Thus, former Communist leaders are invited to speak about the Communist regime in Romania but also of its relations with the socialist countries and democratic states. Ion Coman, former Minister of National Defence in 1976-1980 was our first guest on the May 17th, 2007, to present his testimony about the period in which he was active in political and military areas. His lecture offered information on the Timişoara events and the relationship within Romanian Communist Party.
