On December 17, 1993, the non-profit, non-partisan Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation was established by an Act of Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton, with a mission “to educate this generation and future generations about the history, philosophy, and legacy of communism.” Dr. Lee Edwards—author of “Freedom’s College: The History of Grove City College” (Regnery Publishing, 2000)—serves as Foundation Chairman (with President George W. Bush as Honorary Chairman).
On June 16, 2009, the Foundation launched The Global Museum on Communism, a virtual museum with interactive timelines, maps, and archives. The international portal was created “to honor the more than 100 million victims of communist tyranny and educate future generations about past and present communist atrocities. The museum serves as a symbol of hope and a needed place of remembrance in a day when many are forgetting the high price communists exacted from the captive peoples and the rest of the free world.”
To complement the museum’s Main Exhibits and National Exhibits, professor of political science and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College—Dr. Paul Kengor—was asked to contribute a Special Exhibit in the form of a Feature Article concerning “The War on Religion.” To read Dr. Kengor’s composition, please see the link below.
