The new museum is part of the Military Medical Museum.
The Nazism Victims Memorial Museum has been inaugurated in St. Petersburg. It became part of the Military Medical Museum, which has documents about concentration camps in its stock. These include records and photos of doctors who examined concentration camp survivors and the bodies of those who died there, as well as materials of the Nuremberg trials.
Some exhibits were donated by former prisoners, such as the dress of a prisoner, and pictures, some of which were made in secret.
According to Anatoly Budko, director of the Military Medical Museum, the museum has a stock of documents that bear evidence of the Nazi atrocities, the largest in Russia and one of the largest in Europe. These include witnesses’ statements during the Nuremberg trials, and the facts discovered by the Extraordinary Commission.
The main mission of the new museum is to oppose history falsification. The exposition will be constantly expanded. At present, only part of the archive and stock is available for visitors.
