Orphan Returns'13


Home Up

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.}
