Important people of the history and present from Romania


Against All - Locotenent Comandor Aviator Dan Valentin Vizanty

The fate of Romania in World War II is similar to the fate of other small states at this time. After the busy end of the 1930s, it came under the influence of Germany and entered the war with the USSR alongside it. So he wanted to regain the territory lost just in favor of the attacked. After that, however, the Romanian soldiers had to take part in further campaigns, which culminated in a defeat at Stalingrad. Since 1943, their own country has been the target of attacks by the US Strategic Air Force. Subsequent failures of Germany in 1944 brought the Romanians to the side of the Allies, who then ended the war in Czechoslovakia. And Romanian fighters took part in all these victories and losses. They won over 1,200 victories and one of the most successful was Dan Valentin Vizanty.

Gheorghe Pintilie - Founder of the Romanian Secret Service Securitate

Gheorghe Pintilie, real name Timofej Bondarenko, was a Romanian communist of Ukrainian descent and an officer of the Soviet secret service NKVD, the founder and first director of the Romanian secret service Securitate. He organized mass repression, yet he was never punished for his crimes.
