Romania marks Ceausescu’s fall

Twenty years after Communist regime’s overthrow, Romania is yet to get over its dark past.


The people of Romania are marking twenty years since the overthrow of Nicolae Ceaucescu’s communist leadership.

Their nation was the last of all eastern European countries to experience an anti-Communist revolution. It was also the only one marked by bloodshed.

Ceausescu and his wife were executed on Christmas day in 1989, following a hasty military trial.

Al Jazeera’s Barnaby Phillips travelled to Bucharest to find out how much of Ceaucescu’s legacy pervades Romanian society today.
