Nicolae Ceaucesçu Last Speech

This is the other video I mentioned in my talk, the last speech by the Rumanian dictator Nicolae Ceaucesçu in 1989. The protestors begin screaming about 2:30 into the speech. Watch Ceaucesçu’s expression as he is interrupted, and the apparatchiks scurrying around on the balcony.

(Unless you speak Romanian, I’d recommend running the video at 2X speed.)

The second part of that same speech can’t be embedded, but you can watch it here. More scurrying around on the balcony starts about 8:30 into the video.

Youtube also has this short documentary of Ceaucesçu’s last day.
