Children of Ceausescu
by Kent Kilch
Publisher's Description
"In 1989, the first television pictures from Romania's children's homes shocked the world. More than 100,000 undernourished children were kept in institutions reminiscent of concentration camps, bound hand and foot, maltreated by their 'guards.' Thousands of these children had been infected with HIV. According to President Ceausescu, HIV and AIDS did not exist in Romania. This denial caused the virus to spread rapidly in the decade preceding his downfall; its repercussions are still being felt a decade after. Thousands of children have died. This book pays homage to them and to the children that are still living."-the publisher.
