Summary/Abstract: The article presents three important moments of the Rumanian secret political policy and information system history. It is usually spoken about the crimes committed by the Securitate, especially in the period of the Soviet Union military occupation (1944-1958). The first moment related is about the creation of the Securitate by the Soviets and shows nominally the most important leaders of the institution, which were especially selected from the ethnical minorities groups. Most of them were Jews. In the same time it is related about the very important role of the Soviet counselors. The second part of the article presents the moment of the Securitate’s history in which the Rumanian national political movement brought especially Rumanians in Securitate and begin the process of elimination the Jews and other ethnic minorities from the institution. In the last part of the article, it is shown how the Securitate and Rumania catch up as an enemy of the Soviet Union. After many years of preparations, in closely cooperation with the most important Occidental states, Soviet Union succeed in to change the Rumanian political system and the Ceausescu’s independent policy.
