“The legacy of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, which triggered the start of World War II and forced the nations of Central and Eastern Europe into a terrifying 50 year period of murderous repression, deportation and cultural and ethnic genocide at the hands of the Nazis and Soviet Russia, demands further investigation and global exposure. We applaud and congratulate the government of Estonian for taking international leadership on this issue. Wishing you all success in this most important project from which the world must learn. For the sake of democracy and freedom, this story, which has affected so many millions of lives, must be told to future generations.”
