OPEN AIR MUSEUM

IN MEMORY OF VICTIMS OF POLITICAL REPRESSIONS

It is impossible and immoral to assess the differences in the intensity of the tragic fate of a human being or a nation, since reason and soul suffer with the same intensity within the politically imprisoned, deported or refugees. The Bolshevik insanity has totally disrupted (due to an ideologist fiction) the physical and spiritual essence of millions of people, let alone the morality and spirituality for which the Communists had no clear demarcation between good and bad. An big part of humanity was thrown into exile (if not killed, starved, arrested or deported). In an attempt to avoid a war with the insane Soviets, the Romanian government gives up a part of its territory (28 June 1940), thereby giving raise to a crisis, when in a few days, hundreds of thousands of natives from Bukovina and Bessarabia fled, leaving behind their properties and homes. The number of refugees to Romania, who were forced to leave their homes and homeland before the outbreak of the war and its end in 1945, was about 800,000 men, women, children and old people. If we take into account that refugees were part of 3,776,000 of natives, we will understand the dimensions of the physical exodus and brain drain from the territories occupied by the Soviets. The fate of separated families due to swift flee remained unknown for decades because of the imposed "iron curtain". Taking into account the specific concept of the museum, i.e. to represent historical events of political repression in their devastating magnitude, the situation of refugee from other countries (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland) will be also depicted in this module, on panels with photographs, and through symbolic poems, music and paintings. In this respect, professional curators from the above mentioned countries will be consulted during the construction of the museum, who have museums and experience in building them.
