Exhibition "Victory over fascism"
May 9 and 10, 2006

KVH Carpathia, in cooperation with the Crime investigation and evaluation bureau of the Slovak Police forces, have organized a small exhibition with the topic: “Victory over fascism” in the premises of the M. Hodža elementary school on Podjavorinskej street in Bratislava. This exhibition was meant for the pupils of this and other elementary schools in the surroundings and the aim was to bring closer the events to our youngest generation. On this exhibition, we have presented some exhibits from the collections of the Crime investigation bureau as well as the collections of our members. Club representatives have prepaired a professional presentation for the children, in which we, with the help of pictures and the exhibits, tried to explain the children the basics of this conflict. The children could see and touch original weapons and equipment of all armies, which took part in this conflict, among which were such rare exhibits as the Czechoslovak heavy machine gun Mk.37, German MG-34 and MG-42 machine guns, Russian Maxim heavy machine gun, as well as Russian, U.S., German and Czechoslovak rifles and machinepistols. We also had a model of an armored train from the Slovak national uprising, which was kindly lent to our club for the purpose of this exhibition by the Museum of transport branch of the Slovak technical museum.

The exhibit took place thanks to the support from the following institutions:

Crime investigation and evaluation bureau of the Slovak Police forces
M. Hodža elementary school on Podjavorinskej street in Bratislava
Museum of transport branch of the Slovak technical museum.
