Analele Sighet (Sighet Annals) is the first and undoubtedly the most discerning and original collection that the International Centre for Studies into Communism edited during those troubled years at the very beginning, when the Sighet Memorial was only being established, looking to settle in the prison’s building, which was under reconstruction. We were four-five people on the organizing team, in contrast to the numerous participants who attended the annual symposia (between 200 and 300, let alone the hundreds of people in the audience, who arrived unannounced from all directions). Covering the 650 kilometres from Bucharest meant travelling via rented buses or overfilled trains for which additional wagons had to be obtained directly from the Ministry of Transportation. We ordered special buses and took care of the visa arrangements for those travelling from Chișinău or Cernăuți. Guests coming from England, France, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Norway and so many other countries had to be welcomed at the airport and were then driven to Bucharest’s North Railway Station, from where they continued their voyage by train for 12-13 hours to Sighet. Newcomers crowded in the hotel, which was always undergoing repairs, in the city centre, three or four people in one room. The Memorial’s conference room was still under construction, so we rented one or even two rooms in the city. The speaking time was limited to ten minutes to allow all registered participants to take the floor during the 2 or 3 days of the symposia. The microphone was guarded by two yellow lamps, which would go on ten seconds before the sound was cut off. Those who ignored this time allocation system were interrupted by the moderator, who asked for their manuscript to have it published entirely. However, authors would often send their final, revised and extended papers weeks or even several months later, which made the editor’s work very challenging. How do we explain the fact that so many people were extraordinarily drawn to Sighet? Romania – a country they knew nothing about expect for that it had gone through a televised revolution, but also through a bloody mineriad – was in itself an attraction for foreigners. At the same time, there was still no programme in Romania meant to reconstruct recent history. Hundreds of people came to Sighet as if they were on a pilgrimage to a sacred site. They were former political prisoners, former deportees, historians and scholars who had themselves gone through hard times and prison, diligent students and young people without access to the archives, but with an inner drive to gain access to them, which no longer exists today; and finally, historians coming from neighbouring or Western countries. Some were storytellers, other researchers. Some carried encouraging messages from great personalities of the world, others were accompanied by alumni who were as passionate as ours. Their names are all included in an enclosed list. As one can see, they weren’t few in number for the ten years in which the symposia were organized.

Over a decade, ten volumes, each bearing a number and a title, resulted from the transcription of these symposia. Covering three-four hundred pages at the beginning, then more, and then many more, as we were approaching the present and the history of daily life was fresher in our memory. In the end, in 2003, we had reached a total number of 7388 pages, and many congratulated us for having created a true compendium, like an atoll of remembrance in a sea of forgetfulness. It is true that the archives were meanwhile beginning to open, and the confessional part of the books was increasingly better armed with complementary documents. These ten volumes are the pillars that gave the museum, and implicitly the Sighet Memorial, strength and duration. Remembering them over the years will show us where we came from and where we are now. I particularly insisted on how one of the collections was brought about – namely Sighet Annals – because it crystallises the way in which the Memorial was born and grew over the years. A sort of pathetic effort was perpetuated through the creation of a data base, the gathering of never before published documents, the publication of books, and, at the same time, the development of the sixty exhibition rooms. I met hundreds of people at the symposia, they shared their stories with me; their coming together brought about summaries, the summaries led to conclusions.
