Masonic Records held by the KGB revealed
A new revealing look at the history of Freemasonry will be presented at an International Conference by the Canonbury Masonic Research Center in London England on October 30-31, 2010.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Patricia Kennedy Grimstead, of Harvard University, will present a lecture entitled "War on Freemasons: the fate of the Nazi and Soviet seized books and archives." The lecture will provide an overview of the millions of Masonic documents orginally stolen from the Masonic lodges by the Nazis during World War Two. Then during the Sack of Berlin, the documents were transported by the forerunner of the Soviet KGB and placed into the archives in Moscow.

This is the start of the news that I have been waiting to hear for some time. We don't really know how many Freemasons were sent to the Nazi Concentration Camps or who they were. Perhaps this will be the start of the flow of such information many of us have been waiting for.
I wish I could attend this conference.
