Welcome to The Global Museum on Communism , an international portal created to honor the more than 100 million victims of communist tyranny and educate future generations about past and present communist atrocities.

The first of its kind, this online museum offers an accurate history of communism, a nexus of first-rate scholarship on past and present communist regimes and an interface for victims and their families to tell their stories.

To maintain an accurate and up-to-date listing of the victims of communism, we have provided an online registry where families and friends can ensure that their loved ones are never forgotten.

The museum features powerful images that our research partners have recently recovered, including photographs, propaganda posters, audio recordings and video footage that will move you and encourage hope.

Communism has nothing to do with love. Communism is an excellent hammer which we use to destroy our enemy.

- Mao Tse-tung  

The Global Museum on Communism also serves academic communities by preserving a permanent record of the immense suffering inflicted on untold millions by communist regimes.

In the Hall of Infamy are Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro and other dictators responsible for a century of communist terror.

And in our Gallery of Heroes are the brave men and women who suffered as political prisoners, raised the banner of liberty as dissidents, and lived as everyday citizens under oppressive communist regimes.

Our 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.

The Jews understand the power of memorials, museums and centers of academic inquiry to protect the world from resurgent anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere.

Joining the growing desire for permanent places of reflection and research, The Global Museum on Communism provides a bulwark against recurrent communist sympathies wherever they appear.

By educating about past horrors and pointing to present dangers, the Global Museum on Communism ensures that “never again” will nations and peoples allow so evil a tyranny to terrorize the world.
