Bucharest's residents protect themselves from the crossfire during clashes in the Republican square in Bucharest December in this 23, 1989 file photo. Charles Platiau: On December 22 1989, my mind was still full of memories of covering the fall of the Berlin Wall. I was ready to celebrate Christmas with my family, but the Romanian communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu changed my plans.

My boss and I were watching Ceausescu leave Bucharest by helicopter live on TV. I rushed to the airport and was lucky to board a flight chartered by the Medecins du Monde humanitarian organisation. We landed at in Bulgaria and took a taxi to the Romanian border. Luckily the border was not closed and I hitch-hiked a ride to the capital on a truck. At noon I simply took the metro to arrive in downtown Bucharest in the middle of heavy gunfire. No helmet, no bullet proof jacket, only the enthusiasm of youth and the joy of witnessing a historical event: a revolution.

With my 300 mm 2.8 and an extender, I shot residents protecting themselves in the crossfire between an army tank and pro-Ceausescu troops during clashes in Republican square. No time for more pictures, just enough time to process and send a lone color print to reach Sunday newspaper deadlines.There were only two phone lines at the hotel, and scores of reporters arriving to file their stories. I kept the phone line open and did not hang up for 10 days in order to transmit pictures and stories.

The picture made the front page of most international papers. It was not the best picture of the revolution but one of the first color pictures to hit the media market. It reminds me how hard it was to get around with cases of heavy equipment (80 kg of gear including an enlarger, photo paper, a transmitter, a typewriter).

The view from within a cell of the communist-era Ramnicu Sarat prison through a door is pictured at the jail in eastern Romania September 23, 2014. The trial for crimes against humanity for Alexandru Visinescu, the commander of the jail between 1956 and 1963 while the country was under communist rule, began on Wednesday. Prosecutors have accused Visinescu, who turns 89 on Saturday, of subjecting inmates to beatings and starvation, denying them medical treatment and heating. He has said he only followed orders and blamed the country's Stalinist leadership. Up to 2 million people are believed to have been killed, imprisoned, deported or relocated in Romania between 1945 and 1989 under the dictatorships of Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej and Nicolae Ceausescu, one of Eastern Europe's most repressive.

The trial of the 88-year-old, accused of beating and starving inmates in the 1950s and 1960s, is a landmark case in Romania's efforts to deal with the legacy of Communism and the first of its kind in the 25 years since the fall of Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Visinescu, a retired lieutenant-colonel who ran the Ramnicu Sarat prison in southeastern Romania from 1956 to 1963, is charged with genocide, which is listed under crimes against humanity in the Romanian penal code and refers to attempts to fully or partially destroy a community or national, ethnic, racial or religious group.
