European Institute on Communist Oppression is an educational and human rights non-profit organization.
The purpose of the EIOCO is to educate generations about the true character of the totalitarian system which is communism.
Communism promised equality but in practice meant immense inequality between a politically privileged elite (the communist party top) and the mass of the people, who were severely repressed. Communism caused more than hundred million deaths, countless deportations, persecutions, pain, suffering, hunger, fear, destroyed lives of many generations.
The Institute focuses on gathering and sharing the knowledge about the violation by communist rule of human rights as laid down in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the ECHR, about the nature and functioning of communism as a totalitarian system and communist oppression in practice.
