“We must not let them kill us, we must retain our dignity and we must carry on our work.”

- Arseny Roginsky, chair of the board, International Memorial Society

The Economist writes: "Mr Roginsky says Memorial now faces three key tasks: 'We must not let them kill us, we must retain our dignity and we must carry on our work.' Judging by the growing number of plaques on Russian houses and the lines of people queuing up to read out the names of Stalin’s victims, the fight is far from over."
