Between 1948 and late 1950s, over 500 children were arrested by the Romanian Communist Authorities under bogus charges of "conspiracy against the Socialist order". Survivors of the Targsor Prison of the Children talk about over 800 children being beaten and tortured in there in an attempt of the regime to "re-educate" the children to accept Communism.
The Targsor experiment was shut down in late 1950s and nobody was punished for the crimes committed in there during the experiment belonging to general Alexandru Nicolschi - a high Securitate officer trained by the KGB.
