    1. In 1945, an artist named Lena Constante collaborated with a major Romanian Communist figure s wife to create a puppet theater in Bucharest As a result, in January 1950 Lena was arrested, convicted of trumped up charges of espionage, and imprisoned for the next twelve years under miserable circumstances Her first eight years, spent in solitary confinement, are the subject of this memoir Lena writes modestly she claims to have no talent for writing, which is obviously untrue and without self pity [...]

    5. Evadarea tacuta si Evadarea imposibila , volumele Lenei Constante despre experienta sa carcerala, sunt cutremuratoare Despre frig, foame si frica Despre umilinte si torturi greu de imaginat, puse la cale de oameni impotriva altor oameni In Romania anilor 50 60.Dar si despre prietenie si solidaritate, despre capacitatea spiritului de a se ridica deasupra tuturor chinurilor trupului si de a evada in ciuda tuturor oprelistilor Si despre puterea povestilor de a tamadui, metoda care a salvat multe su [...]

    6. Mi se face pielea de gaina si acum cand ma gandesc M a impresionat forta ei psihica si fizica si puterea de a lupta dupa ani si ani Mereu cu idei noi de supravietuire si modalitati de a evita dementa ,nebunia pe care majoritatea o capatau daca erau supusi acelor torturi inimaginabile.Recomand aceasta carte tuturor Merita aflat prin ce au trecut parintii, bunicii sau strabunicii nostri si sa invatam de la ei Din pacate istoria se repeta, dar sper ca aceaste evenimentesa fie exceptii.

    7. Good book, crazy story Not sure i would recommend it, but it sure taught me about the corruption and injustice of Romania especially within the justice system.
