Martyred in the USSR – Militant Atheism in the former Soviet Union

Seems an interesting and worthy project, I hope it gets the funding it needs.

Martyred in the USSR is a documentary about militant atheism in the former Soviet Union. It tells the personal, emotional and horrific story of what people went through simply because they chose to cling to their faith, even at the risk of death. It did not matter what religion you practiced, if you believed in God in the USSR you were persecuted, and persecuted brutally. From 1917 to 1990 people of faith were shot, executed, thrown in the gulag and left to die because the Soviet Government hated religion. What makes this story extremely important is that the new generation in Russia knows nothing about their past and will deny that the brutality ever happened.

  1. This is a great article! Martyred in the USSR should be made in order to educate the public about the atrocities that occurred under the Marxist-Leninist atheism of the Soviet Union. Few people realize that over 25 million believers perished from the antireligious violence which occurred in many atheist states in the 20th Century. This fact puts to shame modern militant atheists, such as Richard Dawkins, who seek to exterminate religion of all flavours, and its adherents by showing the harm that can occur from the spreading of militant atheist ideology.
