Victims of political persecution commemorated

September 10 is the day to commemorate politically repressed people. On this day each year, a tribute is paid by the laying of a wreath at the monument for Repressed People.
Also, some activities are conducted, including issuing grants and nonrefundable aid to repressed people and their families.
D. Battulga, head of the Office of the President granting an allowanceto survivors of political repression

This year, it was decided to grant one-time cash allowance under the order of the head of the State Commission on Management and Organization Rehabilitation Political Repression (SCMORPR).
On September 6, D. Battulga, head of the Office of the President and a member of SCMORPR, granted the allowance to over 20 people including repressed G. Jamyan and B. Nyamdari and relatives of repressed people B. Chuluun and D. Javzan and children of the repressed D. Dulamsuren, D.Avirmed and J. Batjargal.
“The day to commemorate repressed people is September 19. We understand that wounds in your heart do not recover despite overcoming black days of the past. A total of Tgs 4.7 billion has been issued to repressed people, their relatives and children since approval of the law in 1996. The present multi-party system guarantees not to repeat the practices of these black days. In the end, I wish you all the best”.
Each year, Mongolia remembers those who suffered at the hands of bad leaders

Representing others, repressed G. Jamyan thanked for allowance and said, “Here, repressed people and relatives came. I would like to suggest two things for SCMORPR on behalf of hundreds of repressed people and their relatives. Some years ago, the Union of Politically Repressed People and SCMORPR submitted a resolution to Parliament. The resolution was about granting apartments, pensions and a one-time allowance to repressed people and their relatives. However, for many years the resolution has not been discussed by Parliament.
Therefore, we want this resolution be approved. G. Jambaldorj, a 25-year old woman who was a bank staff member and suffered severe modern repression was jailed for some years. Today, she lives in a tent-like dwelling in Tsagaan Davaa area. Thus, another request is hereby submitting for SCMORPR and the Mongol Bank authority to consider this woman and give her a home on the occasion of the day to commemorate repressed people.”
On September 7, SCMORPR and Union of Politically Repressed People co-organized a scientific conference entitled ‘Political repression in Mongolia’.
At the conference, N. Enkhbold, Deputy Parliament Speaker and head of SCMORPR, made the opening speech. He said, “The significance of the conference is to give true information on the cause of political repression that happened in Mongolia, its consequences, significance of rehabilitating repressed people, lessons, conclusion, prevention from political repression, and the establishment of favorable conditions for people to live peacefully”.
In his report, D. Olziibaatar, head of National Archives, tried to assess matters such as the cause of repression, truth and lies, objective and subjective sides, who is the guilty person, and why people were repressed with pure political purposes in Mongolia.
Lecturer and writer L. Purevdorj stressed that the word ‘repression’ is unable to completely describe origination of the happening, causes, natures and even consequences. He expressed his thoughts about how to name the tortures that happened in Mongolia in the years between 1921 and the 1950s.
Participants reported in detail, the types and forms of seizes, in-custody interrogation and tortures done during the repression period. They gave interesting reports about the State Baga Khural, which at that time was then the State ruling institute, the organization to prevent danger, how women and some high-ranking lamas suffered political repression, as well as studies on the armed protest of 1932 and Lkhumbe’s case.
Moreover, state cultural honored figure G. Purevbat expressed his position on how to recover the damage and reconstruct.
“In 1922, an incident enacted by Mongolia’s government was started with repressing some people including D. Bodoo with political intentions and some people such as S. Danzan in 1924. This deepened the so called case of the revolution’s oppositionist Japanese intelligence organization led by J. Lkhumbe in 1933. The repression was expanded with the number of cases of so called oppositionist groups like P. Genden and G. Demid, and reached its peak from 1937 to 1940,” reported Ch. Boldbaatar, a teacher of Mongolia’s Education University. He also introduced specific facts:“From 1930 to 1940, a total of 37,574 people were punished under the decision of a special commission and court. Of them, over 20,000 people were executed and more than 5,700 were jailed for different periods”. At the scientific conference, about 20 reports were heard and put in discussion.
