Three life stories: Mircea Mitroi, Babushka and Radion Chiaburu

“Life story of Radion Chiaburu” (2014)


Book description: “Aged 93, Radion Chiaburu (b. 10 April 1920) well remembers the moment when, as a child born in Bessarabia, he was taken from his homeland to Bucharest (the country’s capital), to study at the royal school in the class of Prince Heir Mihai of Romania (King between 1940-1948). This moment changed his whole destinity…. Recalling his past, Mr. Chiaburu considers that it saved him, because due to being classmate with the King he was aided by His Majesty to bring his family from the Soviet-occupied Bessarabia to Romania, where they lived on the Royal Domains. Pilot during World War II and maybe the finest expert in the industry of wood packages after the 50s, Mr. Chiaburu lived a life worth to be known. The book also gives an insight into Monarchy and Royalty, showing one of its advantages: the future King is grown and educated to be a Monarch.” 

“Babushka. Life story of Maria Mitroi, born Covaliov” (2011)


Book description: “Maria Mitroi, born Covaliov (b. 14 June 1931), recalls the history of her family, from its both Russian sides (mother’s: Pavlov, from Odessa; father’s: Covaliov, from Ismail – whose destines were united at Tulcea); and the history of her own life: from her nice childhood as a girl born of Russian blood, but Romanian by everything else; to year 1942, when she lost her most beloved father; to year 1958, when her husband was imprisoned by the totalitarian Communist regime, with all their properties taken and no money left to take care of her two children and mother; and, finally, to old age, when she is aged 82 and the lovely grandmother of 4 nephews”.

“Life Story of Mircea Mitroi” (2010)


Book description: “The life story of Mircea Mitroi (b. 29 December 1916 – d. 3 January 2012), from his childhood in a Romanian village, to the maturity when, through education, reached the city, becoming an accountant; to World War II against Nazi Germany (1944-45); to the totalitarian Communist regime that imprisoned him for 6 years (separating him from his family – wife and two daughters) for no other reason than being against the Soviet dictatorship; to the years of democracy, ending with a lovely grandfather who lived his 95 years of life in a very balanced way”.


About Tudor Vişan-Miu
Sunt un tanar cu preocupari intelectuale. Principalele mele domenii de interes: istoria, genealogia, memorialistica, literatura, lingvistica, economia, politica, filosofia, teologia. Legat de aceste domenii: cred ca istoria este o forma de a invata despre oameni, ca fiecare persoană are origini familiale ce merita aflate si ca "o viata capata mai mult sens atunci cand este scrisa". Iubesc cartile. Cred ca a scrie corect in propria limba este o dovada de patriotism (nu am putut-o face in acest profil deoarece Gravatarul nu accepta diacritice - n.m.). Am o viziune social-economica "de dreapta". Cred ca "treburile publice" sunt o chestiune de interes general, dincolo de "partea scandaloasa" ce prea adesea însoteste administrarea lor. In privinta formei de guvernamant a Romaniei, sunt sustinatorul unei monarhii constitutionale. Consider democratia si capitalismul cele mai bune sisteme inventate pana acum de catre om. Filosofic, ader la modernitatea clasica. Religios, sunt un crestin fundamentalist si conservator. ”Primeste deci darul meu, care ti-a fost adus, fiindca Dumnezeu m-a umplut de bunatati si am de toate” (Geneza, 33:11)
