FM Baconschi promises a museum of the Communist Dictatorship

Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi claims, in a message dedicated to the former Communist holiday of August 23, posted on the internet site of the Christian-Democratic Foundation, that he wants to make possible the commemoration of the victims of communism, one or two years from now, by opening the National Museum of Communist Dictatorship in Bucharest.

“While some Romanians fall prey to guilty nostalgia and regret the Communist parades of August 23, Europe commemorates today the victims of Stalinism and Nazism,” reads the message. According to Baconschi, “despite the prudish attitude of Europe, meant to put at ease the sensitivities of Communists, Trotskists and other leftists, (…) we must hail this coincidence of dates and mark this European day against totalitarianism.”  “(…) I wish that, one or two years from now, we will be able to commemorate the victims of communism by opening the National Museum of Communist Dictatorship in the capital of the country,” the minister concluded.
