Format: Hardcover
'Children of Ceausescu' is a harrowing account, of the after effects, of Nicholae Ceausescu's regime. The forward is written by Herta Muller, herself a teacher in Romania, before fleeing the country in 1987. Herta's account of harrassment by the securitate, and enforcement of ludicrious state laws, outline the horrors imposed on so many Romanian people.
Kent Kilch, photographer, needs no words. His photographs enable the reader to clearly see the pain and suffering inflicted on the innocent children of Ceausescu. Children born into poverty stricken families trying to meet the quota, of 5 children per family, set by the government. Children infected by the HIV virus - that we are led to believe was merely through infected blood transfusions. The outcome is children who have the choice of living on the streets, or being forced to endure an empty life in orphanages.
The pictures are harrowing, the reality is worse. The stark black and white photographs, highlight the anguish and emptiness the children have tolerated. Despite this, there are some factfiles on specific children, which provide a real of ray of sunshine! They really go some way to showing how much positive work is being done in Romania, by charitable organisations........all in attempt to undo the bad work done by Ceausescu.
