Witness Project

We produce an award-winning short video series featuring courageous men and women who experienced life under communism and want to share their cautionary and inspiring stories. The oral history mini-documentaries are screened across the country and internationally as well as disseminated widely online and through social media.

The veneer of civilization is paper thin. We are its guardians, and we can never rest.
The Honorable Tom Lantos, Congressional Co-Founder


We acquire, curate, and present to the public a growing collection of museum-grade art, archives, and artifacts that tell the story of more than 100 years of communism from the intellectual, social, economic, and historical vantages.
