    • RSS Remember the victims of communism: Column Added2014.08.25

      Seventy-five years ago this week, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed a pact of non-aggression and cooperation. The sinister 1939 pact (along with its secret provisions) between Hitler and Stalin and negotiated by Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov and Nazi German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, would conquer and divide Europe, half Nazi and half Communist. Fascism and Communism became aligned in the early stages of a conflict that would consume millions of lives in the years that followed.

      Remarks on receipt of the Lithuanian Diplomacy Star

      11 June 2014

      Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania, Washington, D.C.

      By George Weigel

                   I should like to begin by thanking Ambassador Pavilionis and the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the honor of this award.

                    More than thirty years ago, it was my privilege to work here in Washington on behalf of brave dissidents and civil society activists in what was then Soviet-occupied Lithuania – and especially on behalf of the leaders of the Lithuanian Catholic Committee for the Defense of Believers Rights. The leaders of the Committee, and many who participated in its work, did hard time in the Gulag because of their work for freedom; but they also sustained the longest-running, unbroken samizdat publication in the history of the Soviet Union, the Chronicle of the Catholic Church in Lithuania – a twentieth-century version of the ancient acts of the martyrs in the days of Roman imperium.
