Executions → Execution of Nicolae and Elena Ceaucescu (12/25/1989)
Nicolae Ceausescu a was the leader (General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party) of Romania from 1965 until December 1989.
Ceausescu's regime collapsed after a series of violent events in Timisoara and Bucharest in December 1989. On December 25, Nicolae and Elena Ceaucescu were condemned to death by a military court on charges ranging from illegal gathering of wealth to genocide, and were executed executed by shooting in Targoviste. Before they were shot dead, Ceausescu sang part of "The Internationale" and proclaimed that history would judge him well. His wife was screaming at everyone to go to hell. The Ceausescus were executed by Captain Ionel Boeru and two other soldiers who shot them with AK-47 assault rifles. The "trial" and execution were videotaped. The footage was promptly released in France and other western countries. Several days later, footage of their trial and pictures of their corpses (but not of the execution itself) were released on television for the Romanian public.
