How the uprising against Nicolae Ceausescu began.

Zsolt is interviewed by James Bartholomew, the director of the Museum of Communist Terror.

The 1989 revolt against the communist regimes dominated by Ceauşescu in Romania began with an uprising in a city called Timisoara. But how did the Timisoara uprising begin?

This is the remarkable story of how one pastor set off a chain of events that led to the downfall of a communist dictator. Zsolt Szilagyi, who was a witness and participant in these events, tells the story.

Zsolt also describes how people then had to be on their guard against informers and agents provocateurs.

This was an online Zoom event which took place on April 6th 2021.
