Elena Gedminas-Stanevicius left Kelme, Lithuania, in 1946, with two children under the age of 4 (Alfonsas and Lione). Her husband Ipolitas and brother Zigmas had left earlier, so she loaded up 2 wagons of belongings with 4 horses, having no idea where she would end up. After witnessing horrible slaughters of people caught by Communists, she prayerfully reached Germany, where she met up with her husband and brother. The family lived in Blomberg, Germany for 3 yrs. where...

We have been accustomed to hear many stories of families ripped apart, their homes invaded at night, parents and children taken to the railroad and thrown into cattle cars. However, a Canadian never having experienced the horrors of war cannot describe the utter sinking of the soul when one searches and finds papers documenting the accusations of a neighbor on his neighbor - my mother’s brother. After the parents of Antanas Matukynas died one after another, as the eldest he had...
Our entire family in Szeged suffered under the Communist reign in Hungary after the Soviet occupation in 1945. But none of us felt it more than my father, Nógrádi Mihály, a small landowner, who resided at 13 Mokrini sor. He was taken away on false charges one night in the autumn of 1950 by the Hungarian Secret Police, known as ÁVO [Állam Védelmi Osztály].

In memory of all Croatians who suffered and perished at the hands of Tito and in honour of our parents who fled from communist Yugoslavia to Canada, a great land of opportunity.
In memory of my parents reunited March 9, 2013. Both experienced the horrors of war, lost family, friends and homeland. Both were grateful to find and start a new life in a free and democratic country. Both saw the evils of communism fall. It's our duty to respect and protect this hard fought freedom.
Dedicated to my parents who were forced to flee Ukraine from Russian-Soviet communist oppression, as well as to the Ukrainian people who were murdered, tortured and oppressed by those intent on destroying the Ukrainian nation.

Tadeusz Bejt sentenced in the staged trial was rehabilitated on January 22, 1993.

I make this donation in honour of a family friend, who along with her family was forced to leave Poland in 1969 as a result of the anti-Semitic purge perpetrated by the Communist regime. Hers was a normal, productive and well-integrated Polish family that was constantly harassed, then stripped of their Polish citizenship against their will and expelled from Communist...

In memory of my father Jaan Kross jun. He was born in free Estonia in 1920 and studied international law. He was active in national resistance to the Nazis in April 1944. Released by the short lived Estonian government in September 1944, he was arrested again, this time by the Russian NKVD in 1946, for the same "crime", resistance to occupation and struggle for a democratic and independent Estonia. He spent 8 years in various GULAG camps, Inta in Komi, Russia, among others. He survived and...
In memory of my grandfather Jaan Kross. He was born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1878. In independent Estonia he worked as a factory manager. He was arrested by the Soviet occupation forces in 1944 as an "enemy of the people" and was killed in the GULAG camp in Potma, Russia, in 1947. We don't know where his grave is, but his memory will never die.

My family and I have been victims of communism in many ways, we suffered in Cuba, psychologically and otherwise. We were harassed, our house was searched, and that is why I had to leave Cuba in 1997.

I was 4 years old when my father Ismael Sambra, and my brother Guillermo were sent to jail. To my father and my brother who have educated us to love freedom and democracy.
To all those dissidents that have spent years in jail, under Castro's communist regime, and to their families.
To my family, especially to my husband Ismael Sambra, a fearless writer and journalist, who has never stopped battling the atrocities of communism.
|1464||Miriam Bressler Cisnero||
When I was 9 years old, just four years after my mother passed away, my father was sent to prison because he was an outspoken activist against the Fidel Castro dictatorship. For many years I had to endure the exclusion from social acceptance because I was the daughter of a counter revolutionary, in the eyes of the regime. My will to fight this type of government, capable of inflicting such unbearable pain in a child, grew stronger with the years, so I became a human rights activist myself...
To the dissidents and political prisoners in Cuba. To all those refugees who for political reasons remain fighting against Castro's dictatorship.
|1462||Guillermo Ismael Sambra||
In 1993 I was sentenced to spend the next 8 years of my life in a Cuban prison. My only crime was to write and distribute propaganda against the Cuban regime, a communist dictatorship that has been in power for the last 54 years. It is controlling the whole nation in every aspect, without permitting the slimmest sign of opposition. In May of 1998, after five years and four months in prison, and thanks to the efforts of Amnesty International, Pope John Paul II and the Government of Canada, I...
To all those who kept a vertical position facing harassments, tortures and any kind of abuses from the regime against prisoners and the people in the biggest prison of the world that is Cuba; also to those seven political prisoners who, at the end of 1994 risked their lives during 40 days in hunger strike in the Prison of Bouiato, in which my older son Guillermo Sambra participated when he was only 22 years old. We also dedicate it to our friend Marcelo Amelo, who later died in this jail...

This is the story of what happened to my mother and her family. My mother, Julia Siomkajlo Szypowska, was forcibly deported by the Soviets on February 10, 1940 from Eastern Poland to the northern regions of Kazakhstan, on the very border of Siberia. They were awoken in the middle of the night and given less than an hour to be ready to leave their home and all their belongings. She was deported just because she was Polish, and for no other reason. She was deported along with her elderly...

Humans seem to be the only mammals that regularly and indiscriminately torture and kill their own species, often for no better reason then that the “others” do not fit into a perceived correct mindset. So it was in the former Soviet Union after the revolution. The target of the killing was the leadership and educational individuals, but to get these there was indiscriminant destruction and many others died as well. My father’s family was not in the group that was being targeted, being...
In memory of Karlis Otto Valkovskis of Latvia; my grandfather who was sent to Siberia, and whom I never had the chance to meet.

Dedicated to Alzbeta Fitmova. In 1948, when communists took power in Czechoslovakia, she was a teacher in a small remote village in current Slovakia. Government ordered all crosses/crucifixes to be removed from the classroom’s wall. However, parents met and insisted on keeping the cross, so she left it on the wall. For this she was imprisoned and kept in very harsh conditions for a gentle woman. She died soon after her release.

Dedicated to my parents, Jaroslav and Zdenka Tmej of Toronto. My parents fled their homeland of Czechoslovakia after World War II in the wake of the Communist takeover. While building a new life for themselves in Canada, they continued to support the fight against Communism in Czechoslovakia and other lands. They still work tirelessly to ensure the next generations understand the sacrifices they made, the hardships they endured, and the pain and suffering of those left behind.

In memory of my father, Janis Kalnins, and dedicated to those transported from Riga's railway yard to Siberia in June 1941.
As a child, I grew up listening to many war stories and accounts of cruelty, degradation and injustice inflicted on innocent citizens of Latvia by the Soviet Union under Stalin's regime. There is, however, one incident told by my father, Janis Kalnins, that stands out in my mind.
The incident happened in Riga's railway yard in June 1941, where at that...

My late grandmother arrived from the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, this after her peasant family was first transported around the U.S.S.R., including a stint in Siberia; she and her family were farmer peasants of German stock. Thus, they were undesirable elements, "enemies of the people," is how a devout communist might have put it.

In memory of my father, Antons Nadolskis, who spent 10 years in the Gulag in Siberia for helping people escape from Latvia to Sweden during WWII. He and six other brave men organized small fishing boats to carry refugees and leave at night from the coast of Kurzeme, Latvia to go to Gottland in Sweden.
On March 5, 1945, he put my mother, me and my younger brother on a boat and said he would come later, on "the last boat." Before he could do so, he was captured by the Communists and...

Although many in my family both in Russia and in Ukraine suffered under Communism, I would like to dedicate this tribute to my grandfather, Rafael Voetsky. Rev. Rafael Voetsky was a Russian Orthodox military chaplain at the outbreak of the revolution. He was taken at gunpoint from his wife and five children never to be seen from again. My grandmother and her children had to flee her community of Nikolaevsk on the Amur in order to escape a similar fate.

I hope that the memorial to victims of totalitarian Communism will also wake up all of those people who still think that Communism is good.
