Victims of Communism Memorial

At New Jersey and Massachusetts Avenues, NW. Erected by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.

There is a virtual museum in the works to accompany the memorial, which has been on Mass Ave near Union Station since summer of 2007. The memorial was authorized by Congress in 1998.

And of course the obvious question: What about the Worldwide Victims of Capitalism Memorial? Maybe after the recession/depression is over. Maybe not. WTO, IMF, IADB, NAFTA, CAFTA, HMO, NYSE, IRBD; an alphabet soup of zero sum games. A few winners, lots of losers and many victims.
