32 years have passed since the breakdown of the Soviet Union which means post-soviet countries became “adults”, furthermore, a new generation grew up outside of the socialist era. Some of the Eastern bloc countries joined the European Union in 2004 and Eastern European and Caucasian countries show rapid development as well. Despite of the improving economy and rising living conditions many young people are exposed to the risk of radicalisation or just turn away from active political participation. Memories of the socialist era are more or less history living with us, surround us. We can easily find socialist buildings, squares, roads, and people who have experiences of the longest standing totalitarian system of the 20th century. Everyday people and objects keep memories of this age, as well as historical institutes and museums. Nevertheless, professional cultural institutions face the challenge of raising youth’s interest and involve them in preserving lessons learned.
