The Archive of the Romanian Revolution of December 1989

A Catch-22 December 1989, Groundhog-Day Production. Presenting the Personal Research & Scholarship of Richard Andrew Hall, Ph.D.

Dan Adrian Urucu, impuscat la Televiziune (The Guardian, 27 December 1989; Tineretul Liber, 15 September 1991)

(purely personal views as always, based on over two decades of prior research and publications)

It has been rare in my experience to see the case of someone killed or wounded in December 1989 to show up in both international media and Romanian media.  The case of Dan Adrian Urucu is one of them.

“Further down lay Dan Adrian Urucu, a student who joined a human shield between Ceausescu loyalists and the army was killed by a dum-dum bullet in the back.” (Alexis Howell in Cluj, Kester Eddy in Sibiu, and AP in Bucharest, “Victims buried as ‘terrorists’ are hunted,” The Guardian, 27 December 1989)

D-na Vaselina Urucu, cercetator stiintific la Institutul de Geografie al Academiei, nu a mai aflat vesti despre fiul sau, Dan Adrian Urucu, decit pe 24 Decembrie, seara, cind unul dintre prietenii lui l-a recunoscut la morga Spitalului de Urgenta.  ,A fost impuscat la Televiziune, ne-a povestit in continuare, diagnosticul care i s-a stabilit fiind plaga prin impuscare in bratul sting.  Glontul a patruns prin umarul sting si a facut explozie in piept.  Nu stiu daca glontul l-a fost extras, pentru ca nu i s-a facut autopsie.’
