Arseny Roginsky, chair of the board of the International Memorial Society, has died today, 18 December 2017. 

For many years before the creation of Memorial, he had begun the fight for historical truth and human rights - and for that was deprived of his liberty. He continued the struggle until his last day. Without him, the work of Memorial over all these years would not have been possible. And we cannot imagine Memorial without him now. 

Thank you, Arseny Borisovich. You will remain with us for ever.
