This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. A watershed moment, to be sure. We forget too easily, however, the victims of communism, millions of dead and tortured. Current events at home and abroad remind us how quickly events can unfold and trigger political shifts, how seemingly overnight change of the most dramatic kind can occur. It is wise and sobering to reflect on the recent past as a reminder of the dangers of ideology, or, as Russell Kirk referred to it, "armed doctrine."
To remember this anniversary, we’ve packed together two critically important books: Paul Hollander’s From the Gulag to the Killing Fields, which gathers together more than forty dramatic personal memoirs of Communist violence and repression from political prisoners across the globe; and Alain Besançon’s A Century of Horrors, which examines the destruction caused by Communism and Nazism, and explains why the relation between these terrible ideologies is all but forgotten by Western elites.
