The Romanian Revolution of 1989 began with nationwide protests in which people demanded political freedom, freedom of expression and economic reforms. However, the communist government responded to the protests with brutal violence, resulting in numerous deaths and fuelling discontent, which led to even larger demonstrations and further escalation. The overthrow of Nicolae Ceaușescu and his wife initiated the formation of an interim government and paved the way for Romania's transition to a democratic society.
