Heart wrenching memorial to the odious workings of the communists Aug 26, 2010
The Memorial to the Victims of Communism and Resistance [full title] is the first museum in Romania dedicated to the victims of communism. Located in the former maximum-security prison where the entire Romanian intelligentsia of the inter-war period was locked, murdered and tortured, the Memorial presents powerful imagery, interesting historical facts about communism's rise behind the Iron Curtain, but most of all the identities, lives and fates of the perpetrators and their victims.

A true pilgrimage site is the cell where Iuliu Maniu, one of Romania's greatest democratic politicians of the Great Union has died. In the garden you can see a work of art illustrating the follies of communism. There is also an underground prayer and meditation site. A must-see for anyone passing by and any serious student of the European East.
