The Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile (IICCMER), in partnership with the Ministry of National Education and Scientific Research and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), launches a new national creation contest entitled “What communism meant for your family”, addressed to students in grades IX-XII.

The creation contest aims at developing Romanian youth’s mechanisms of personal reflection and critical thinking through the recuperation of the traumatic memory of the recent past. This initiative encourages the inter-generational dialogue by inviting young people to adopt an unconventional, participative approach, that of recuperating the history of the Romanian family from the second half of the past century.
