#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.

Two monetary treasures from the 16th and the 17th centuries from the collections of the NMAHM

Tyragetia, serie nouă, vol. III [XVIII], nr. 2, Istorie. Muzeologie

In the collections of the NMAHM are two medieval treasures similar as regarding their structure. These are the treasures from villages Mârzești and Morozeni, both discovered in the year 1962 in Orhei district during farming works.

The treasures contain each 17 polish coins made of white metal and are framed into the same chronological limits – the years 1501-1506 and the years 1615, 1616. The coins are issued during the reign of Alexandru the 1st (1492/1501- 1506), Sigismund the 3rd the Old (1506-1548), Sigismund the 2nd August (1545/1548-1572) and Sigismund the 3rd Vaza (1587-1632). In both treasures predominate the Lithuanian ½ grosh: 16 ½ grosh from the period of the three consecutive reigns and a dreipolker from Sigismund the 3rd in the treasure from Mârzești and 13 ½ grosh from the same three reigns, 3 1 ½ grosh and a triple grosh from Sigismund the 3rd in the treasure from Morozeni.

We consider useful for researchers the introduction into the scientific circuit of the two coin deposits with the detailed description of the objects.
