Emilia Codrescu had been responsible for the burning and shredding of Romanian censors' notebooks, viewed as state secrets, but prior to fleeing the country in 1974 she had stolen one. Now, forty years later, she makes the notebook available to Liliana Corobca for the newly instituted Museum of Communism. 'The Censor's Notebook' is a window into the intimate workings of censorship under communism, steeped in mystery and secrets and lies, confirming the power of literature to capture personal and political truths.
