Truth. Justice. Memory. 

 

The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but communism didn’t. One hundred years after the Bolshevik Revolution, one fifth of the world’s population still lives under single-party communist regimes in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.

Bear Witness

From the famines, purges, and gulags of Soviet Union to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge, communists have killed more than 100 million people over the past century. Countless more suffer still. We tell the stories of these brave men and women. We honor those who resisted, and those who still resist. Learn More →

Dedicated to change.

This year, “living in truth” required us to condemn foreign governments, U.S. educational institutions, and publishing houses for historical revisionism. They are whitewashing the brutal record of communist party rule in some 40 countries and obscuring the many atrocities committed in the name of the world’s deadliest ideology: communism.

Telling the truth about communism meant confronting policies and statements of leading U.S. politicians, both Republican and Democrat. It meant calling out major media companies for spreading propaganda as news or refusing to mention the persecuted subjects of communist party-states today in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.
