#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.

Keywords: Ion Ungureanu, director, minister, drama, Morning Star.

Abstract: On September 8th, 2015, the National Museum of History of Moldova hosted an exceptional cultural event dedicated to the celebration of the 80th anniversary of prominent cultural figure - Ion Ungureanu, actor and director, ex-Minister of Culture of the Republic of Moldova, Artist of the People, Laureate of the National Award, holder of the Order of the Republic.

The event began with the opening of the exhibition "Ion Ungureanu, a destiny lightened by the Morning Star" bringing together more than 230 photos, documents, books, theater programs and posters, prizes, awards and other relics that reflect important aspects of the life and work of one of the most prominent figures of the national culture.

The artistic activity of actor and director Ion Ungureanu includes 13 roles in theatre plays, 21 roles in radio shows and 27 roles in "Moldova-film" and "Mosfilm" productions. He staged 26 plays in theatre and 8 plays in television.

Theseus, Malvolio, Dr. Dorn, von Walter; "Birds of our Youth", "Holy of Holies" and "White Church" by I. Druță, "Minodora" by A. Strâmbeanu, "Nameless Star" by M. Sebastian, "Radu Stefan, the First and the Last" by A. Bu-
suioc - these are just some of the roles and performances that glorified this wonderful actor and director.

In 1970s famous Russian actor Mikhail Ulyanov considered Ion Ungureanu in line with such the greatest directors of the Soviet theater as Georgy Tovstonogov, Iury Liubimov, Anatoly Efros and Oleg Efremov.

The exhibition is a first attempt to valorise through exhibition the cultural and political work of the actor, director and public person Ion Ungureanu. The phenomenon of Ungureanu is yet to be studied, and the lesson of dignity and verticality given by this outstanding personality is yet to be assumed by contemporaries and generations to come.
