Stalin bust has Virginia town red-faced
Communist dictator deemed unworthy of D-Day recognition
“This is not a WWII memorial,” Mr. Edwards said. “This is a D-Day memorial. If we focus on the fact of it being a D-Day memorial, then there is … hardly any justification whatsoever” for Stalin being there.
“To have his bust there, it’s an icon in a way, and a bust is usually meant to say a symbol of respect or honor,” he said. “No matter what they do to explain that, it’s still going to put him on the same kind of level as the other leaders and their troops who were there at D-Day.”
The next step for protesters is to take the issue to their representatives in government, Mr. Edwards said. His foundation intends to “keep putting pressure” on senators and others in positions that have sway in the matter.
“It’s not going to blow over anytime soon,” said Mr. Altau. “This is something we don’t want to back down on because this is very important for us.”
