Through the Iron Curtain - From Romania documentary was born from fifteen oral history recordings completed by HORA in working with Town Square Television in 2015. We are deeply grateful to all the participants who, at times, through tears recollected their emotional immigration memories, escaping Communist Romania.

Special thanks to Town Square Television for an extraordinary long-term partnership and generous contributions!
