Goran Lindblad

Upon the publication of The Black Book of Communism in the Icelandic translation of Hannes H. Gissurarson, Goran Lindblad, former MEP from the Swedish Moderate Party, gave a talk in Reykjavik 31 August 2009. He discussed the declarations of the European Council in 2006 and of the European Parliament in 2009, for the need to disclose and to assess the crimes of communism and to remember its victims. The European Parliament has called for 23 August (the day when the non-aggression pact between Hitler and Stalin was signed in 1939) to be a European remembrance day for victims of totalitarian regimes. Bjorn Bjarnason, former Minister of Justice, chaired the meeting, and Jon Baldvin Hannibalsson, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, responded to Lindblad’s talk.
