Package Itinerary

After the fall of the Berlin wall, the Eastern European countries that were victims of the "Red Terror" and the socialism imposed by soviets condemned the communism and the dictatorship. The relocation of some nations and groups of people from their places of origin to Siberia was conceived as a state policy that produced an ethical revolution where the good and the evil, the vice, and the virtue were drastically reassessed.

The theories of Stalin and his tendency to „purge" the unreliable elements at the border with the East and West of the USSR, initiated massive waves of deportations, which led to the partial extermination of the population from Czechoslovakia, Austria, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, North Bucovina, Bessarabia, and Hertza now the republic of Moldova.

During this tour, we will try to present detailed facts about why and how the people from Bessarabia were imprisoned from their homes and brought to the railway stations, and deported to Siberia. We managed to uncover the information hidden in secret files and the testimonies of those people who experienced firsthand the wrath of Stalinist repression.
