Пашпарт БНР Янкі Чарапука з візамі, па якім ён эміграваў у ЗША, зьяўляецца доказам, што гэта быў рэальны дакумент, і знаходзіцца сёньня ў калекцыі Francis Skaryna Belarusian Library and Museum in London на выставе.

SHIRIN AKINER (1942-2019)
Born to a Pakistani diplomat and Welsh mother, she wrote about Belarusian poets and mysterious middle age books from Belarus.
Shirin was a prominent British researcher of Belarusian Tartars' K’it’abs. She passed away several days ago.
Prof McMillin, who knew Shirin very well, wrote this short piece that tells a story of her attachment to Belarus.

Белсат зрабіў міні-фільм пра нашу бібліятэку, а таксама пра іншыя цікавыя беларускія месцы ў горадзе Лондане.
Адзін з каментароў "Гэты маленькі музей пры царкве мае больш каштоўныя экспанаты, чым дзяржаўныя музеі (некаторыя) у Беларусі)"
Стаўце 👍 калі думаеце гэтаксама!

Год таму мы распавядалі пра прэмію Каралеўскага інстытуту брытанскіх архітэктараў для будынку беларускай грэка-каталіцкай царквы ў брытанскай сталіцы. Прапануем вярнуцца ў гэтае месца, каб сустрэцца з архітэктарам святыні. Побач з царквой дзее таксама Бібліятэка і музей Францішка Скарыны. Пра ўсё гэта – у рэпартажы Рафала Андрасюка.

Даўно марылі паглядзець на адзіную беларускую бібліятэку, што захоўвае арыгіналы кніг Скарыны, Статуты Вялікага княста, а таксама архіў беларускай эміграцыі 20 стагоддзя?
У гэту суботу - бясплатны тур па ахівах і калекцыях бібліятэкі!
Далучайцеся да другога дня Беларускай канферэнцыі ў Лондане, што пройдзе ў нас 30 сакавіка.
