Subject: [Cz-L] Book of the Month, March 2017: The People Accuse!


Based on the Nuremberg model, People's Tribunals were set up in Romania by a
decree issued by King Michael I on April 21, 1945. For us the first trial
held by the Bucharest People's Tribunal is of particular importance, since
it dealt - i. a. - with the war crimes committed in Bukovina and
particularly in the Czernowitz Ghetto. The bill of indictment, the opening
statements of the prosecution as well as the attorney's speach are
reproduced [in Romanian language] in this month's Book of the Month:

The analysis of the war crimes committed in and around Czernowitz under the
headline "Bukovina Fallen in the Hands of a Gang of Thieves" starts on page
54. The media coverage on this trial and the verdicts, referred to as "Death
to the War Criminals", became Book of the Month, June 2015:

General Corneliu Calotescu, formerly plenipotentiary Governor of Bukovina,
was among the group of 29 officers sentenced to death for war crimes on 22
May 1945. The sentence was commuted to life imprisonment but he was released
in an amnesty in 1955.
