This project aims at searching and researching places of imprisonment and extermination. This is done through collecting information about Lviv prisons, examining archive, historical, and bibliographical documents. At the same time architectural and art value of the buildings in their authentic state is being outlined.
In many cities of Western Ukraine there are still very many former Bolshevik Polish and Nazi torture chambers. Some of them are ruined, some are rebuilt, and some perform a function of present-day prisons. With time apartment complexes were built on the territory around those places. Changing functions of the former prisons or bringing them back to authenticity would help to create cultural centers and institutions to pay honor to all people tortured there.
In archives there are many folders with cases of thousands imprisoned people. The majority of documents are secret. Access to those documents in archive and their research will enable researchers to count the number of totalitarian regime victims.
Within this project there are plans to launch museums and erect monuments. In order to attract attention of the community to this problem many exhibitions of collected photo, video, and text materials will be organized.
