An exhibition of early 20th century documents discovered by EHU researchers in Lithuanian Central State Archives offers British audiences a new glimpse into the origins of the independent Belarusian Democratic Republic (BNR).
At the March 28 opening of the EHU exhibition “Unknown BNR” at University College London, members of the Belarusian diaspora and the BNR’s government-in-exile emphasized the importance of remembering the founding of a democratic Belarus and the role EHU could play in internationalizing research on Belarus.
The exhibition has already been showcased in Vilnius and at the Czech National Library in Prague. The London exhibition will be on display permanently at the Association of Belarusians in Great Britain (Belarusian House, 52 Penn Road, London, N7 9RE).
Research and analysis of the historical materials was supported by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the Lithuanian Central State Archives. The exhibition in London was sponsored by the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in the United Kingdom, and 3p logistics.
