From University to Prison
Of the numerous intellectuals arrested after the Communist takeover of Romania, one was a renowned psychologist named Nicolae Margineanu. At the height of his professional career, this respected academic was arrested, subject to a show-trial and sentenced to 25 years in a brutal prison. His personal life and career were irreversibly damaged, and his wife and children suffered greatly.
This documentary tells his story and details the ruthless repression of thought under the totalitarian regime in Romania. Margineanu's story is just one example of among thousands of the regime's efforts to repress freedom and systematically destroy normal life in Romania. This story stands as an important record of the atrocities of Communism as well as a testament to the strength of the human spirit to triumph over oppression.
