In the interval 24-26 February 2010, the International Conference Crimes of the Communist Regimes took place in Prague (The Czech Republic). The event was organised by the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes and partner institutions from the working group on the Platform of European Memory and Conscience.
The Conference aimed at presenting an overview of the crimes committed by the communist regimes behind the Iron Curtain, evaluating them from a legal point of view and searching for possible solutions to the situation today. The main purpose of the reunion was centered on the reconciliation within post-communist societies and a strengthened European integration across the former East-West divide.
The Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile was represented by Marius Oprea and Raluca Grosescu, coordinator of the Documentation and Reseach Office.
