In Brief… The Chechen Archive


The Chechen Archive was created by human rights activist Zainap Gashaeva, whose organisation filmed hundreds of hours of footage since the first Chechen War began in 1994. When the so-called “counter-terrorist operation” was launched in 1999, these resources were secretly transferred to the Society for Threatened Peoples in Switzerland where the Archive is housed.
