“Importing Class War - the unknown story of the Soviet Invasion of Poland, 1939"
Talk by Roger Moorhouse, author of First To Fight, London, November 2019.
The Museum of Communist Terror aims to keep alive knowledge and understanding of the deaths, terror and economic failure that took place under Communist regimes, primarily in the 20th century. The strategy is to do this through social media, this website, talks and films for schools and universities, lobbying for improvements in the teaching of the history of Communist regimes, events and the creation of one or more small museums leading up to the development of a full-size museum in London. Video interviews are being made with people who have survived Communist oppression or whose lives have been affected. We are seeking to acquire artefacts for the Museum.
