«International Memorial» is one of the oldest and largest research centres of the history of political repressions in Russia. Throughout its long 30-year history, Memorial created and carried out a large variety of research projects – e.g. a database of the victims of the Great Terror.
One such project – «The Topography of Terror. Moscow» tries to examine, how the city surroundings tell the story of those repressions. The main goal of this project is trying to answer the question of just how one can comprehend the history of human rights abuse in the USSR. In this sense the city of Moscow, being the central place of decision making in the Soviet government, is crucial in understanding the scale of repressions.
