Black Ribbon Day

August 23rd, otherwise known as Black Ribbon day, is the day of remembrance for the victims of Stalinism and Nazism.


Yesterday, two ALJA executive board members, Ēriks Lazdins and Nikolajs Timrots, laid flowers at the Victims of Communism Memorial in DC on the anniversary of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

“Today, as it has done every August 23rd since 2009, the European Union will mark this anniversary as a Day of remembrance “for the victims of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes” in order to “nourish [Europe’s] commitment to stand up for our common values and principles”. ”
