“Coffee shop Poka in Literary Museum” invites to restore an open trial of Ukrainian intelligentsia (the case of the Union for the Liberation of Ukraine), which took place in Kharkiv from March 9 to April 19, 1930 in the premises of the Opera House, informs Status Quo (RU).
“Who should be on the dock that the whole country talks about them? What is a trial – a thorough objective investigation of the circumstances of the crime or theatrical performance? What kind of “the most humane Soviet court” it was and what has changed since then?” – the main questions asked by the organizers of the event.
