Summary/Abstract: The interview given by Mr. Ioan Şerbănescu is a rare introspection about the places that helped shape his personality, be it the shtetl of Onești, the town of Târgu Ocna, the academic environment in Bucharest and the Schuller home during his time as a student, or the university environment during the communist period. His return to the community, in the 1990s, at the Center for the Study of the History of the Jews in Romania (CSIER), is considered a duty: he felt an inner need to write about the Holocaust and the interwar period. In fact, his last paper published at CSIER focuses on the interwar period and is considered his moral testament.
