Crucified Again—To the Victims of Communism in Exile from Czechoslovakia K-231

Artist: Josef Randa

Donated by the Czech Republic to Gatineau. The unveiling in May 2002 was attended by His Excellency Ambassador Vladimir Kotzy and Mayor Yves Ducharme.

The idea of erecting a monument to the victims of communism originated with former political prisoners, members of the Club 231 (K-231) organization in exile. This sculpture is a replica of the monument unveiled on July 2, 1989 in Masaryktown (Toronto's Czech Centre). More than a simple headstone—which the victims of the communist regime were once denied—it is a message to the conscience of the murderers who killed in the name of ideology, and a call to the free world to see the true face of communism.
