Divorce Under Communism
 
Ever wondered how divorce used to be handled back in the days of Communism?

In this video I'll read a fragment from the story "Dinastia" (The Dinasty) by Mircea Munteanu Mongolul - a story included in the book "Înghițiți de pustiu - Amintiri din Comunism" (Swallowed by emptiness - Memories from Communism).


The fragment focuses on the abuses inherent in the law and also on the power that was further unfairly exerted by the women who happened to work for the secret police.


I hope you enjoy it!
