On October 29th, the eve of Russia’s Day of Remembrance of Victims of Political Repression, we will gather from 10 in the morning until 10 at night to read aloud the names of Soviet citizens who were shot in Moscow as part of Stalin’s Great Terror. From 1937 to 1938, more than 30,000 people were murdered in Moscow alone. We would like to invite all who wish to take part in the reading of these names to come to Lubyanka Square at any time on October 29th to participate in Memorial’s annual ceremony. You will find us gathered around the Solovetsky Stone, a remnant of the Solovki prison camp meant to commemorate victims of the Soviet Gulag. These victims will be remembered on Lubyanka Square on this day.
October 29th. From 10 am to 10 pm.
2021 UPD: Due to COVID-19 quarantine restrictions this year’s ceremony will be held online.
