The exhibition, round table and memorial procession (including a flower wreaths laying ceremony at the Buftea Heroes’ Cross) were organized, in Buftea, on the 9-th of June 2016 (Heroes’ Day) as part of the cultural project funded by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund. The city was chosen for the exhibition vernissage due to the fact that two project partners, of the National Institute of Heritage, two representative institutions for Ilfov County: the Ilfov County Culture Department and the Buftea Mayor’s Office. At the exhibition’s vernissage (18 exhibition panels) and at the round table, local and county authorities, representatives of education institutions, and even war heroes’ descendants, whose photographs and frontline journals were captured on two panels (Dan Alexandru Cucuiu, Petrişor Mariana etc.), took part. The Buftea Mayor’s Office exhibition, opened on the 9-th of June, lasted until the 1-st of July 2016.
