About us

The Institute for the investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile (IICCMER) is a governmental structure established in 2005 under the coordination of the Prime Minister. Its role consists, first of all, of managing and scientifically analyzing the totalitarian period and its consequences. Secondly, IICCMER supports the creation and implementation of educational tools to a memorial end, thus contributing to the articulation of the context in which the values and fundamental rights be accepted by our post-totalitarian society. Last but not least, the Institute gathers, archives and publishes documents related to the memory of the Romanian exile.
