Last Address (Perm region)
Description: The Last Address (Russian: Последний Адрес, Posledniy Adres) is a civic initiative to commemorate the victims of repressions in the Soviet Union. The essence of the initiative is that simple people deserve to be commemorated, not only "VIPs" which typically receive memorial plaques. A small commemorative plaque (palm-sized) is installed on the houses known as the last residential addresses of those arrested. Every commemorative plaque is dedicated to one person only, with the project operating according to the motto “One name, one life, one sign”. “Last Address” was launched in Perm in February 2014. The first four plaques were installed on 10 August 2015.
