The discussions focused on the need of establishing a mutual plan, supported by all the Romanian public figures, regarding the necessity of preserving the memory of the totalitarian period, as well as the urgency of creating a Museum of Communism a quarter of a century after the historical failure of the communist regime.

For Mr. Sven-Joachim Irmer, main partner of the Institute, this was the first visit of this kind after the assignment of the new Executive President of IICCMER.
