Romanian Revolution testimonies

“We were afraid, it was something transmitted from one person to another. It was a great tension in the streets. We were afraid but something kept us going. I saw blood, human brains… I saw a man ran over by a tank. Imagine that he was taken away by other people and his legs waved like a scarf, as if he didn’t have any bones left. I saw people killed by trucks… I saw people shut dead, 10-15 bodies…”

Egmont Puscasu, Gavroche of the Romanian Revolution, he was 15 years old in December 1989.

“Freedom must be won, it is not something one takes for granted. One is free if he behaves as a free man and wants to remain a free man”
Dan Culcer, Romanian writer
