Storyline

Between 1948 and 1951, Romania engaged in a shocking psychological experiment, one of 're-education through torture'. Political prisoners and dissidents were subjected to a psychological torture programme aimed at turning them into Communist supporters. Today, few people know that the experiment ever took place. Tom Wilson has been finding out more about the 'Pitesti Experiment.' Written by andreisamit
