The National Memory Institute (Slovak: Ústav pamäti národa) is a Slovak public institution that holds the police records of the fascist Slovak State and communist Czechoslovak Socialist Republic regimes that ruled Slovakia during the twentieth century.[1] The Institute also promotes research into these periods of Slovak history and educates the general public of this history.[2] The founder of the institute was Ján Langoš, who served as director until his death in a car crash in 2006.[1]
