Romania joined these days Poland, Germany, Hungary and Slovakia in the European Network "Remembrance and Solidarity". No, it is a simple signature on a paper commissioned. We employ the term gesture. First of all, the document indicates a truth universally accepted as apparent as it is frequently ignored: differences across political, social, cultural or otherwise, Eastern Europe is suffering caused by communism, but not less than fascism a common denominator. That is why, in possession of such a bond, it is inexplicable how little changes between them esteuropenii opinions, experiences and visions. In general, only the former communist countries are turning to the West, ignoring neighbors destiny. We know better what others do, different than what those concerned like us.
Then, this German fixed network founding members welcome relativize strict collocation eastern communism. However, this is a project in Western thought and Eastern applied.

Because, ultimately, memory inalienable right.
