The first virtual museum dedicated to the history of the village of Diveevo in the Nizhny Novgorod region, where the Holy Trinity – St. Seraphim Diveevo Convent is located, opens.

The Diveevo Yesterday virtual museum publishes historical photographs of the 19th and 20th centuries from the life of the village and the convent. Today, the exposition features more than 200 exhibits – single shots, series of photos, as well as digitized newsreels and video recordings, reports the website of the Government of the Nizhny Novgorod region.

The creator of the virtual museum is a local journalist, Pavel Sushkov, in whose vaults, in his own words, there is still a huge amount of unsorted and undescribed material.

“The museum collection began with photographs of my father taken in 1990. When the residents of Diveevo found out about the idea, they began to offer me their own photos and films from family archives. As a result, all this grew into a large project “Diveevo. Living History,” said Pavel Sushkov.

It is noted that in 2022 the project “Diveevo. Living History” received a Presidential Grant for the Development of Civil Society, which made it possible to purchase equipment and pay for services to create new content.

Later, the administration of the Diveevo district also joined the project, thanks to which it was possible to start digitizing the films from the archive of the regional newspaper, Udarnik. In turn, local entrepreneurs paid for the development of a website for posting photos.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
