  1. Ana Bărbulescu, ”Identity Construction and Consonant Memories: the Holocaust or the Exquisiteness of the Dacians?” in Holocaust. Studies and Research, vol. V, nr. 1(6)/ 2013;

Abstract: The study I propose turns toward Holocaust denial from the perspective offered by the sociology of knowledge, depicting our attitude toward the tragedy of the Romanian Jews as part of the process of social construction that characterizes any domain of the social world. Starting from here and according to the approach I propose, any attitude regarding Romania’s participation to the extermination of hundreds of thousands of Jews during the Second World War should by analysed in correlation with the identity model constructed for the Romanian people while this identity model is considered to be strongly determined by the mnemonic narrative we accept as historical truth.

  1. Alexandru Climescu, “Mapping public memory: counterpublics, the state and the Holocaust in Romania” in Holocaust. Studies and Research, vol. V, nr. 1(6)/2013;

Abstract: This study explores the concept of public memory by resorting to the private-public dichotomy as an analytical framework of political theory. Based on empirical evidence regarding the recollection of the Holocaust in Romania, it highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the public-private separation, as conceived by the liberal and public sphere models, with regard to the analysis of competing accounts of the past. Furthermore, drawing on subsequent critiques of the habermasian theory of public sphere, this study discusses the memory work of marginalized publics and their counterdiscourses to the official Holocaust memory.

Abstract: The Romanian Academy (and much of the country's historical establishment) is packed with Holocaust deniers and trivializers, many of whom indulge in Holocaust obfuscation against the background of the post-Communist “competitive martyrdom” between the victims of the Holocaust and the Gulag. Quite a few of these deniers and trivializers are also former secret police informers. On closer examination, however, it turns out that explaining the reluctance to face the country's “dark past” as being the independent variable resultant of the post “Romanianization” of the Communist Party and its Securitate is a partial explanation at best. A substantially more convincing one might be provided by scrutinizing the phenomenon as the product of post-mnemonic cultural traumas.

  1. Alexandru Florian, ”The public memory and the traps of the justice acts”, Sfera Politicii no. 180-191, pp. 220-243;

Abstract: In 1953, Radu Dinulescu, former chief of the 2nd Section within the General Staff of the Romanian Army, was convicted to 15 years of forced labor and 10 years of civic degradation. He was found guilty of several counts among which the involvement in the organization of the Iași Pogrom and the deportation of Jews. After several developments  of the legal situation under the incidence of the political, the Supreme Court of Justice  acquited him of war crimes in 1998.

  1. Ana Bărbulescu, ”Târgu-Jiu Camp – Between History and Memory” in Holocaust. Studies and research, vol. VI, no. 1(7)/2014, pp. 9-29;

Abstract: Y.H. Yerushalmi draws attention on the selectiveness that characterizes any mnemonic narrative, emphasizing the fact that certain memories live on while “the rest are winnowed out, repressed or simply discarded by a process of natural selection which the historian, uninvited disturbs and reverse”2 . Although I am not a historian, I will turn toward Târgu-Jiu camp from the perspective of these inconsistencies that seems to exist between history and memory, between the way things happened and the way they are remembered.

  1. Alexandru Climescu, ”Post-transitional injustice. The acquittal of Holocaust perpetrators in post-communist Romania”, Holocaust. Studies and Research, no. 1 (7) / 2014, pp. 145-157;

Abstract: This article examines the trials of two Romanian officers who were convicted for war crimes during the communist regime and, eventually, acquitted by the Supreme Court of Romania during the post-communist period. Our aim is to highlight the factors that made the acquittal decisions possible and evaluate their impact on the Holocaust public memory

  1. Ana Bărbulescu, ”Discovering the Holocaust in our Past: Competing Memories in Post-Communist Romanian Textbooks” in Holocaust Studies: A Journal of Culture and History, 21:3 /2015, pp. 139-156;

Abstract: The article looks at the way the Holocaust of the Romanian Jews has been reconstructed in Romanian history textbooks published since 1989, tracing the inconsistency that seems to exist between history and memory and explaining this inconsistency using Festinger’s theory of cognitive dissonance. The approach is structuralist and regards the memory of the Holocaust as being dependent on the identity narrative acknowledged for the Romanian people. The research, conducted in a qualitative manner, proves that distortion of the historical facts begins to operate when the Romanian people’s identity narrative is placed within the paradigm of a continuous reading of history.

  1. George Voicu, ”Post-communist Romania’s leading public intellectuals and the Holocaust” in Holocaust. Studii și cercetări, no. 1 (8) / 2015;

Abstract: Starting from the premise that the leading Romanian public intellectuals, widely perceived as representing the very intellectual elite of the country, have a major impact on the public opinion, the present study analyzes the positions and attitudes expressed by the latter – in books, articles, interviews, statements, etc. – with regards to the Holocaust. The study finds that there is a strong connection between the many distortions in the public image over the tragedy experienced by Jews during World War 2 and the opinions expressed by the aforementioned intellectuals.

  1. Alexandru Climescu, ”The Holocaust on Trial. Memory and Amnesia in the Case of Romanian War Criminals” in Holocaust. Studii și cercetări, no. 1 (8) / 2015;

Abstract: This study addresses the cases of persons convicted for war crimes after 1945 and acquitted after 1989 by the Romanian judiciary. It will explore the judges’ and prosecutors’ depiction of criminal responsibility, their use of evidence and their knowledge about the Holocaust. The final aim of the article is to explain the factors which made possible these acquittals and to assess their meaning for the relation between justice, history and memory.

  1. Alexandru Florian, ”From Ion Antonescu to the Saints of the Prisons. Extremist symbols in the public space”  in Sfera Politicii, no. 2 (184) / 2015, pp. 66-82;

Abstract: Memory in the public space is represented by symbols and messages with a powerful ideological and historical meaning. Freedom of expression frames a space of competitive memories. The memories of the Second World War or of the Holocaust can be classified as „god” or „bad” according to the degree to which they rewrite the totalitarian and criminal nature of a political life which too often is characterized as „contradictory”.

(published in 2015);

Abstract: Avec l’article de Michael Shafir, nous touchons au cas du populisme au pouvoir avec une de ses hypostases les plus remarquables, l’inévitable Hongrie et son Premier ministre électoralement plébiscité, Viktor Orbán. L’auteur fait ici le point sur le discret antisémitisme officiel au sein de nombreuses opinions et administrations de la région consistant à les dédouaner de toute culpabilité dans le génocide juif par la mise en balance avec la participation de certains membres des minorités juives, surtout après 1945, à l’appareil répressif stalinien. Là encore, l’européanisation forcée en la matière a joué le rôle contraire de mémoire imposée, de repoussoir et d’obstacle à surmonter. En filigrane de cet article apparaît la persistance structurante du juif pour la construction des nationalismes de la région

  1. Alexandru Florian, ”Memoria publică a Holocaustului in postcomunism” in Polis, vol IV, nr. 1 (11) / 2016.

Abstract: Just after 1989, the public space became, naturally, opened for the pluralistic expression of social and political messages. The official public discourse of the national-communist state is being gradually replaced with a variety of legitimizing messages. The new democratic state undertakes hesitating steps in its endeavour to redefine the public symbols. The newly emerged social and political actors are also taking part in redesigning the public space. New messages, recuperative messages and identity narratives coexist, contrast one another and produce a heterogeneous aggregation of civic values. Sometimes, the situations have aberrant results.

Until August 23, 1944 Romania was a loyal ally of Nazi Germany and an active participant in the process of solving the Jewish problem. During these years between 180000 and 300000 Jewish men, women and children were killed or died by illness, hunger and/or cold in the territories found under Romanian authority. After 1948 the communist regime was established in Romania and for the next 50 years the Holocaust became a taboo topic: nothing happened to the Romanian Jews during the war and we even forget that not so long ago in our past, almost 800000 Jews were our neighbors and co-citizens. Starting from here and given the silence of our textbooks during the communist era, we were interested to reconstruct different models of remembering the Holocaust in post-communist Romanian textbooks our findings demonstrating the existence of six different models of recollecting this terrible event. The analysis was focused on the Romanian History textbooks edited before and after 1989 while the methodological approach was a qualitative one.

Abstract: This paper investigates the survivors’ personal narratives as sources for the study and research of the Holocaust in Romania. I am interested in reviewing those documentary sources, the subjects they refer to and how these subjects are discussed and introduced to the public. I place this research in the theoretical framework of ‘collective memory’, being interested in bringing to the reader the manner in which these personal narratives could contribute to building the memory of the Holocaust in Romania. My study is placed in the context of historical research with a qualitative methodology of the social sciences approach. The personal narratives of Holocaust survivors are the primary sources of this research, and the analysis focuses on the message and the sender.
  1. Laura Degeratu, ”Reconstructing the Memory of the Holocaust in Romania through film” in Holocaust. Studies and Research, no. 1 (9) / 2016, pending publication.
Abstract: : The current study regards films as a powerful vector of memory and aims to identify if and how are represented the main events in the history of the Holocaust in Romania in movies produced in the post-communist period or aired on Romanian televisions. Starting from the above mentioned enquiry, my aim is twofold: on one hand I am interested to identify how is the Holocaust remembered in the Romanian filmography? What is the status ascribed to the victim, perpetrator and bystander? Do we have a throughout description of these categories or some of them are eluded while others are described in a distorted manner? Where the responsibility lays, and how is constructed in these films the relation between the Romanian authorities and the German ally?

Care este durata de viata a unui cookie?

Cookie-urile sunt administrate de webservere. Durata de viata a unui cookie poate varia semnificativ, depinzand de scopul pentru care este plasat. Unele cookie-uri sunt folosite exclusiv pentru o singura sesiune (session cookies) si nu mai sunt retinute, odata ce utilizatorul a parasit website-ul, in timp ce alte cookie-uri sunt retinute si refolosite de fiecare data cand utilizatorul revine pe acel website ('cookie-uri persistente'). Cu toate acestea, cookie-urile pot fi sterse de un utilizator in orice moment prin intermediul setarilor browserului.


Ce sunt cookie-urile plasate de terti?

Anumite sectiuni de continut de pe unele site-uri pot fi furnizate prin intermediul unor terte parti / furnizori (ex.: news-box, un video sau o reclama). Aceste terte parti pot plasa cookie-uri prin intermediul altui website si ele se numesc "third party cookies" pentru ca nu sunt plasate de proprietarul website-ului respectiv. Furnizorii terti trebuie sa respecte de asemenea legea in vigoare si politicile de confidentialitate ale detinatorului site-ului.

Aceste cookie-uri pot proveni de la urmatorii terti:,, etc.


Cum sunt folosite cookie-urile de catre website

O vizita pe website poate plasa cookie-uri in scopuri de:

• crestere a performantei website-ului;

• analiza a vizitatorilor;

• geotargetting;

• inregistrare a utilizatorilor.


Alte cookie-uri ale tertelor parti

Pe unele pagini, tertii pot seta propriile cookie-uri anonime, in scopul de a urmari succesul unei aplicatii sau pentru a particulariza o aplicatie. Datorita modului de utilizare, website-ul nu poate accesa aceste cookie-uri, la fel cum tertele parti nu pot accesa cookie-urile detinute de respectivul website. De exemplu, cand utilizatorul distribuie un articol folosind butonul pentru retelele sociale aflat pe un website, acea retea sociala va inregistra activitatea utiliatorului, nu website-ul pe care se afla butonul.


Ce tip de informatii sunt stocate si accesate prin intermediul cookie-urilor?

Cookie-urile pastreaza informatii intr-un fisier text de mici dimensiuni, care permit unui website sa recunoasca un browser. Web-serverul va recunoaste browserul, pana cand cookie-ul expira sau este sters. Cookie-ul stocheaza informatii importante, care imbunatatesc experienta de navigare pe Internet, de exemplu:

• setarile limbii in care se doreste accesarea unui site;

• pastrarea unui utilizator logat in contul de webmail;

• securitatea online banking;

• pastrarea produselor in cosul de cumparaturi.


De ce sunt cookie-urile importante pentru Internet?

Cookie-urile reprezinta punctul central al functionarii eficiente a Internetului, ajutand la generarea unei experiente de navigare prietenoase si adaptata preferintelor si intereselor fiecarui utilizator.Refuzarea sau dezactivarea cookie-urilor poate face unele website-uri imposibil de folosit. Refuzarea sau dezactivarea cookie-urilor nu inseamna ca utilizatorul nu va mai primi publicitate online - ci doar ca aceasta nu va mai putea tine cont de preferintele si interesele utilizatorului, evidentiate prin comportamentul de navigare.

Exemple de intrebuintari importante ale cookie-urilor (care nu necesita autentificarea unui utilizator prin intermediul unui cont):

• continut si servicii adaptate preferintelor utilizatorului - categorii de stiri, vreme, sport, harti, servicii publice si guvernamentale, website-uri distractive si servicii de turism;

• oferte adaptate pe interesele utilizatorilor - retinerea parolelor, preferintelor de limba (ex.: afisarea rezultatelor cautarilor in limba romana)

• retinerea filtrelor de protectie a copiilor privind continutul pe Internet (optiuni family mode, functii de safe search);

• masurarea, optimizarea si caracteristicile de analytics - cum ar fi: confirmarea unui anumit nivel de trafic pe un website, ce tip de continut este vizualizat si modul cum un utilizator ajunge pe un website (ex. prin motoare de cautare, direct, din alte website-uri etc.). Detinatorii website-urilor deruleaza aceste analize pentru a perfectiona website-urile, in beneficiul utilizatorilor.


Securitate si probleme legate de confidentialitate

Cookie-urile NU sunt virusi! Ele folosesc formate tip plain text. Nu sunt alcatuite din bucati de cod, asa ca nu pot fi executate, nici nu pot rula in mod automat. In consecinta, nu se pot duplica sau replica pe alte retele pentru a rula sau a se replica din nou. Deoarece nu pot indeplini aceste functii, nu pot fi considerate virusi. Cookie-urile pot fi, totusi, folosite pentru scopuri negative. Deoarece stocheaza informatii despre preferintele si istoricul de navigare al utilizatorilor, atat pe un anume website cat si pe alte website-uri, cookie-urile pot fi folosite ca o forma de Spyware. Multe produse anti-spyware sunt constiente de acest fapt si, in mod constant, marcheaza cookie-urile pentru a fi sterse, in cadrul procedurilor de stergere/scanare anti-virus/anti-spyware. In general, browserele au integrate reglaje de confidentialitate, care furnizeaza diferite nivele de acceptare a cookie-urilor, perioada de valabilitate si stergere automata dupa ce utilizatorul a vizitat un anumit site.


Alte aspecte de securitate legate de cookie-uri

Deoarece protectia identitatii este foarte valoroasa si reprezinta dreptul fiecarui utilizator de Internet, este indicat sa se stie ce eventuale probleme pot crea cookie-urile.

Pentru ca prin intermediul lor se transmit in mod constant, in ambele sensuri, informatii intre browser si website, daca un atacator sau persoana neautorizata intervine in parcursul de transmitere a datelor, informatiile continute de cookie pot fi interceptate. Desi foarte rar, acest lucru se poate intampla daca browserul se conecteaza la server folosind o retea necriptata (ex.: o retea WiFi nesecurizata).

Alte atacuri bazate pe cookie implica reglaje gresite ale cookie-urilor pe webservere. Daca un website nu solicita browserului sa foloseasca doar canale criptate, atacatorii pot folosi aceasta vulnerabilitate pentru a pacali browserele in a trimite informatii prin intermediul canalelor nesecurizate. Atacatorii utilizeaza apoi informatiile cu scopul de a accesa neautorizat anumite site-uri.

Este foarte important ca utilizatorii sa fie atenti in alegerea metodei celei mai potrivite de protectie a informatiilor personale.


Sfaturi pentru o navigare sigura si responsabila, bazata pe cookies

Datorita flexibilitatii lor si a faptului ca majoritatea dintre cele mai vizitate website-uri, inclusiv cele mai mari, folosesc cookie-uri, acestea sunt aproape inevitabile. Dezactivarea cookie-urilor nu va permite accesul utilizatorului pe site-urile cele mai raspandite si utilizate, printre care: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo si altele.

Iata cateva sfaturi care va pot asigura ca navigati fara grija, insa cu ajutorul cookie-urilor:

• particularizati-va reglajele browserului, in ceea ce priveste cookie-urile, pentru a reflecta un nivel confortabil pentru dumneavoastra al securitatii utilizarii cookie-urilor;

• daca nu va deranjeaza cookie-urile si sunteti singura persoana care utilizeaza computerul, puteti regla termene lungi de expirare pentru stocarea istoricului de navigare si al datelor personale de acces;

• daca impartiti accesul la calculator, puteti lua in considerare reglarea browserului pentru a sterge datele individuale de navigare de fiecare data cand inchideti browserul. Aceasta este o varianta de a accesa website-urile care plaseaza cookie-uri si de a sterge orice informatie de vizitare, la inchiderea sesiunii de navigare;

• instalati-va si actualizati-va constant aplicatii antispyware. Multe dintre aplicatiile de detectare si prevenire a spyware-ului includ detectarea atacurilor pe site-uri. Astfel, impiedica browserul de a accesa website-uri care ar putea sa exploateze vulnerabilitatile browserului sau sa descarce software periculos;

• asigurati-va ca aveti browserul mereu actualizat. Multe dintre atacurile bazate pe cookies se realizeaza exploatand punctele slabe ale versiunilor vechi ale browserelor.

Cookie-urile sunt pretutindeni si nu pot fi evitate, daca doriti sa va bucurati de acces pe cele mai bune si cele mai mari site-uri de pe Internet - locale sau internationale. Cu o intelegere clara a modului lor de operare si a beneficiilor pe care le aduc, puteti lua masurile necesare de securitate, astel incat sa puteti naviga cu incredere pe Internet.

Cum procedati daca nu doriti sa fie instalate module cookie pe computerul dumneavoastra?

Exista persoane pentru care stocarea unor informatii extrase din computerul sau dispozitivul lor mobil are un caracter relativ invaziv, mai ales atunci cand informatiile in cauza sunt stocate si utilizate de catre terti care le sunt necunoscuti. Daca preferati, aveti posibilitatea de a bloca toate modulele cookie sau doar pe unele dintre acestea ori chiar de a elimina module cookie care au fost instalate pe terminalul dumneavoastra. Fiti insa constient de faptul ca riscati sa nu puteti utiliza anumite functii. Pentru a activa acest blocaj, trebuie sa modificati parametrii de confidentialitate ai browserului. Unii operatori terti au elaborat instrumente ale caror module permit sa se dezactiveze culegerea si utilizarea datelor. Dezactivarea si refuzul de a primi cookie-uri pot face anumite site-uri impracticabile sau dificil de vizitat si folosit. De asemenea, refuzul de a accepta cookie-uri nu inseamna ca utilizatorul nu va mai primi / vedea publicitate online. Este posibila reglarea din browser pentru ca aceste cookie-uri sa nu mai fie acceptate, sau se poate regla browserul sa accepte cookie-uri de la un anumit website. Dar, de exemplu, daca un utilizator nu este inregistat folosind cookie-urile, nu va putea lasa comentarii. Toate browserele moderne ofera posibilitatea de a schimba reglajele cookie-urilor.

Aceste reglaje se gasesc, de regula, in meniurile (butoanele) "Optiuni", "Reglaje" sau "Preferinte" ale browserului.
