The Poles celebrate the year 1989 in Bucharest

“We started it, you closed it” is the slogan of the campaign organized by the Polish Institute from Romania. Posters with Lenin and Stalin have appeared again in Bucharest. No, communism has not returned. There is a campaign which marks the 20 years which have passed since the fall of communism, reads an article published by ‘Adevarul.’


“We have chosen Bucharest symbolically. The campaign is meant to mark 20 years since the events which occurred in Central Europe in 1989, to remind the Romanian people their importance and to highlight the community of interests between Romania and Poland in this context. The title of the campaign was chosen subject to chronological considerations – in Poland there were the first events in which the right to freedom was claimed, the wave being closed in December 1989, in Romania,” said Jaroslaw Godun, director of the Polish Institute from Bucharest, which organizes the event. Jaroslaw Godun remembers that in the days of the Romanian Revolution, the people from Poland gathered funds for our country, and on the fence of the Embassy of the Romanian Socialist Republic from Warsaw there was a big poster reading “Free Romania!” Actually, solidarity is another important message that this Polish campaign from Bucharest wants to convey.
