Beyond Torture: The Gulag of Pitesti, Romania

Description:

Firsthand stories of the persecution of Romanians under Stalinist communism

When you said, 'I still believe in God,' in five minutes you were full of blood. - Roman Braga

Many of us died, many of us became mad, but in some of us the good triumphed. - George Calciu

These chilling words from two survivors of a brainwashing prison in Pitesti, Romania are sad reminders of the legacy of Stalinist communism. Beyond Torture: The Gulag of Pitesti, Romania documents the persecution of Romanians under the communist regime. Electrical shock, hallucinogenic drugs, near starvation and fatal beatings were daily rituals in the prison of Pitesti, Romania. But this sadistic story goes beyond torture: this was an attempt to totally destroy a people's culture and faith.

In 1949, Stalinist Soviets began a systematic sweep of Romanian college campuses. Their purpose was to imprison and transform young Romanians into a communistic way of thinking. One prisoner describes this re-education as the most vile tortures imaginable. Orthodox priest Father George Calciu says, They tried to destroy our souls. But he and others survived this gulag, lived to tell their stories and even forgave their captors.

In this documentary, you'll meet three survivors from the prison of Pitesti and see shocking paintings that capture the essence of the extreme torture. This DVD also includes an in-depth one-hour interview with Father Roman Braga: prison survivor and spiritual leader.

Outside of Romania, this DVD is the first major historical documentation of the Pitesti experience.

Optional English subtitles.

The next time anyone suggests that Marxism is some sort of "answer" to the world's problems, have them watch this video.

It was surely the grace of God that got these men through horrors that nearly no one alive today could imagine.

Sadly, the anti-God/anti-human mentality that was and is behind Applied Marxism is alive & well in today's world. It just doesn't use the same terms anymore. Stand guard. And learn with this short documentary.

Warning: Not for children or the squeamish.

WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANITY
But this is to to fulfill what is written in their Law:
'They hated Me without reason.' (John 15:25; Psalm 69:4). Jesus Christ said, "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." (John 15:18). Many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. (Philippians 3:18). If you belong to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do NOT belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. (John 15:18-19).
Jesus said, Remember the words I spoke to you: If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also. (John15:20).
They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do NOT know the One (God) who sent Me. (John 15:21). Jesus said, All men will hate you because of Me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Matthew 10:22, Mark 13:13). Help me Lord, not be among those who when trouble or persecution comes because of the Word, they quickly fall away. (Mark 4:17).
