Interns visit Victims of Communism Museum

On July 28, a group of IWP interns visited the new Victims of Communism Museum, where they met with interns from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

During the visit, they enjoyed lunch and heard about the internship programs at VOC, FDD, and Heritage Foundation. IWP Internship Manager Mason Taylor presented our program, followed by talks by VOC Director of Academic Programs Ken Pope and by IWP professor Dr. Marek Jan Chodakiewicz.

During his talk, Dr. Chodakiewicz discussed “Death in the Intermarium: A Case Study of Mass Murder and Genocide in the Ukrainian lands, 1914-1956.” He covered all the slaughter that took place there in the first 50 years of the 20th century.
