The exhibition was organised by the International Centre for Studies about Communism, part of the Sighet Memorial, in 2006.
Created by Romulus Rusan, the exhibition is part of the international “History after the Fall” project, financed by the European Comission through its “Culture 2000” programme. The partners of the Civic Academy and Sighet Memorial in this project were the “Hannah Arendt” Institute in Dresden, the Institute of Contemporary History in Prague, the Open Society Archive in Budapest, Karta in Warsaw, and the Romanian Institute of Recent History in Bucharest.
The exhibition has three versions, in French, English, and Romanian. The Romanian language version was inaugurated at Sighet in July 2006 and has become a permanent exhibition in the Memorial Museum.
