    On January 25, Witold Pilecki Center for Totalitarian Studies launched one of the biggest collections of civilian testimonies from Nazi-occupied Europe.

    The Chronicles of Terror platform (http://www.chroniclesofterror.pl/dlibra) features witness depositions of Polish citizens who testified before the Main Commission for the Investigation of German Crimes in Poland after World War II. They reflect the experience of thousands of Polish victims of Nazi terror, and of their families, and loved ones.

     

    Until recently, these materials were scattered and locked away in archives. Today, for the first time, they can reach a wider audience in Poland and all over the world. Chronicles of Terror promote knowledge about the German occupation of Poland and preserve the memory of victims of totalitarianism.
