The equinox of the exodus

Boris Buzilă, The equinox of the exodus
Last year, around the vernal equinox, a “round” number of years has past since a certain event not inscribed in any official timeline, but of sad remembrance for those who have lived it themselves and who had to bear the consequences: seventy years since the great exodus over the Prut of an important segment of Bessarabia’s population: the state administration personnel, the intellectual elite, the clergy. Significant names from among those established in Romania are also evoked here.

Keywords: Bessarabia, exodus, the Soviet occupation, “refugees”
