For those who were not born or raised under dictatorship, the actual meeting with the remains of the communist concentration camps represents an impressive experience.

The Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile, in partnership with the National Council for the Studying of the Securitate Archives (CNSAS), the “Corneliu Coposu” Foundation, the National Archives of Romania and the Architects’ Chamber of Romania, organised the opening of the exhibition Râmnicu Sărat – The Prison of Silence (1945-1963).

The exhibition was open to visitors in the interval 7-17 June 2011, at the Museum of the City of Bucharest – The Suţu Palace.

The event was organised with the support of the “Konrad Adenauer” Foundation, the Romanian Cultural Institute, the “Pro-Patrimonio” Foundation and the RPER-Rencontre du Patrimoine Europe-Roumanie.
