Memorial Day

August the 23rd is the European Memorial Day of the Victims of Totalitarian Regimes
(Also known as International Black Ribbon Day)

Today we pause to remember the victims of totalitarian regimes in Europe during the 20th century

This day is also significant because it acknowledges the crimes committed by communists against Europeans

There were no previous days of remembrance for the victims of communism in Europe
