The dark side of the Romanian communism
In Sighetu Marmatiei we discovered two things: Museum of Arrested Thought and placinta (turnovers with potatoes, cabbage or chocolate!). The prison was closed in 1974 but between 1948 and 1952 180 members of Romania|s academic and government elite were imprisoned there. It’s quite a lot of documentation in every former cell about communist time, life, political repressions, terror and finally the development of freedom. (More information under: memorialsighet.ro)
In the courtyard: kind of cave with memorial and bronze sculptures looking into wall.
