In 2024, it will be three decades since the passing away of Eufrosinia Kersnovski, the woman deported from Soroca, on the night of June 12-13, 1941 and subsequently sentenced by the Party-State to 20 years in prison for escaping from the GULAG. Succeeding in surviving the correctional work camps, Eufrosinia Kersnovski will assume the status of an eyewitness of the atrocities of the totalitarian-communist regime in the years to come, leaving to the next generations 12 notebooks of memories about the hell she went through, accompanied by about 700 color illustrations.

Published under the title "The price of a human being", under the coordination of the Academician Valeriu Pasat, the testimonies of Eufrosinia Kersnovski reveal the price of human life in the context of political repressions, capturing with heartbreaking honesty her experiences in the forced labor camps and her determination to survive and to tell the truth about the endured sufferings. In addition to the recounting of the events, the author of the narratives reflects deeply on human nature and on how the totalitarian regime degraded moral values and human dignity. The color illustrations inserted into the volume represent an invaluable historical value, providing authentic details of life in the GULAG and the impact of political repression on individuals and communities. The book "The price of a human being" is more than just a testimony of suffering; the publication is a powerful condemnation of totalitarianism and a celebration of the human spirit, bringing to the fore the voice of a woman who managed to transform personal trauma into a universal call for justice and truth.

This work documents a dark chapter of history and serves as a reminder of the power of human resilience and solidarity in trying times. The book urges museum visitors to reflect on the value of human life and the imperative to protect human freedom and dignity.

"Czech Castles in the Heart of Moldova"

May 15 – June 16 2024

On May 15, at 16:30, in the upstairs hall of the National Museum of History of Moldova, the exhibition "Czech Castles in the Heart of Moldova" will be inaugurated, organized in partnership with the National Museum of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Chisinau.

This exhibition presents a selection of 11 of the most interesting castles and chateaux of Bohemia and Moravia, two of the historic areas that make up the Czech state. The criterion for the selection of the localities has been their historical significance as well as their architectural, artistic, and historical value. A prominent position is occupied by sites of European importance, including not only those already on UNESCO's list (Prague, Český Krumlov, Kroměříž, Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape) but also several other potential candidates (e.g. Karlštejn, Křivoklát, Jindřichův Hradec). This selection also includes impressive and romantic ruins (e.g. Bezděz), castles turned into imposing chateau-like residences (e.g. Hluboká nad Vltavou) and modern palaces surrounded by splendid parks (e.g. Jemniště, Lednice). The exhibition thus opens up the space to create a mosaic that informs us about selected cultural treasures and in part also about works of art and furnishings. We believe that the exhibition will provide not only an aesthetic experience and information but also motivation for a closer investigation into castles and chateaux, as well as an invitation to visit the Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic abounds in cultural treasures, among which castles and chateaux as historical residences of the social elite, of rulers, of the aristocracy, and of religious institutions attract special attention. Castles, fortified residences of the Middle Ages, were built from the twelfth to the early sixteenth century. In the modern era (from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century) they were replaced by comfortable and often sumptuously furnished chateaux. The fact that the Czech Republic ranks among the countries with the highest density of these remarkable buildings per square kilometer and that they are preserved in such an unusually authentic form gives us every right to call it a "country of castles and chateaux." Most accessible sites are managed by the National Heritage Institute or by various museums, towns, municipalities, and private persons, including descendants of the historic Czech noble families.

The exhibition "Czech castles in the heart of Moldova" can be visited between May 15 - June 16, 2024, in the upstairs hall of the National Museum of History of Moldova, Chisinau, 31 August 1989 street, 121A.
