This roundtable explores stories of collaboration, surveillance, and resistance as documented in the files of the Securitate or fictionalized in literature and films. The discussion will address issues such as “east-ethical” versus genuine literary works produced under communism; genderless persecution or dissent; and postsocialist reflections in texts by Herta Müller, Ana Blandiana, Richard Wagner, Monica Lovinescu, and Eginald Schlattner.
