For the first twenty years of his life, author Mircea Iosif Murariu lived in Communist Romania, a country where leaders ruled by force, intimidation, control, and dictatorship. Oppressed citizens were forced to succumb to implementation of rules and a communist ideology. In Destination Unknown, Murariu narrates his story, telling about the state of Romania in 1988, his escape from the country, and the revolution in 1989.
Murariu shares that the base of his success hinged on having a dream, feeling the desire, planning and courage, belief and faith, and simplicity. At the time, he knew attempting to escape was insanity, but he was determined to overcome the odds and the challenges. This memoir describes Murariu’s journey of never giving up and how he made his dream a reality.
Destination Unknown offers one man’s personal story of dreams, hopes, desires, and a willingness to break free from the political, religious, and economical struggle taking place in the country he called home
