“Ramnicu Sarat – Inchisoarea Tacerii (1945-1963)” exhibition opens at Sutu Palace

The Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile (IICCMER), in partnership with the National Council for the Study of Securitate Archives (CNSAS), the “Corneliu Coposu” Foundation, the National Archives and the Union of Architects of Romania, organizes the exhibition “Ramnicu Sarat – Inchisoarea Tacerii (1945-1963)” (Ramnicu Sarat – The Silent Prison, 1945-1963), to open today, starting 5pm, in the yard of the Museum of the City of Bucharest (the Sutu Palace), a release by IICCMER informs.

The former Ramnicu Sarat prison is now a record of the communist repressive regime, long after its victims are gone. The historic significance of the old prison becomes a means of stirring collective memory back to life, a means to re-enact the past for the young generations.

Using a three-dimensional open-air construction, a curatorial concept belonging to Irina Hasnas Hubbard, the exhibition presents aspects from the history of prisons in the communist era. It reconstructs aspects of daily life in the prisons (inside regulations, food, punishments, means of communication, medical treatment, isolation), as well as the portraits of some of the inmates.

The exhibition is running until June 17 and was organized with the support of the “Konrad Adenauer” Foundation, the Romanian Cultural Institute, the Pro-Patrimonio Foundation and RPER-Rencontre du Patrimoine Europe-Roumanie.
