The Liberation War Museum
The Liberation War Museum in Dhaka, Bangladesh was established in 1996. It commemorates the heroic struggle of the Bengali nation for their democratic and national rights. The prime objective of the museum is to raise the awareness of the new generations about the aspirations for which their forefathers had fought and the spirit of inclusiveness and tolerance that has been the hallmark of this part of Eastern India. It also encourages the public to take a firm stand against violations of human rights and the acts of genocide carried out in 1971.
Currently, the museum has in its collection 21,000 objects, which includes rare photographs, documents, coverage in both electronic and print media and materials used by freedom fighters and martyrs of the Liberation War.
