Totalitarian Regimes in Europe
A traveling exhibition dedicated to countries that suffered under totalitarianism.
Opening remarks by Göran Lindblad, President of the Platform of European Memory and Conscience.
The exhibition exposes chief perpetrators of civilian crimes under Communism, along with damning statistics on mass killings, deportations, imprisonment, forced labor, politically motivated executions, etc.
While crimes committed during WW II by Nazi and Fascist totalitarian regimes were internationally condemned and led to war crimes tribunals, it is still not part of popular discourse that Communist totalitarianism – starting with the Russian revolution of 191 7and surviving in some countries till today – is responsible for the destruction of more human lives than WW II and its atrocities.
Communist perpetrators of crimes committed largely against their own citizens were never brought to justice, let alone internationally condemned.
