“Right from the start, we said we would not be doing a museum, as we focus not on items but on the intellectual and artistic heritage of the times. Still, we decided to set up a small exhibition. People actively reacted to the news of the Stalin Center opening, brought many interesting newspapers, books. Not setting them up for everyone to view would not be right,” Georgy Kamnev, deputy of the Penza region Legislative Aseembly, first secretary of the regional CPRF committee, told PenzaNews.
According to him, visitors of the exhibition will be able to see “the matter of living for people of that times, the newspapers and books they were reading.”
“Here it is, the real life. It was mostly very eventful and inspiring. When a new factory for several thousand workers opens in the country every 7 hours during the second five-year period of the Soviet Union, how can that not be inspiring?” he noted.
