In memoriam

Romania 2007 (15) 191

This marker in Piata Mare marks the spot where the first person was killed during the revolution of December 1989. It reads: “On this spot the first victim fell in December 1989”. Romania’s revolution saw a lot more bloodshed than the other revolutions which happened across central and eastern Europe at the end of 1989, which were mostly peaceful.
