The infamous 'Neuropsychiatric Hospital for the Irrecuperable' (hopeless) in Siret, Romania- now closed.
This is where NDP faculty,
graduated Seniors and alums volunteered from 1997 to 2004. This is also
where Nadia is from.
The little boy you saw in the video in class, Petrica, who was very sick
is also from Siret.
He was adopted the same year as Nadia.
The following link will take
you to a 2013 Romanian news documentary that features Petrica, returning to
the now abandoned 'hospital' and seeing his biological
mother for the first time in 16 years. This program was controversial in
Romania as it required Romanians to face squarely one of their most
painful "Dangerous Memories."
[The video is in Romanian with
Petrica speaking English.}
