Lest we forget: How communism treats children

John Suarez in Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter:

How communism treats children

"It's hard to think anyone would abuse children in such a way, but we all know nothing is beyond the sinister, evil ways of the Castros. They have forged a seat in Hell at the right side of the Devil..." - Tanya, commenting on essay on How Castro's Observe Christmas in Cuba

Ukranian child victims of Soviet Genocide in the 1930s

Unfortunately, the abuse of children is not limited to the Castros but is a feature of communism. In the case of Cuba under communism children have not only been abused but also massacred.

    This is one reason why Ceausescu, like Castro, could never pay for his crimes, even though he was eventually killed. He couldn't pay even if he'd been killed like the uncle of the current "Dear Leader" of North Korea. When evil goes beyond a certain point, earthly justice becomes impossible.
