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, videos, podcasts, the website, talks and films for schools and universities, events and the creation of a full-size museum in London. We are recording video interviews with people who have experienced Communist rule and acquiring exhibits for the proposed museum.
