On the morning of November 9, 1989, it was unthinkable that the Berlin Wall would fall that evening. For nearly three decades, the Wall had stood as a symbol of a Europe divided between communist totalitarianism and free nations.
Yet the resilience of the peoples of the Captive Nations and the courage of dissidents in the face of tyranny relentlessly chipped away at the Iron Curtain and brought about its dramatic fall. Free people everywhere celebrated the inextinguishable desire for liberty that brought about the collapse of communism in Europe and the historic reunification of Germany.
With this collection, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation remembers the victims, celebrates the heroes, and is dedicated to preserving freedom and democracy in the 21st century.
