Victims of Communism Remembered June 9 Wreath Laying

From Human Events:

More than one dozen ambassadors from former Communist countries will lay wreaths at a June 9, 2011 program of remembrance at the statue that is the heart of Washington’s Victims of Communism Memorial Park.

Representative from ethic and religious groups who suffered at the hands of the Communists will also attend, said, Lee Edwards, the chairman of the Victims of Communism Foundation, the organization that raised money for the park and statue.
