Gulag Museum - gulagmuseum.org
Archives Museum.
Details

In modern Russia there is no national Gulag Museum. It is absent not only as a material object - it is not in Russian culture as a necessary link between knowledge and understanding, fact and event, experience and memory.
The memory of the communist terror did not become an integral and integral part of the national memory, it is still fragmentary memories of local events that are not connected by a common conceptual essence.
This is the state of memory demonstrated by existing museum collections and exhibition projects.

Today, the Gulag Museum is a collection of initiatives by enthusiasts and authors' groups, scattered geographically and disaggregated thematically and methodologically.
in different towns and cities of the former USSR, there are a variety of government, agency, community, school, and other museums that are created in their permanent collections of the sections devoted to specific aspects of the topic, specifically collect documentary and material evidence of the history of repression, As well as organize temporary or periodic exhibitions.

As a rule, these are autonomous and unrelated initiatives taken by museum collectives.
In most cases, these exposures are known only to a limited number of visitors and are not claimed outside the geographically limited community.
Nevertheless, the need to comprehend the experience of the Gulag and terror in the generalized museum view continues to be felt as an urgent contemporary problem.
Today it is important to understand: all the components of the future museum already exist in reality - these are autonomous initiatives.
Complementing, and sometimes contradicting each other, they accumulate experience, which should form the basis of the future Museum.
The main question remains - how to add these components to a single semantic whole?
How to integrate fragmented knowledge and local understanding into a single historical panorama?

The St. Petersburg Memorial Scientific Information Center has been implementing the idea of ​​creating the Virtual Gulag Museum for the fifth year.
We view this project as a collection of various museum and exhibition initiatives united in a single virtual space for comparing and finding ways of integration, while at the same time ensuring that the regional and author's specifics are not lost, but enter into a single whole as part of it.
The ultimate goal of the project is the creation of the Virtual Museum, which represents both the general picture of the history of terror and the current state of memory about it, in its material embodiment.

The "memorial" memory of terror is also an integral part of this picture, and In our collection, it is represented by two separate components: "Gulag Traces" - signs of the past in the landscape and anthropogenic environment surrounding us, and "Necropolis of Terror" - hundreds of preserved, semi-preserved or almost extinct places of burial of victims of terror.
The next stage of our project will be the construction of a virtual museum based on the collected collection - with a multimedia presentation of the exhibits, with detailed museum documentation, with a reference device including thematic and other headings, indexes, virtual card files, with thematic expositions, temporary and permanent exhibitions, with the developed System of virtual excursions.

The archives of libraries in the world.
Details

The University in Grenoble, in collaboration with the local library, posted about 500 pages of Stendhal's manuscripts on Internet, including his travel notes, letters and essays, writes The Guardian. According to one of the editors of the site Cecile Meynard, the site With manuscripts is of interest not only for specialists, but also for ordinary readers. In addition to the manuscripts themselves, the site also contains their transcripts: Stendhal's handwriting is very illegible. As the publication notes, the library of Grenoble has a large number of manuscripts and drafts of Stendhal, and in due course on the site should appear the digitized autographs of his novels, including "Life of Henri Brylar 'and the unfinished book' Lucien Leven". At the same time, the manuscripts of 'Red and Black' and 'Parma Cloister' - the two most famous novels of the writer - will not be published on the site, since they were destroyed.

That is, it opens a little-known page of the Gulag.

Details

The largest bookselling and second-hand Internet fair.

A store where you can not only buy, but also sell books, magazines or newspapers.

Remember that this is not a store, but a platform where you buy from independent sellers (as in the market) that are not related to the site administration.

How it works

  1. find a book, magazine, newspaper,
  2. make an order
  3. familiar with the working conditions of the seller from whom you are making a purchase,
  4. By sending a purchase order, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail, which contains a link to the page with a description of the order,
  5. Wait for the seller to answer, he will contact you directly, after which you can ask him questions. Without an order to contact the seller is impossible.
If you have registered, the information about you will be automatically sent to the seller.If you have not registered yet, you can try to order and without registration. But in this case, it should be remembered that not all sellers accept orders from anonymous buyers, in addition, some system capabilities will not be available.

If possible, use the "Ask" button for more information from the seller, for example, about the status of the item being sold or the conditions of sale.

If the book is not on the site

If you have not found the book you are interested in or it is not on sale now, you can leave a request for it. To do this, you need to register and log in. Then select "Books" in the menu on the right and "I want to buy" in the menu on the left. Purchase requests are saved for as long as you wish, provided that you visit the site at least once a month and respond to incoming offers.

There is also related information. For example, the contest takes place in Kiev - there is information about Kiev. Especially will be in demand for those who plan to attend the competition.

And of course, information on the participants, and after voting - the results for the semi-finals and finals.

In short, the necessary information, and most importantly - videos with songs.

Panoramic video on the First TV channel.
The videos themselves are stored on YouTube, the channel did not do its own technology.
Unfortunately, while it's not possible to get closer, you can only twist.

Personally, I do not see any special prospects for this type of video. I prefer that the operator twist, select a camera, camera angle. And I'll relax and enjoy myself enjoying the fruit of the work that I do not know how to do.
Nevertheless, these videos are curious to see, you can see how this happens, what the studio looks like, what remains behind the scenes.
