    Director of the State Archives of Brest Region Anna Karapuzova took part in the events celebrating the 80th anniversary of the reunification of Western Belarus and the Belarusian SSR.

    On 17 September 2019 the Brest Regional Museum held an unveiling of the exhibition “Twelve artifacts” dedicated to 1000 Years of the City of Brest. The exhibition displays the Banner of the Brest Underground Committee of the Communist Party of Western Belarus of the 1920s-1930s. This Banner was transferred to the Museum from the Brest Archives in 1956 by the directive by the Archives Administration of the Internal Ministry of the Belarusian SSR, along with other similar materials.

    Such banners were kept as material evidence in the archives of the law enforcement agencies of Poland in 1921-1939, who fixed in their reports and investigative cases all actions by members of the underground Communist Party of Western Belarus, including the facts of posting up such banners in various towns and villages.

    On 20 September 2019 Anna Karapuzova took part in the scholarly conference “The Martynov Readings” organized by the Kobrin Regional Executive Committee and the Suvorov Military-Historical Museum in Kobrin. The director of Brest Archives delivered a report on the topic “The history of Kobrin Region in the documents of the State Archives of Brest Region”.
