Until the end of October, the public can support twenty brave survivors on the Internet who found the courage to stand up to communist totalitarianism and who have been nominated for the prestigious European Memory of Nations Awards this year. These include, for example, Kornel Morawiecki, Polish dissident and founder of Fighting Solidarity, which advocated for the restoration of the independence of Poland and the unification of Germany in the eighties, the Hungarian priest Károly Olofsson priest who did not abandon his priestly duties, even after the 10 years he spent in the Soviet Gulag, the East German priest Rainer Eppelmann, whose activities so bothered the Stasi secret service that it attempted to assassinate him two times, or the Slovak politician Jaroslav Fabok who also experienced a communist prison as a German prisoner of war, where he wandered soon after the coup in 1948.
