U.S.-Baltic Foundation

The U.S.- Baltic Foundation, Embassy of Lithuania, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation and The Heritage Foundation Sponsor Screening of Red Terror on the Amber Coast

WASHINGTON, DC- The U.S.-Baltic Foundation along with the Embassy of Lithuania, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation and The Heritage Foundation sponsored a screening of the new film Red Terror on the Amber Coast, this past Monday evening.  Introductory remarks were made by Dr. Lee Edwards, Chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation and Lithuanian Ambassador Audrius Bruzga.  Following the screening, film write David O’Rourke and film producer Kenneth Gumbert joined Dr. Edwards and Ambassador Bruzga for a panel discussion.

 

Red Terror

 

RedTerror on the Amber Coast documents the fifty-year-long struggle between the people of Lithuania and the Soviet KGB and their predecessors to impose Soviet control on a free and democratic, Western republic.  Using filmed interviews, archival photos and newsreel footage, it describes Stalin's use of state-sponsored terror to destroy opposition, collectivize agriculture and industry, and create a single social class all under party control.  Some interviews record the long-term, armed resistance by organized partisans to the KGB and its troops.  Others describe their experiences – as adults and children – of arrest, imprisonment, deportation to Siberia and the Arctic coast, and years as slave laborers in the mines and forests of the Far East.

 

Red Terror

 

Since 1990, The U.S. – Baltic Foundation has served as an education resource for policy makers in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and the United States. It has developed and implemented programs to strengthen democracy and free markets in those nations, and introduced Baltic leaders to new American audiences with a series of public affairs programs.  Please go to www.usbaltic.org  for more information.
