Gallery III


Miracles and Tears

Gallery III presents the arduous struggle for freedom by those who led the resistance and kept the flame of liberty alive. Visitors will meet Aleksander Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov, Armando Valladares, Wei Jingsheng, and Václav Havel. Next, visitors will have the chance to learn about the disastrous escalation of Communism and how it spread throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America. While 1989, the “year of miracles,” saw the fall of Communism in the Eastern Bloc, this gallery will also honor those today who must still fight against Communism in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.
