Subject Highlights


An exploration of the nature of testimonies about the communist dictatorship in Romania enables this chapter to outline the particular stance of the moral combative witness. The analysis employs Avishai Margalit’s concept of the moral witness in order to expand its range by suggesting that the particular circumstances of the transition to post-communism in Romania turned recollections of battling with and suffering under communism into challenges to the post-89 leadership. An examination of the elucidatory nature of the moral testimony shows the source of knowledge and trust that lend the combative moral witnesses their credibility and force, something lacking in the aspiring moral witness.
