Ground for a "Victims of Communism Memorial" has been broken on a site near Capitol Hill.
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is a offshoot of the National Captive Nations Committee. I find this very appropriate.
The National Captive Nations Committee is a front for former Nazi collaborators and extreme rightwing totalitarians, and mainly for the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (Banderist), or OUN/B, large-scale Nazi collaborators in the murder of 60,000-100,000 Polish civilians in the so-called "Volhynian Massacres" of 1942-44; probably a million Soviet Jews; and tens of thousands, at least, of Soviet POWs, Russians, Ukrainians, Belorussians, and Poles.
There's a lot written about these "captive nation" fascist killers. Here are a few books:

This is part of the book by Russ Bellant, Old Nazis, the New Right, and the Republican Party. Boston: South End Press, 1991, available on-line at
Anybody should be proud to be attacked by such people. Naturally, communists everywhere should feel especially honored.
