This exhibition includes an original diary and wooden sandals, as well as other objects once belonging to Mahatma Gandhi. We also showcase the typewriter used to draft "Charta 77", and the hectograph from the illegal periodical "Umweltblätter", in what is the world’s first exhibition of international non-violent protest.
We present examples from various countries across the years, including India, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and to show how justice can be achieved without fighting and bloodshed, using non-violent demonstrations and humour.
We also have a section dedicated to the situation for today’s freedom and human rights activists throughout the world, many of whom face intimidation and persecution. This is a section of the museum that will be constantly updated throughout the years to come, so we are therefore keen to hear your views about material that could be included. Current focuses of this section include the Mikhail Khodorkovsky case, Anna Politkovskaya, and Sergei Magnitsky.
