Google Features OSA Exhibit on Fall of the Iron Curtain

http://nol.hu/kultura/reszkessetek-bogarak-1500291 - Hungarian news portal nol.hu reports: The Google Cultural Institute organized nine virtual exhibitions on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the regime change, presenting the journey of the communist dictatorships from the beginning to the end. Hungary prepared one exhibition, based on the collection and expertise of the OSA Archives (Open Society Archives of Central European University).

Google has featured Open Society Archives' exhibit entitled “1956-301-1989, Prehistory to the 1989 Fall of Communism of Hungary” on its Cultural Institute website from Nov. 13, as part of a series of exhibits commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Iron Curtain. The exhibits were prepared by Czech, Slovak, Polish and Hungarian (OSA) institutions. The OSA exhibit was featured on Google's home search page on Nov. 19. The OSA exhibit, curated by Gwen Jones, is a compilation of photos, documents and video footage tracing the progression from Hungary's 1956 revolution to the fall of communism in 1989 with information about the historic events.  

The goal of Google's Cultural Institute is to make world cultural treasures, archives, cultural heritage and other cultural materials available on the Internet, democratizing access to the events of the past and preserving these valuable items for future generation.
