition focuses on the various ways in which different types of freedom were curtailed in the former communist bloc and on the attempts made to regain them. So far the display has been presented in Berlin, Brussels, Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava, Bucharest, Krakow and Prague.
The environmental protests in Ruse, as well as the Goryani movement in the 1950s, are Bulgaria’s contribution to the topic. The ecological protests are presented with photographs from the collection.
