What measures did people take to preserve and pass on their beliefs and practices from generation to generation?

This portrait of an Ismaili Muslim family living in the Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan explores how they practiced religion under the watchful eyes of Soviet officials and how they passed on their religious beliefs and practices during the Soviet Union’s repression of religion. It also shows the reinvigoration of their beliefs in post-Soviet times.
