Numerous studies consistently reveal that America’s high school and college students do not know basic facts about the history of communism in the 20th century. In this environment, it is no wonder that personalities and symbols of communism are worn on clothing and even celebrated as signifying equality and justice. In an effort to remedy this sad reality, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in 2013 released an all new high school curriculum resource—“Communism: Its Ideology, Its History, Its Legacy”—intended for public, private, and home schools across the country.
The curriculum on communism was written by Professor Paul Kengor, PhD, and Dr. Lee Edwards, PhD. Claire Griffin served as editor and academic adviser.
