The mission of the Museum of the Victims of Communism is to learn about recent history. To think about it and identify the causes that led to the inhumane treatment of victims. The mission of the Museum is also to look for the living victims of the communist regime or their children and families and to get to know the difficult lives of their ancestors. The map of the victims of communism in Slovakia should also be used for this purpose, on which the individual municipalities are marked with symbols that show what victims their inhabitants brought. Each municipality has a specific list of people according to the type of persecution. These topics were kept silent during communism and are still silent for unknown reasons. The role of the Museum is to open these topics and talk about them at home, at school and in society.
