On December 18, 2017 passed away Arseny Roginsky, the Chairman of the Board of the International Memorial Society.
He had been fighting for historical truth and Human Rights years before the foundation of the MEMORIAL movement and paid for this fight by arrest and detention. Until his very last days, Roginsky kept the fight – the work of MEMORIAL could not take place without him.
MEMORIAL without Roginsky is unimaginable. In our mind he will stay with us forever.
