The Summer University program aims at helping students acquire a better knowledge of the communist past, either through direct witnesses of the repression or through lecturers and researchers involved in the study of the communist crimes in Romania.

The third edition of the Summer University took place in Râmnicu Sărat in the interval 23-31 August 2009 and was attended by 25 people. The target group was represented by 19-27 year olds, students and graduates of faculties of history, political science, sociology, journalism, letters and law from universities in Romania and the Republic of Moldova.

The Summer University had the support of Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
