Memory of Nations

It’s easy to forget. That’s why we record and re-tell testimonies we don't want to disappear. We’ve interviewed thousands of witnesses already. We’re convinced that our parents’ and grandparents’ experiences with totalitarian regimes in the 20th century can help all of us protect freedom and democracy in the present day. We document, tell stories, educate and help others. We couldn’t have done any of this without you. Thanks for your support!

In our film studios and when visiting the witnesses at home, we film their memories of key
moments from the recent past. We have founded and are managing the largest collection of
memories in Europe, publicly available online. It’s used by researchers as well as journalists,
filmmakers, teachers and students, and you can use it too. There are thousands of witness
stories here. We want their life stories to be remembered, which is why we do our best to
continue telling them in an engaging way – through radio and television programmes, films,
books, comic strips, at exhibitions, online and using mobile apps. We educate students and
pupils at the elementary, secondary and higher education levels, and assist their teachers.
Every 17 October we present the Memory of Nations Awards at the National Theatre in
Prague. In regional cities, we are opening Memory of Nations Institutes open to the public,
where people can get in touch with the past in a modern way. We continue to look for new
ways to spread the memories of our witnesses further. Dozens of organisations from 13 European and 3 non-European countries have joined the Memory of Nations network.

We trust that telling stories also transfers values, which is why we’re determined to remind
people of our experience with totalitarian regimes in the 20th and 21st centuries. We’d love
for you to be there with us. Become a supporter and help us take care of the Memory of
Nations. Thank you!

Věřím, že budete nadále rozkrývat a dokumentovat temné události předešlých režimů a že se konečně výsledky vaší práce dostanou do učebnic pro příští generace. Současný stav je víc než tristní.
