I would like to invite you to a conference in Bucharest on the subject of King Michael’s exile, based on documents that I unearthed in the ‘Securitate’ (Romanian communist secret police) archives:
“Files, Agents and Codes. The King’s Exile. Revelations from the Securitate Archives”
The event is organised by the National History Museum of Romania and is scheduled to take place on Thursday 17 July 2014, at 1 pm (entrance B, near Stavropoleos church, Postei street)
The Conference is envisaged as an educational effort to promoting the understanding of Romania’s recent history as reflected in formerly secret documents, sources revealing unexpected facets of history, of King Michael’s exile and the Romanian emigration after 1947. A multitude of files on individuals and also on a series of exile organizations, surveyed and penetrated by the communist services, complete the puzzle of that important page of the struggle against the dictatorship unfurled on the western side of the Iron Curtain. The conference will detail and analyse how their efforts were uncovered and tackled by agents of the communist state.
Thursday 17 of July 2014, 1 pm at The National History Museum of Romania, Bucharest, str. Postei, near Stavropoleos church/ Entrance B, second floor, ‘Mihai Viteazul’ conference room). The conference language is Romanian.
