Blajminute - Monday, in the footsteps of my mother
Monday, in the footsteps of my mother
My mother, Ileana Berlogea, studied in Blaj prior to 1948, when the totalitarian state banned the Greek-catholic church, united to Rome, and closed its library and its schools. My mother never said anything about this past during the communist regime. But all her life had been actually shaped by the school of Blaj, the passion for literature, theatre and European culture promoted here.
