The Pathway to Liberty
Brick Number: Donated by:sort descending Dedication:
00315 Vitezslava Plsek

In memory of my husband, Vlastimil, who spent over 11 years in a Communist concentration camp and was forced to work in uranium mines in Jachymov in what was then Czechoslovakia. 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.

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.

Taken abruptly from their homes and travelling in cattle cars under horrendous conditions, they went to far off labour camps. Many of them have no graves to call their own, and it's our moral duty to honour them with a memorial in Ottawa. Communism is a cancerous, God-less system that has perfected the methods of extermination...

I was so touched by the news that Canada is planning to build a Memorial to Victims of Communism. Our family was one of the many victims, and my husband, two children and I escaped from Hungary in 1956. Canada was so generous to us and helped us get a new start.
 
My daughter was only ten when we escaped, but all her life she was curious about the events that led us leave our country and become refugees. I wrote notes in Hungarian, as I remembered them, and she decided to...

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.

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.

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 time my father...

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 sent to...

They were fortunate to have found a home in Canada, for which they were forever grateful for accepting them. 
As to the refugees that were repatriated back to the Soviet Union, their fates were...

The fate of my father, Andrej Kun, under communism
 
In the early 1950’s the Czechoslovakian communist regime began to force all farmers to establish cooperatives (in Czech, JZD or kolkhoz). Our family owned 50 acres of land in southeastern Czechoslovakia, close to the village of Svodin, where we lived. My father, like most farmers didn’t want to give up land he had inherited from his forefathers, to join some cooperative...

Speech by Walter Friesen to the dedication of the Tribute to Liberty Site Dedication.
 
My father was born in South Russia, now the Ukraine, in a Mennonite village about half way between Zaporozhe and Odessa. The Mennonite community had moved to Russia in the late 1700s and was well established and highly productive in the Russian economy. Most were farmers, industrialists, and educators. This was...

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...
