It’s almost impossible to wrap your head around this fact: in the past 100 years, historians estimate that 100 million people worldwide perished under the evil, heavy hand of communism.

People often ask when planning a trip to Washington, D.C. what museums and buildings they should visit for a well-rounded family trip.
