Me: I’m going to Albania

Everybody: WHY ALBANIA, so odd?!
Hope you come back safe and alive!
Hope you have all your organs when back!
Please stay safe!

Albanians: ARE YOU HAPPY HERE? DO YOU ENJOY? PLEASE TELL EVERYONE WE ARE NICE PEOPLE AND WANT MORE TOURISTS!

This just shows how we create an image about people based on media perception or what the masses want you to know. Applies to everyone. So before you judge another person or a community again please get to know them personally, you’ll open up to a new world.

Although I do believe this book has great historical value as it explores the background of one of Latin America's most iconic figures, it was an underwhelming read that left much to be desired. Che Guevara's Motorcycle Diaries follows the hapless adventures of Che and his friend Alberto Granado as they travel throughout South America on an old motorcycle called la Poderosa II as they come into contact with some of the continent's many colorful figures and cultures. The pair are newly graduated Medical Students who's insatiable desire to wander is quenched by means of traveling the continent and befriending locals of all walks of life, and making a few enemies along the way. The book was interesting as it narrated multiple Latin American cultures from the future revolutionaries’ point of view, but the narrative was often hard to follow, and in my opinion it should not be picked up as a means to learn about Latin American history, but as a means to learn about the history of Che himself.

I figured with all the talk about @hbo's #Chernobyl, now would be a good time to share my thoughts on Alexander Solzhenitsyn's Cancer Ward. The Nobel-prize winning novelist who achieved international fame for his investigative journalism on Stalin's Gulags wrote this haunting novel as an allegory on the cancerous state of the Soviet Union. In this novel, Solzhenitsyn provides a microcosm of the Post-Stalin USSR through his depiction of life inside a Cancer Ward; he portrays many negative attributes such as the various travel restrictions, limited speech, classism in a society that abolished classist systems, and withholding of information that plagued Russia during this time period, and still does on many levels. At the same time, the author writes an uplifting story about various people finding solace and comfort and even love from their fellow cancer patients and medical providers, which is nothing short of Solzhenitsyn's incredible writing abilities.

This super-amazing (deep/meaningful/artistic) Russian political dissident poster exhibit is still up at the #WendeMuseum for several weeks.
.
(When I saw it several months ago :),) I felt inspired by both the wit and the wide variety of creative illustration styles.
.
Just as with the Nazi crimes, I worry that history is burying the horrors of communism along with the passive fading of memories.
.
And in the case of communism, it is actually much worse, because most countries, including Russia, have not fully owned up to the crimes and suffering caused by these totalitarian regimes.
.
And Westerners - who innocently collect communist paraphernalia because they look cool or fun - do not realize that they are inadvertently endorsing the genocides and terror created under those symbols. When I see the hammer and sickle, I immediately think, evil, horrific evil, just as one would seeing a swastika.
.
So, I probably also like this exhibit on a personal level, having grown up under the dim communist regime in Romania. I understand what it means to not be allowed to talk freely, something our society is grappling with today on multiple levels.
.
So, for me, these very critical and satirically comical posters have probably much more meaning than for an average American. To be honest, I was very shocked when I saw them, wondering how in the world these artists had the guts to risk their lives creating them.

My Life by Fidel Castro and Ignacio Ramonet takes the reader on an intimate journey throughout the life of the iconic revolutionary. This biography was thoroughly enjoyable; it is written in interview format between Castro and famous Spanish journalist Ramonet. It begins with Castro's idealistic childhood in Biran, and concludes with Castro's thoughts on the near future of Cuba (the book was released years prior to Castro's death.) In this book, Castro also offers his insights and points of view on different world affairs, including his take on neoliberalism, capitalism, Europe, the America's, and even his favorite foods and writers. Within the book, Castro often denounces claims made by the United States against him and the Cuban Revolution, it leaves the reader often wondering who is telling the truth? The book was very fluid and read easily, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about modern Cuban history. #fidelcastro #castro #ignacioramonet #cuba #cubanhistory #latinxhistory #latinxliterature #communism #communisthistory #latinxcommunism #cubanmissilecrisis #bayofpigsinvasion #cheguevara #bookreviews #biographyreviews #scribner #scribnerpublishers #scribnerpublishing

#Budapest you stole my heart with your beautiful city and preserved architecture, despite the horrific tragedies that have happened here that I would have never known about.

Traveling to #Hungary has taught me more about the holocaust and #communism than I ever imagined.  I never knew this sweet, little country had so much to hide, but the more time I spend, the more you open your beauty to be seen.  I saw so much in 5 days, and left so much to still be explored.  Eastern Europe intrigues me more now than before.

As usual, my stories tell more of a story than my posts, but I couldn't not share some of the sights of the city.  I've got a flight to Kiev, Ukraine tomorrow, so stay tuned to see what I get into as I delve deeper into an education in #communisthistory and #Chernobyl.

What were you doing at 19 years old? This is Angelo Herndon, Ohio’s own, the son of a black coal worker who labored ten to fourteen hours a day in the mines and died young of black lung disease. At the age of 13 Herndon himself left home to work in the Kentucky coal mines, before being given a copy of the communist manifesto by a white coworker. Herndon, at the age of 19, was arrested for attempting to organize black and white workers in Atlanta in 1932. At one rally he drew 400 black workers and 150 white workers together. This mixed race crowd in the Jim Crow south terrified the authorities. His case galvanized the public, and he eventually won a narrow 5-4 Supreme Court case that struck down Georgia’s “insurrection” law. Herndon emerged a hero, and we should all remember his name. #angeloherndon #blackhistory #ushistory #communistsarethereasonyouhaverights #cpusa #communisthistory #blackbolshevik #ohio #atlanta #ohiohistory #coalminer #coalmining

Finished reading ‘Wild Swans’ the other week. It’s quite a thick book but I found it hard to put down. I couldn’t agree more with the review on the cover “It’s impossible to exaggerate the importance of this book”. Being female, it was hugely impactful for me, but I feel like everyone needs to read it.

It’s well-written in how it covers three generations of women in China, starting from the pre-Communist era when there were still concubines, all the way through to the Communist takeover and Mao’s Cultural Revolution.  And I think it’s actually still banned in China. 
So if you’re looking for something different to read, I definitely recommend this one.

I've been living in Baku working as an English teacher since the beginning of this year. From my first visit in March 2018, I was head over heels in love with this place. Little remnants of its Communist past can still be found - rusty Ladas, locals conversing in Russian, Soviet carriages rattling around the metro and officials in austere Ushanka hats. But this city is so much more. Its sandstone coloured, Moorish architecture reflects its Turkic roots and futuristic buildings popping up all over give it a modern vibe. This city is a constant pleasant surprise 🇦🇿

The Pol Pot Regime: Race, Power and Genocide in Cambodia 1975-79 is absolutely full of well researched facts and statistics, illuminated by and endless number of personal stories and is a great read for anyone looking for an entrance to Khmer Rouge history. The structure, in three parts, is both clear and helpful for the reader to follow. However, in many places the highly academic style of writing seems to cover the lack of analysis of the facts and stats presented.  #historybooks #qmulhistory #cambodia #communisthistory #cpk #khmerrouge #killingfields #adaughterofcambodiaremembers #s21 #polpot #polpotregime #bookstagram #holidayreading @goodreads a good find on @abebooks saving book lovers cash

Lovely to see the Republican flag in Puerta del Sol, where it was flown first in 1931.. today all politicians are talking about democracy as if it had been invented in 1978, conveniently forgetting about the democratically elected Spanish Republic and the Constitution of 1931. Manifestación esta mañana contra la Constitución española del 78 y el papel de la Monarquia. Nos ilusiona ver banderas republicanas en la Puerta del Sol donde ondearon por vez prinera en 1931. Hoy los políticos se llenan la boca de democracia como si se hubiera inventado en el 78 y se olvidan convenientemente de la República Española elegida democráticamente asi como la Constitución de 1931. #acrossmadrid #spanishrepublic #republicaespañola #pce #weareantifascists #wearestillhere #republicaya #estaesmibandera #porla3república #República #communisthistory #socialistpartyhistory #workingclasshistory #wehavenotforgotten #memoriahistorica #partidocomunista #noalamonarquia #citizensnotsubjects #democraciarealya #francogenocida #noalaleydeamnistia77 #lollamandemocraciaynoloes #vivalarepublica #nivallenialmudena

El Congreso fundacional del Partido Comunista de China se celebró en esta casa en la Concesión Francesa de Shanghai. El Congreso sesionó 8 días y reunió a 13 delegados de 6 provincias. Mao Zedong fue uno de los dos representantes de Hunan pero no fue elegido para el entonces Comité Permanente.

La Internacional Comunista envió dos representantes al Congreso: el holandés Maring y el soviético Nikolsky. La policía asaltó la vivienda pero los delegados huyeron a tiempo y continuaron el Congreso en un barco alquilado.

I love this photo of the DDR team following their gold medal win at the 1976 Olympics. Though international success was largely anathema to the East Germans, the Olympics were an exception. Given they faced the Soviet Union in the semis (and Poland in the final, after they beat Brazil) it was a far from easy victory!

In Tyranny- a great book to get you thinking and hugely popular however the history student in me feels the books is missing very important references (there isn’t a single footnote in the book). Although Snyder refers to history that most people know about his examples are null due to this academic oversight.  #ontyranny #ontyrannytwentylessonsfromthetwentiethcentury #historybooks #historystudent #bookstagram #lifelessons #politics #germanhistory #communisthistory #timothysnyder #uspolitics #midterms #2018 #educated #book #reading #student

I have been exerting effort to come to St. Petersburg repeatedly largely because of its history as Leningrad (1924-1991). I am amazed with the fantasy-like glamour of its palaces and churches but the memorials to the city’s time as Leningrad are what deeply resonate with me. I am back to the Monument to the Heroic Defenders of Leningrad with three of our friends who are visiting Russia for the first, and hopefully not, the last time. #picoftheday #bestoftheday #selfie #groufie #russia #stpetersburg #leningrad #monumenttotheheroicdefendersofleningrad #sovietunion #communisthistory

With Spanish Civil War veteran, Resistance fighter in Paris and ex-political prisoner under Franco, Luis Martin Bielsa, in Barcelona. Luis came to Barcelona in 1945 with a printing machine and was working underground for the Communist Party until he was arrested in 1946 and served 6 years in prison.  Luis is now almost 97 years old and it is an honour to shake his hand and thank him in person for his fight against Fascism. Aquí estamos con el veterano de la guerra civil, veterano de la Resistencia en Paris y ex-prisionero politico durante la dictadura de Franco, Luis Martin Bielsa, en Barcelona.  Luis entró de nuevo en España en 1945 con una maquina de imprenta y estuvo trabajando en la clandestinidad para el Partido Comunista hasta que fue arrestado en 1946 y sentenciado a 6 años de prisión.  Luis ahora tiene casi 97 años y es un honor poder estrecharle la mano y agradecerle en persona su lucha contra el Fascismo.  #hero #heroe #resistencia #República #antifascista #weareantifascists #communisthistory #partidocomunista #acrossmadrid #spanishcivilwartours #spanishcivilwar #respect #FrenchResistence #antifascisthistory #Barcelona #alwaysinourhearts

Today 7 October, 1892, Louis Fraina was born in Galdo, Italy. Fraina immigrated to New York City and became active in left-wing politics. Fraina befriended Leon Trotsky during his exile in New York in 1917 and became the first albeit temporary secretary of the Communist Party of the United States. Louis Fraina lived here at 3246 Kingsbridge Avenue in the Bronx. Leon Trotsky visited this apartment several times during his exile.

In 1962, Oman was a very underdeveloped country. Sultan Said bin Taimur, an absolute ruler under British control, had outlawed almost all technological development and relied on British support to maintain the rudimentary functions of the state. Dhofar itself was a dependency of Oman but was cultural and linguistically distinct from Oman proper. In 1962 a dissatisfied tribal leader, Musallam bin Nufl (Mussalim bin Nafl), formed the  Dhofar Liberation Front (DLF) and obtained arms and vehicles from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia and Oman had earlier clashed over ownership of the Buraimi Oasis, and the Saudis had already supported two failed insurrections in the Jebel Akhdar in the interior of Oman in 1957–59. The DLF also received support from Imam Ghalib Bin Ali, the exiled Imam of Oman, who had led these earlier revolts.

Bin Nufl and his men made an epic crossing of the Empty Quarter to reach Dhofar. As early as December 1962, Bin Nufl's guerrilla band performed sabotage operations on the British air base at Salalah and ambushed oil industry vehicles; however, they then withdrew, having been sent by Saudi Arabia to Iraq for more guerrilla training. From 1964 the DLF began a campaign of hit-and-run attacks on oil company installations and government posts. Many of the DLF were trained former soldiers of the Sultan of Oman's Armed Forces (SAF), or of the Trucial Oman Scouts in the United Arab Emirates. The Sultan had relied on the Dhofar Force, a locally recruited irregular unit of only 60 men, to maintain order in the region. In April 1966, members of this unit attempted to assassinate the Sultan. This event apparently changed the nature of the conflict. The Sultan retired to his palace in Salalah, never to be seen in public again.

Everything in Moscow is so huge! Grand, wide streets with elaborate buildings, such as Stalin's seven sisters skyscrapers. Some people believe that things were intentionally built so spectacularly as a symbol of the communist states power and ability to provide it's people. Given that this one has an American capitalistic KFC in the foreground, it's really a symbol of how things have changed over the last 20 years.

One of Ukraine’s most famous sites - opened by Brezhnev in 1981 - there is ongoing debate about whether to remove the State Emblem of the Soviet Union from the shield of the Motherland Monument as part of their decommunization process.

4th century church St. George built by Romans is the oldest structure that is preserved to the present day Bulgaria. It's surrounded by a communist building which is also the Presidential palace of Bulgaria. I wonder what Bulgaria did to prevent from communists destroying this church. Mongolians could have used their strategy and preserved many beautiful and peaceful Buddhist temples we had before...#ancientcities #sofiacity #sofiacitybulgaria #churches #communisthistory #buddhisttemple #freesofiatour #preserveculture
