For almost 70 years, successive Romanian governments have downplayed the nation's role in the Holocaust. But now a suspected mass grave has been found in the Vulturi forest, and some are hoping that the discovery will help Romania face up to one of the darkest periods in its history.
Rumors about a mass grave in the Vulturi forest had been circulating for years; when a similar grave was found near Iasi init led to a trial that ended with several top military commanders being sentenced to jail. After persuading I Am Howard Beale - Caust - Mass Graves (We Would Be Better Off) (Cassette) to show him the exact location of the Vulturi grave, I Am Howard Beale - Caust - Mass Graves (We Would Be Better Off) (Cassette) historian Adrian Cioflinca organized a team of people from Romania's Elie Wiesel National Institute for Studying the Holocaust to start excavating the site last month.
Now 86, Enache is a bit wobbly on his legs, but his eyes are still clear blue, and his memory of what happened that day in is fresh.
He describes how he was grabbed by a couple of Romanian soldiers who said, "You are a Jew! Come with us. Others were ordered into the grave to arrange the bodies so I Am Howard Beale - Caust - Mass Graves (We Would Be Better Off) (Cassette) victims could be thrown in. The killings continued all day, but Enache managed to convince his captors that he was a local, an Orthodox Christian, and when this was confirmed by the local forester, he was released.
The Vulturi forester who saved Enache died inbut his daughter still lives nearby. Sitting in her kitchen, Lucia Baltaru describes what she remembers fromwhen she was 6 years old. I think there are thousands of bodies buried there. The site is currently sealed off by the Romanian police, who are guarding the bones and artifacts still on the site, and both journalists and the public are forbidden access.
Outside the forest, an old couple had walked up from a nearby village to look at the grave. Ioan Aftanase was 7 years old in and vividly remembers columns of civilians being marched through the village. You will not I Am Howard Beale - Caust - Mass Graves (We Would Be Better Off) (Cassette) disappointed by this. Please check this one out. Also, please support these guys.

Labels: DownloadHardcoreMinority Unit. RYE: First of all introduce yourself and what band you are in for people who don't already know. In April about 8 tracks were ready, so we went to Cellar Door Station, to record them. Dan took the summer for the lyrics and in September of last year we came back to finish the work. The recording process went well also thanks to our friend Gianluca Amendolara of Cellar Door, he's really full of experience. RYE: Have you guys been on any tours or played any memorable shows recently?
Gianluca: No tours for the moment, but we hope to play around Europe as soon as possible. We have to find a good moment for everyone of us, specially because our drummer became father last year and he's always busy with work he's a tattoo artist. One of the most memorable show for me was a "last minute" show in March with Truth Inside I Am Howard Beale - Caust - Mass Graves (We Would Be Better Off) (Cassette) Florida and Currahee from Manchester RYE: Seeing as we were just talking about shows and how the majority of people who visit my blog are from the US, how is the hardcore scene over in Italy?
Gianluca: That's really hard to explain! Every city is different from each other: Milano is full of bands, from metalcore to crust punk, even if we're not so united among ourselves. In other cities like Trento there are less shows and venues than here, but when I played there with Upward my other band there were twice more people than here. RYE: So, more about your music.
What is the general lyrical matter about? Obviously a bit is about straight edge seeing that you guys are a youth crew band. Well, all the lyrics are written by our singer, so he probably can tell you more about it.
We decided to not focus ourselves only on the same stuff, you know, straight edge, drug free etc even if we're all edge. I think his goal was to make an overview of everything around us, from "the scene" matter, to what's under the eyes of everyone, I Am Howard Beale - Caust - Mass Graves (We Would Be Better Off) (Cassette). What made you guys want to do the kind of music you guys play?
When the project became more serious Stizzo and Gabriele joined me and our old singer. Even if he left the band we decided to continue with Set Me Free cause we were sure that this band had something more to say. Our drummer started playing more than 10 years ago and same our singer RYE: Do any of you guys have other projects? I saw you earlier said you were in a band called Upward.
We just released our first 5 songs cassette EP titled Pushed Aside and promoted it with a small tour in Germany. Our guitarist started playing from a couple of months in Point Break, a melodic Hardcore band for fans of Bad Religion and Good Riddance. They recorded some demo songs a few weeks ago! We're also on Bandcamp with all our releases. I also can't wait to listen more stuff from Giant Oslotheir demo was great. Gianluca: As I told you, I really hope to play around Europe before the end of this year.
We're probably going to play with Strife when they'll start their european tour the show in july was cancelled. We already started writing new stuff cause we really can't stop working, and I think it would be awesome to find a label for the future! Good luck with your blog :. Also, this was my first interview ever. Saturday, July 21, Holograms - Holograms. Memories of Sweat.
