When Propaganda Ruled
Nicolae Ceausescu, "King Of CommunismStreaming Video - 2005
Life in Romania during the regime of Nicolae Ceausescu was at once tragic and absurd as the nation's head of state erected a cult of personality that literally turned his country into a stage show.

Ceausescu scripted an epic with himself as the star, but others wrote the inevitable denouement that brought down the curtain on him and his wife, Elena, a "scientist of world renown.
