As International Memorial Society reports, the exhibition has been prepared by the Czech non-profit organizations, People in Need that has worked in the North Caucasus for many years.
The exhibition presents, in an artistic form, the stories of 12 individuals. These are stories of abductions, murders, torture, and fabricated criminal cases. One of the stories is about the abduction and murder of the human rights defender Natasha Estemirova.
The crimes that are the themes of the exhibition remain unsolved, and no one has yet been punished for them – just as the case with thousands of other similar crimes .
The exhibition will be opened on 15 July 2015 at 17:00 at the conference room of the International Memorial Society – House 5/10, Karetny Ryad, Moscow.
At the opening ceremony there will be a round table in which participants will include: Svetlana Gannushkina, member of the board of the Memorial Human Rights Centre, chair of the Civic Assistance Committee and member of the Expert Council of the federal Human Rights Ombudsman; Igor Kalyapin, chair of Committee Against Torture, member of the Presidential Human Rights Council; Tatyana Lokshina, programme director at Human Rights Watch and a member of the Expert Council of the federal Human Rights Ombudsman; Oleg Orlov, board member of the Memorial Human Rights Centre and a member of the Ombudsman’s Expert Council; Vadim Prokhorov, lawyer acting for the family of Boris Nemtsov; and Aleksandr Cherkasov, chair of the board of Memorial Human Rights Centre and a member of the Ombudsman’s Expert Council.
Among the questions the round table will discuss, are:
Why are those guilty of crimes not brought to justice? What are the consequences of impunity? What could be its consequences for Russia?
