The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Museum of the History of St. Petersburg, Russia. The multimedia exhibition will present a documentary narrative of the Siege of Leningrad drawing on the rich collections of the partnering museum. The use of multimedia formats will allow visitors to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the war era and learn about its little-known stories.
