The idea of creating such a museum in Slovakia is supported by a civil initiative uniting the representatives of the Forum of Christian Institutions, the Confederation of Political Prisoners, and the Nation's Memory Institute together with foreign experts from the Berlin-Hohenschoenhausen Memorial and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

The initiative was launched on Thursday, November 25 and additional information on it is available at http://www.peticia.sk/muzeumzlocinovkomunizmu.
