Growing up in a communist country
A disturbing read. The Ceausescus may be gone, but Romania’s Communist past hasn’t passed with them.
Facing up to the past, Romania is trying to recover, to be again what it was before 1945. A beautiful, intelligent country with a capital – Bucharest – called Little Paris! But the old and the new is fighting. I am still young and my generation has an open mind to open borders and chooses democracy.
The older generation, are still stuck in the past, with an old mentality, an obedient mentality, and still chooses old structures of a Communist heritage.
