The men who shot the Ceausescus

Interviewed here. Warning: graphic details.

“I was more of a communist. I believed in [Ceausescu’s] speeches, in his texts, in his congresses. I was his product. In a way, I was driven by a proletarian wrath. If I’m not wrong, the entire trial had this character. We were angry at the system and not at the man Ceausescu. Anyway, I wouldn’t do this [again], and I wouldn’t wish such an experience on anyone. To take someone’s life violates biblical teachings. We’ve already been booed, cursed for what we did on the holy day of Christmas. Every Christmas, you can be sure that we’re not doing OK. Not even on 26 January. [Ceausescu’s birthday]. I wouldn’t do it again.”
