Organized by:

Primăria Agnita prin Casa de Cultură „Ilarion Cocișiu” Agnita, Asociatia Valea Hârtibaciului, Protopopiatul Agnita, Muzeul de Istorie Valea Hârtibaciului, Comunitățile patrimoniale din podișul Hârtibaciului

The ancient village of Fetea (abandoned today), attested in writing for the first time in 1357, used to house, in the dense forests of the Hârtibaciului Plateau - rightly called in the first Josephine topographic survey "Tinutul Padurilor" / "Waldland" - the stud farm of horses of the Agninese!
Also here, the first anti-communist resistance center in Transylvania would be born in the post-war period, in a place off the beaten track. Since 2002, a monument erected in a clearing in the forest recalls the fate of those executed - often without trial - and those who went through the cruel experience of "re-education", such as Eng. Aurel Ursu from Nou Săsesc and Dr. Teofil Mija from Brateiu, (those who erected the monument) between the villages of Ruja and Nou Săsesc.
Beyond the known history, assumed or not, many families from the Hârtibaciului Plateau keep stories from those times, which die out with the seniors. On Saturday, from 11:00 a.m., on the spot, we will address re-education in communist Romania and the power of resilience through a book release: "Documents of re-education" - vol. III, Vicovia Publishing House, 2023.
Authors: Mircea Stănescu and Vlad Mitric-Ciupe - in the presence of dr. ist. Mircea Stănescu, historian and archivist at the Bureau of Contemporary Archives of the National Archives of Romania, president of the Memory and History of Communism Association.

The volume is part of the "Trilogy of Reeducation" and contains documents from the CNSAS Archive (formerly of the Security), the Central National Historical Archives and the Archive of the National Administration of Penitentiaries.
