As the project manager, journalist and writer Natalia Osipova explains, this is a very personal, emotional project for the creators. The people preparing it look at the evidence of the prosecution every day.

Because this project is in defense of the victims and the Nuremberg humanist consensus.
The project "Nuremberg. The Beginning of the World" is based on first-person testimonies obtained from Russian and foreign archives. Moreover, the materials will be published not only in Russian, but also in German, French and English. They will be complemented by exhibitions, podcasts, public-talks, and performances.
