Memory of MaidanThe set of events and efforts that formed the basis of the phenomenon of Euromaidan, currently have unambiguous interpretation and evaluation, but certainly, we can say: Maidan became a kind of epicenter of major changes in the country and a symbol of patriotism and sacrifice. It started the process of transformation, not only on the political scene, but also commenced social and cultural transformations. Obviously, the consequences of this explosion of anger and dignity, which unleashed enormous social energy, will be felt for decades both in geopolitical terms and in internal social and political relations. The significance of the event, the memory of hundreds of people who paid with their lives for their choices and civil position, determine the need for its full comprehension and study, preservation and presentation of historical memory.

Location and siteThe site is situated in the very central part of Kyiv in Pechersky and Shevchenkivsky districts.
The place for memorial-museum complex is located exactly on the territory of the Revolution of Dignity events, on the Alley of Heavenly Hundred Heroes.

The Alley of Heavenly Hundred Heroes is the main place of commemorating the tragic events of Revolution of Dignity. The location of the site on the hill of the Alley of Heavenly Hundred Heroes is symbolic, as during the fighting actions of the Revolution of Dignity de facto unarmed protesters marched from the lowland of Khreschatyk Street to storm the “hill” against security forces armed with rearms. The Alley of Heavenly Hundred Heroes became the “Ukrainian Golgotha.” Museum building on the hill shall symbolize the triumph of good and resurrection from the dead.
Terra DignitasThe competition „National Memorial to the Heavenly Hundred Heroes and Revolution of Dignity Museum“ is based on results created in the Terra Dignitas competition.
