#Exhibit of the Month

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.

Commercial navigation on the Dniester River (1812-1853)

Tyragetia, serie nouă, vol. II [XVII], nr. 2, Istorie. Muzeologie

The article reveals one of the aspects of our researches regarding the external commerce of Bessarabia between 1812 and 1853. As a result of our endeavors of identification of transportation means of bessarabian commodities to Odessa, the most important seaport of the period, we found it necessary to accentuate our attention on commercial navigation on the Dniester River.

Analyzing archival documents and monographic literature we came to the conclusion that this problem shall be studied many-sided. To make the final conclusion, though, we must consider the aspects in totality. As a result we divided our paper in four parts: Means and conditions of Dniester navigation, Commercial transports on the course of Dniester, Commercial transports on the Dniester estuary, The role of Bessarabia in the commercial navigation of Dniester. Based on our researches, we consider that navigable potential of the Dniester River was utilized in the named period only partially. Most probably this was due to unconcern and mercenary of the Russian government, which ignored any initiatives, because their implementation didn’t promised quick dividends. Thus a vicious circle was formed. On the one hand the navigation on the Dniester River didn’t develop because of unsatisfactory hydrographical conditions, on the other hand the government refused to invest money for their amelioration as the Dniester navigation was too poor compared to other rivers of the Russian Empire.
