The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC) is devoted to commemorating the more than 100 million victims of communism around the world, pursuing the freedom of those still living under totalitarian regimes, and educating future generations about the ideology, history, and legacy of communism. Today, one-fifth of humanity still lives under single-party communist regimes that commit some of the worst human rights abuses on the planet. Despite communism’s record of oppression and bloodshed, new generations are warming to collectivist ideas because they don’t know the facts about the true nature and history of communism.
We must remind a forgetful world and an uninformed new generation that true socialism is slavery, and communism kills
