Micro-exhibition “Abolition of the Death Penalty in Romanian Principalities in the 19th Century”

In 1865, Romania was the first country in modern European history to abolish the death penalty, followed by Portugal in 1867 and the Netherlands in 1870. Our micro-exhibition presents three 19th century milestones in the abolition of capital punishment in Romanian Principalities reflected in archival documents: Organic Regulation of 1831, Proclamation of Islaz of 1848 and the Penal Code of 1865. The exhibition will be open at our headquarters in Bucharest, Bvd. Regina Elisabeta, no. 49, Bucharest, between June 5 and July 5, 2018. It is also available online on Google Arts&Culture.
