Summary/Abstract: The biographical dictionary is an essential instrument for the analysis of the dinamics and the forms of the repressive system. Along with the collections of documents, studies and the legislative corpus, the biographical dictionary appeared as a need to establish the identity of the victims as well as the coordinators of the repression. It also represents a useful source for the research of the history of the repressive mechanisms of the Romanian Communist regime. The biographical dictionary has five main characteristics: stands on a number of edited or oral sources; it has a pattern format which establish a predictable character; it has a regional or professional determination; it is circumscribed to a certain period of time and has a specific stylistic mark.
