1st December with DCB
On Romania’s national day, we dived into the history of the 1st of December 1918, we discussed the factors that led to the Unification of Romania and drew a parallel between Romania of that time and Romania of today.
The 1st of December has been celebrated as Romania’s National Day only since 1990 and, from a historical perspective, it represents the Unification of Transylvania with Romania. We tried to answer the following questions: What do we know and what don’t we know about the Unification of Romania? What is some trivia about that day? What were some of the important points negotiated during the Alba Iulia treaty? What topics of discussion are still present in today’s Romanian society?
These questions were the base of a short, historical presentation. The free discussion that followed reinforced the importance of knowing one’s history in order to build for a better future.
