MFF respectfully invites you to participate in an extraordinary exhibition which broke through the blockade of silence about the crimes of Russia in the Caucasus.
When peace eventually comes to Chechnya, it is essential, at least in this century, to return to this issue again and again, much like we return to the past GULAG and the Holocaust! Because the degree of those numerous, ultimately atrocious crimes against humanity is not only determined by the number of victims. It is determined by the degree of moral decline of the part of humanity that is responsible for these crimes, and by the degree of indifference of another part, that is also responsible, though indirectly, by failure to even notice these crimes let alone the attempts to stop them…
The purpose of this enormous exhibition is to influence people’s minds, to make them think profoundly; to make government officials aware that they are regularly negotiating with criminals. It is not about stirring up hatred against nations, but about awareness and clear understanding of what is happening.
Anna Politkovskaya had the courage to openly point out the truth about Russian authorithy, and as a result, was gunned down in her apartment block.
She wrote about bombings, torture camps, violence, abductions of Chechen civilians, and corruption in Moscow’s second campaign in Chechnya. Shortly before her assasination, she was working on the investigation of torture taking place in Ramzan Kadyrov’s prisons in the Russian occupied Chechnya. Among the collected materials there were reports of witness and victims of torture, as well as photographs. Scores of these photographs will be presented in our exhibition.
Simply come and see the photographs from Russia.
Don’t let it happen anywhere else.
Don’t let anybody deceive you anymore.
