Die rumänische Revolution von 1989 war eine Kette von Demonstrationen, Unruhen und blutigen Kämpfen, die vom 16. bis zum 27. Dezember 1989 in Timișoara, Bukarest und anderen rumänischen Städten stattfand. Sie führte zum Sturz und zur Hinrichtung des rumänischen Diktators Nicolae Ceaușescu und seiner Frau Elena Ceaușescu und zum Ende des realsozialistischen Systems in Rumänien.
The Romanian Revolution (Romanian: Revoluția Română) was a series of riots and protests in Romania in December 1989. These were part of the Revolutions of 1989 that occurred in several Warsaw Pact countries. The Romanian Revolution started in the city of Timișoara and soon spread throughout the country. It ultimately resulted in the violent overthrow and execution of longtime President of Romania Nicolae Ceaușescu, and the end of the Socialist Republic of Romania. It was the last ouster of a Communist regime in a Warsaw Pact country during the events of 1989, and the only one that forcibly overthrew the country's government and resulted in the death of its leader as well as of many of the protesters.
Riots and street violence and murder in several Romanian cities over the course of roughly a week led the Romanian dictator to abandon power and flee Bucharest with his wife, Deputy Prime Minister Elena Ceaușescu. Captured in Târgoviște, they were tried in a show trial by a military tribunal on charges of genocide, damage to the national economy and abuse of power to execute military actions against the Romanian people. They were found guilty of all charges, and immediately executed on Christmas Day 1989, becoming the last persons ever condemned to death and executed in Romania.
In the wake of the revolution, 1,104 people died, 162 of these occurring in the protests that took place from 16 to 22 December 1989 and brought an end to the Ceaușescu regime and the remaining 942 in the riots before the seizure of power by a new political structure, the National Salvation Front. Most deaths occurred in cities such as Timișoara, Bucharest, Sibiu and Arad. The number of injured reached 3,352, of which 1,107 are for the period in which Ceaușescu still held power, and the remaining 2,245 are for the period after the seizure of power by the National Salvation Front.

Hello Wolfgang, It is kind of simple monument or rather just cross made by someone in rather primitive way. You found interesting placfe. Of course, I remember well this revolution and the very fast trial and execution. And also the view of the corpses in TV. Later Saddam, Kadafi and others had found such fate they deserved, they think they will rule forever but the end comes finally.
Warm regrads Malgo

A bit of extra caring and this humble memorial would looks with a bit of dignity, Wolfgang.
Nicely spotted and taken its photo, "Memoria" is understood in any language.
