The Romanian Revolution – 22 years ago

I have been a participant in the historical watershed event that affected Romania in December 1989, which led to the violent overthrow of the communist dictatorship and paved the way to the first hesitant steps toward democracy after a 42 year hiatus since King Michael was forced to abdicate on 30 December 1947. Bellow are two of my articles on subjects related to the Romanian Revolution, published previously on this blog; just click the image to access the relevant article:
