Donation of Sanda Stolojan Collection to INMER
The Sanda Stolojan collection was donated by Sanda Stolojan to the National Institute for the Memory of the Romanian Exile (INMER). This was possible as a result of the Institute's efforts to identify such collections for the purpose of bringing them to Romania and opening them for research. The completion of a full inventory and the opening of the collection for research took place in 2005. On the one hand, the documents in the Sanda Stolojan Collection contribute to the understanding of the history of the Romanian exile community as well as of Romanian–French bilateral relations between 1968 and 1998. On the other hand, this private archive reflects a series of actions taken by the collector and other personalities in exile to stop human rights abuses in communist Romania and the demolitions imposed by the Ceaușescu regime after 1977. At the same time, some of the materials contained in the collection document the way some of the personalities of the Romanian exile contributed to the consolidation of democracy in post-communist Romania.
