Ceausescu Execution Site, 20 Years Later

Embedded below is a 3 minute piece from CNN in which a reporter re-visits the otherwise grim and unremarkable compound where Romanian dictator Nicolai Ceausescu and his wife were summarily tried and, minutes later, executed by firing squad on Christmas Day in 1989. That's 20 years ago now, amazingly. I thought that the details about what each of the Ceausescus were doing as they were shot were both interesting and revealing.
