VOC Museum Temporary Gallery Opening and Reception: “Cuban Communist Prison” 

The Victims of Communism Museum opened its temporary gallery, “Cuban Communist Prison,” a visual arts exhibition on Cuban political prisoners. The exhibit reflects the harsh reality that the island has been going through since 1959, where thousands of people have been imprisoned and deprived of their human rights. Through Cuban activists’ works, we can gather different experiences of Cuban political prisoners and their families, focusing on the impact of the repressive system on different population levels during the last 64 years under Communism. The exhibition includes supporting materials such as interviews with political prisoners and a timeline of political imprisonment, civil unrest, turmoil, and repression in the country.
