www.ceausescu.org is a website that emerged from the fact that its initiators tried to find out more about the so called "Golden Epoch" of Romania under Ceausescu’s rule.
The topic is very subtle and though Ceausescu’s "achievements" are still present all over Romania and very much still shape the countries appearance till today, the subject itself is widely avoided. Hence it is not a simple task to collect related material. The scope of this site is to make information and material that has been found by us and/or provided to us by our users, accessible to the wide interested public over the global Internet.
Update, December 2006: The pressure onto Romania grows w. their will to enter the European Union. This made them FINALLY understand, that they must face their past. Two weeks before the country's EU accession, President Traian Basescu presented a 650-page report that charges the former communist regime. On December 18th 2006 he declared the country is responsible for the deeds of the former communist system. More important for us, Commission Chairman Vladimir Tismaneanu said: "For 16 years, Romania has avoided confronting her communist past, a procrastination which has resulted in the hegemony of lies and mystification. This, in turn, has created a climate of frustration and anger, manipulated by demagogues. Transparency is the only way a democratic political culture can be established" he added. Bravo!
