Pictures of deportees and prisoners are on display, in Bucharest, Romania, on May 9, 2013, at the opening of a permanent memorial exhibition for the victims of the communist regime persecutions.After decades of denial, chilling details are emerging about the torment guards inflicted upon political prisoners in Romanian communist-era gulags, as part of a first small step toward holding them to account.
