Teaching Truth. Seeking Justice. Keeping 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.

Our Mission

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.

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.
