    Background: This building is in the centre of Moscow. Documents, books and manuscripts are in the special cupboards. This deposit had been established forty years ago. All documents connected with the life and activities of Marx, Engels, and Lenin, are gathered here. 30,000 of Lenin documents, manuscripts, letters, notes, etc. are gathered in the deposit. 11 records keep for us the voice of Lenin. The Scientists made a great deal of work to restore the sound of the voice of the leader. We have very little material about Lenin, because as he told the cameraman: " Shoot as little as possible myself, and more - Revolution!". 400 photos of Lenin are preserved in the deposit. More than one thousand of documents of Lenin are not found yet. But quite recently 61 pages of Lenin manuscript had been found in Moscow. It was found in the old bookcase of the corrector, who kept for 50 years the original of the article, which had been published in "Pravda" in the 5th of May, 1918.

    The old and destroyed documents are restored to life in the restoration laboratory of the Institute. The copy of the original article can be used by historians, journalists and literature workers. The Lenin fund is open for everybody, who studies the great works of Lenin.
