Fifth Leonidas Donskis Conference

September 20-21, 2022 
Palace of the Grand Dukes, Vilnius

The Fifth Leonidas Donskis Conference focused on the issues of collective trauma that deeply influence society and politics today. We looked at fresh trauma’s, created recently or at this very moment, on older trauma that have not yet been digested and at traumas of the past that still influence our thinking and actions.

Chronicle of Current Events

A typescript journal, the Chronicle of Current Events (Хроника Текущих Собитии) was produced every 2-4 months in Moscow by the human rights movement in the USSR. It offers a unique, uncensored and continuous account of life inside the Soviet Union from 1968 to 1982. Starting with reports from Moscow and Leningrad the periodical’s network of contacts and sources of information expanded over the following 15 years until it regularly included about human rights violations (the persecution of believers, the identity of those imprisoned for their beliefs in prisons, labour camps and psychiatric hospitals) from Ukraine, Lithuania, Armenia and other parts of the USSR.

The Andrei Sakharov Research Center contributes to the development of a pluralist and democratic society in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.
