The Institute of National Remembrance was created to address issues which are considered essential to the legislative power in Poland, primarily to preserve the memory of: -the losses which were suffered by the Polish Nation as a result of the World War II and the post-war period; -patriotic traditions of fighting against occupants, Nazism and Communism; -citizens' efforts to fight for an independent Polish State, in defense of freedom and human dignity; and to fulfill: -the duty to prosecute crimes against peace, humanity and war crimes; -the need to compensate for damages which were suffered by the repressed and harmed people in the times when human rights were violated by the state. This is the expression of belief that no unlawful deeds of the state against its citizens can be protected by secrecy or forgotten. The IPN is responsible for gathering, assessing, disclosing and custody of the documentation created between July 22, 1944 and December 31, 1989 by Polish security agencies. The documentation would also include records regarding the Communist, Nazi and other crimes committed against Polish citizens in the period from September 1, 1939 to December 31, 1989, as well as political repressions carried out by officials of the former Polish investigative and justice organs in that time. The documentation concerning the activities of the security organs is also the subject of interest of the IPN. Another major responsibility of the Institute is to investigate Communist and Nazi crimes as well as war crimes and crimes against humanity and peace. The IPN investigates crimes against people of Polish origin, as well as Polish citizens of other origin and other citizens who were harmed in the Polish territories. Finally, the IPN is in charge of public education and has been engaged in research regarding the 1939-1989 period, as well as dissemination of the research results in the form of publications, exhibitions, seminars, etc.

The purpose of KHPG is to promote observance in Ukraine of human rights as enshrined in international agreements and the Constitution of Ukraine. KHPG was created to provide legal, psychological and other aid to people whose rights have been violated regardless of race, colour of skin, citizenship, sex, ethnic origin, language, religion, political and other views, residence. Our demands to the State are as follows: it must 1) respect human rights and not resort to excessive interference in the exercise of these rights; 2) ensure the conditions for these rights to be enjoyed; 3) protect these rights where violations have taken place. KHPG’s mission is to defend human rights and fundamental freedoms against encroachments by the State as well as to assist the latter in asserting and defending these rights. It is our task to promote the State’s fulfilment of its positive duties with regard to human rights, and point to their inaction in reacting to human rights violations or in creating conditions for the enjoyment of these rights. KHPG gave moral, legal and financial assistance to people convicted for political reasons. From 1993, work on complaints about human rights abuses became an organized part of our role. A public reception office was created to provide assistance to victims of such violations. It considers more than 2500 written complaints per year. In 2003, a Center for Protection against Torture, with its own Fund, was established. More than 200 appeals to the European Court, prepared by lawyers of the Fund, have been accepted. We won more than 60 cases. At the present time, lawyers of the Fund are working on more than 200 cases. Analysis of status of human rights in Ukraine is one of important KHPG activities. Since 2004 KHPG together with other human rights NGO published annual year report “Human Rights in Ukraine” in Ukrainian and English. KHPG priority topics are also prevention of torture and ill-treatment, improvement of access to information, right to privacy, combating discrimination, racism, xenophobia and hate crimes in Ukraine. Since 1993 KHPG has been involved in human rights education. It has founded a centre for preparing publications about human rights, and established contact with the UN Institute of Human Rights (Geneva, Switzerland). Thirty parts of the series Fact Sheets, issued by this Institute, have been translated into Ukrainian and twice published. Also the brochure ABC ŤTeaching Human rightsť, issued by this Institute, has been translated from English and distributed among teachers. In addition, 25 International agreements on human rights, indexed by the UN and conventions of the Council of Europe, have been translated into Ukrainian and prepared for distribution. This material is sent by post on request to teachers, students at institutes and schools, to members of grassroots organizations, and also distributed at seminars. KHPG members have participated and given lectures at several seminars organised by the Council of Europe. Since February 1999, we started to publish a monthly bulletin ŤHuman Rights. Civic Educationť with a specific slant for specialists working in the field of civic and human rights education. It contains method plans and scenarios lessons for teaching human rights in schools, discusses issues of civic education and civic awareness. Two manuals on human rights education, created by the Centre for Civic Education in Calabasasis, CA, USA, have been translated and published (ŤNational Standards for Civics and Governmentť and ŤWe, the People… Citizen and the Constitutionť). Three national conferences for teachers on human rights issues have been held (1999, 2000, 2001), with each participant receiving a pack with information and publications on teaching human rights. Since 1999 we have been maintaining a special section on ŤCivic Educationť on the KHPG site (see: http://khpg.org/index.php?r=1.5.2 ). Since 2000 we have held ten Schools on Human Rights for Leaders of Human Rights NGOs, in which more than 400 human rights activists took part. In 1999-2011 there were more than 50 educational events according to the programme ŤPrevention of illegal arrest, torture and ill-treatment as well as jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rightsť. KHPG members collect archive material about the history of the human rights movement, take interviews of former dissidents (252 people have been interviewed filling 708 cassettes). A database is being created of members of the dissident movement in Ukraine, and a huge photo archive has been established. The first draft of a list of Ukrainian political prisoners (1954 – 1988), with around 3000 names, has been prepared. Since 1992 KHPG has published historical documents and memories in series devoted to resistance to the totalitarian regime of the USSR. More than 60 books have been published. Based on collected materials, KHPG members permanently conduct meetings with pupils and students where they tell them about political repressions and resistance to the totalitarian regime. In 1996-1999 KHPG was a member of the international project devoted to creation of biographical dictionary ŤWho’s Who in Dissent in the Central and Eastern Europe and Former USSRť. NGOs from 22 countries took part at the project. KHPG was responsible for the Ukrainian section of the biographical reference work, with 120 brief biographical texts (approximately 5000 signs) with photographs, a description and chronicle of the dissident movement, as well as a bibliography and glossary. KHPG has extensive experience in management of projects sponsored by international institutions. In monetary terms, the KHPG budget was as follows: €209,366 + $164,907.5 + 218,150 UAH (2009), €219,681 + $ 156,862.5 + 658,564.97 UAH (2010) and €230,200+ $56,300+ 517,147 UAH. Among KHPG’s most recent major donors are the European Commission, the Open Society Institute, the National Endowment for Democracy (USA), International ŤRenaissanceť Foundation (OSI-Ukraine), Foundation ŤRemembrance, Responsibility, Futureť (Germany), and the U.S. Embassy.

The foundation was set up in order to build a bilingual (Polish and English) virtual museum "Dedicated to Poland’s citizens fighting for freedom and survival against Soviet and German invaders in eastern Poland and in forced exile during World War II." Associated organizations have been set up in Australia, Canada, the UK and USA; all contributing to the expansion of this virtual museum. The virtual museum contains a number of elements designed to shape the visitor’s experience in learning about an almost unknown chapter of World War II history. The galleries document various historical episodes related to our families’ sagas, and will be an ongoing project as we add more photos and documents from different sources. The virtual museum also features film clips of survivors telling their stories, and includes bios of those who lived this history.

goals

We plan to continue to grow the various sections of the virtual museum, so as to communicate the full story to the world. We are working with various national and international institutions to integrate their collections (lists, documents, photos). We will also continue to record interviews with survivors around the world, and we plan to create educational modules and conduct seminars.

Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people is an executive body of Qurultay, elected directly by Qurultay of the Crimean Tatar people from its delegates. Mejlis consists of 33 persons, including the Chairman of Mejlis who is also elected by the secret voting by the delegates of Qurultay. Qurultay of the Crimean Tatar people and Mejlis, elected by its delegates, top the system of the national self-governance that also includes the local bodies of the national self-governance, consisting of 22 regional and more than 250 town, settlement and village mejlises, elected directly by Crimean Tatars locally on the basis of the general, equal and direct electoral rights by the secret voting. The activity of such unique system of the national self-governance, recreated by Crimean Tatars in the beginning of the process of massive return to their Homeland and in the period of the fundamental changes, related to the collapse of the USSR, and appearance of the new independent states, allows the Crimean Tatar people to affect considerably the course of the public and political processes in Crimea. At this, it should be specially noted that in conditions of the lack of the law in Ukraine, aimed at the restoration of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, as well as the extremely inadequate representation of Crimean Tatars in the bodies of the state power and executive power, Qurultay of the Crimean Tatar people and Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, being represented by the bodies of the indigenous peoples of Crimea, accumulate, represent and defend its interests and rights in its interrelations with the state. The modern structure of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people consists of its Chairman, the Presidium, First Deputy and deputies Chairman, four divisions (political-legal, on relations with public and international organizations and Mass Media, on the work with the local bodies of the local self-governance, social-economical and humanitarian policy), the Department of Foreign Relations, the Protocol Service, the Legal Department, the Secretariat and Public Reception. Mejlis also creates commissions and working groups to solve some particular tasks. Mejlis’ meetings (regular or special) or Presidium of Mejlis in the periods between Mejlis’ meetings adopt at their meetings the political and management decisions that then are implemented both by the local bodies of the national self-governance and the members of the state bodies of the local self-governance. It should be noted that more than 1000 members, nominated by Mejlis and representing the interests of Crimean Tatars were elected on the last elections of the members of the local bodies of the representative authority of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, held in October 2010. At this, the parliamentary group “Qurultay-Rukh” was formed in the Verkhovna Rada of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, numbering 5 members of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea. Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, following the traditions of the national movement of Crimean Tatars, remains a staunch supporter of the democratic development of the society, based on the principles of non-violence, respect for human rights and rights of peoples for free development. Since 1991 Mejlis is the member of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO), and since 1994 – the member of the Federal Union of European Nationalities (FUEN). Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, enjoying the broad support of the Crimean Tatar people, supports consistently the establishment of the democratic principles, human rights and peoples’ rights in the Ukrainian society that is one of the foundations for the restoration of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, returning to its Homeland – Crimea after the decades of exile. Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people along with the national-democratic forces of Ukraine supports actively the course of the Ukrainian society to European integration. Since the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly adopted on July 3, 2009 in Vilnius its Resolution on “Divided Europe Reunited: promoting human rights and civil liberties in the OSCE region in the 21st century”, starting from August 2009 Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people annually holds the events in Simferopol, dedicated to the European Day Of Remembrance For Victims Of Stalinism And Nazism, to preserve the memory of the victims of mass deportations and exterminations. The Chairman of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people is Mustafa Jemilev – the Soviet human rights advocate, one of the founders and members of the Initiative group for the protection of human rights in the USSR (1969). Political prisoner in the Soviet period: 1966 – 1967, 1969 – 1972, 1974 – 1975, 1975 – 1976, 1979 – 1982, 1983 – 1986, presently the MP of Ukraine of the 3rd (1998 – 2002), 4th (2002 – 2006), 5th (2006 – 2007) and 6th (2007 – present) convocations.

Memoria Cultural Foundation was created in 1991 as an NGO meant to promote Human Rights and civic values and to transmit the memory of political persecutions perpetrated by communist regime in Romania. In the last 24 years, Memoria Cultural Foundation published the Memoria magazine and more than 20 books on politics and memory, on communism and political persecutions and a few memoirs and journals of former political detainees and deportees. Memoria magazine’s collaborators are among the most important intellectuals and artists of today Romania: Serban Papacostea, Ana Blandiana, Andrei Pipiddi, Romulus Rusan, Camilian Demetrescu, etc. Memoria Cultural Foundation is also involved in organizing conferences (such as, „Colocviile de la Beclean”, Simpozionul Internaţional „Experimentul Piteşti-reeducarea prin tortură”) and debates on the topics of Human Rights, political persecutions, deportation, civic responses to present-day societal problems, etc. In 2010, Memoria Cultural Foundation together with Civic Academy Foundation gained a grant from the European Commission, through its Programme, “Europe for citizens”, Action 4, “Active European Memory”, with a project entitled “Memory of deportation in Romania”. Meant to make visible the topic of deportation in Romania during communism, the project was a big success. The exhibition, “Black Whitsuntide. Baragan deportation” was displayed in Bucharest, Braila, Sighet, and at the European Parliament.
