Summary/Abstract: Under the communist regime, the name of the act of August 23, 1944 underwent various transformations in official propaganda, but it was, however, permanently promoted as a great communist achievement. During the regime of Nicolae Ceaușescu, the act of August 23, 1944 underwent new metamorphoses and interpretations, in accordance with the new political orientations: the strengthening of the „independent line” of the party (started towards the end of Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej's leadership) continued as a form of protection of the interests of the PCR leadership in the face of Soviet interference. One of the magazines published during the Ceaușescu period, which had a special role in spreading the national-communist vision, was „Magazin istoric”. Moreover, approaching the act of August 23, 1944 in the pages of the „Magazin istoric” became, starting with the years 1970 - 1971, a way of manifesting the cult of personality of the communist leader. In fact, the act of August 23, 1944 was one of the favorite topics in the pages of the „Magazin istoric”, which has an existence that exceeds five decades.
