“Restore history together with archives, In the wake of the archives - Batumi”
On December 26 the Archive of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Archive Administration under the Government of the Autonomous
Republic of Adjara held a presentation of a joint edition entitled “In the wake of the archives - Batumi”. This edition was produced within the
framework of the MIA Archive’s project “Restore history together with archives”. The book “In the wake of the archives - Batumi” covers
interesting documents reflecting the preparation process for the August Uprising of 1924 in Batumi. The reader will learn about: on what grounds
nobles and Begs were exiled and how Soviet authority punished national patriots. The book also provides the reader with the list of those people
who were sent into exile or persecuted, as well as execution protocols, and unique and important letters, as well as photographs, which were
inaccessible to people before.
The event was attended by Mr. Givi Mikanadze, Rector of the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Mr. Omar Tushurashvili, Director of
the Archive of the Ministry of Internal affairs, Ms. Maia Ivanishvili, Head of the Archive Administration under the Government of the
Autonomous Republic of Adjara and other invited guests.
The event included showing of a documentary film “Rebellion in Adjara - 1924”, which was produced based on the archival recordings.
