New CD: Leo Tolstoy and the Doukhobors

We are preparing a CD of our bilingual 2010 exhibition Leo Tolstoy and the Doukhobors: Conscientious Objection and we are preparing a CD of the English version of the same exhibition. The CDs should be ready by the end of this month (June 2011).


In addition, we are preparing a CD of the English version of the 2008 exhibition Leo Nikolajevic Tolstoy: "I Cannot Be Silent!" — Reflections against Violence and War (2008). (Leo Nikolajevic Tolstoi: 'Ich kann nicht schweigen!') There has been a German language CD of the 2008 exhibition in print since 2008. In it you will find original voice of Leo Tolstoy in digitally cleansed audio files with proper transcripts (English, French and German languages) for the first time.
Our bilingual exhibition was very well received, and I plan to create an English version only for education so that the exhibition can be shown on different places outside Central Europe.
Our 2 Tolstoy exhibits:

On 2010 November 20, 2010, we commemorated the centennial anniversary of Tolstoy's at the Peace Gallery, Berlin Anti-War Museum, with the screening of two documentary films on Tolstoy.
