"Anna Herba, Documentary activity of the Centre “Borderland of Arts, Cultures and Nations” in
Sejny. For many years, the idea of the promotion and protection of diverse types of cultural expressions
and, as a consequence, the fi ght against culture unifi cation has constituted the main aspect of
the UNESCO’s cultural policy. A lot of non-profi t organisations, e.g. the Centre “Borderland of Arts,
Cultures and Nations” in Sejny, undertake tasks in this fi eld. The Centre’s activities — consisting in
educational, artistic, prosocial, research and animation tasks — include the respect for cultural, religious
and national diversity. As part of the functioning of the institution, the Centre for Documentation
of Borderland Cultures (CDBC) has been established and it deals with collecting, processing, sharing
and promoting document collections of the institution. The CDBC collection consists of written,
graphic, sound and electronic documents. There are mainly books, magazines, photographs, fi lms,
press materials, etc. The centre’s collection mostly promotes cultural wealth of nations of Central and
Eastern Europe, Asia and Caucasus. It consists of a wide range of cultural expressions from all over
the world which have not been fully identifi ed yet, as the CDBC includes numerous unique materials,
such as: Czesław Miłosz’s Collection, Tomas Venclova’s Collection, fi lm recordings from the private
archive of Jerzy Ficowski, a collection of military maps from the end of the 18th century and the beginning
of the 19th century donated by Paweł Huelle, and a collection of press clippings and magazines
regarding, among others, national and ethnic minorities."
