Throwback Thursday: Victims of Communism

This is a different sort of Throwback Thursday. Eight years ago, President George H. Bush dedicated the world’s first, and still only, memorial to all of the Victims of Communism:


“We have an obligation to future generations to record the crimes of the 20th century and make sure they’re never repeated. In this hallowed place we recall the lessons of the Cold War: that freedom is precious and cannot be taken for granted.”

 

This past week, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation held its 8th annual, Rollcall of Nations when wreaths are laid and honorees speak and, most importantly, the over 100 million victims of communism, those who have survived the regimes of the past, and those who are still living under communism are not forgotten.
