The Rise of Communism

From Marx and Engels’ inception of Communist ideology to Lenin’s failed utopian promise, Gallery I envelops the visitor in a visceral first encounter with the violent revolutions born in Russia that swept across Europe starting with Lenin’s Bolshevik Revolution.

Viewers will be introduced to The Communist Manifesto, a tiny political pamphlet which would become the source of suffering for so many
