Culisele războiului în opinia unui parlamentar tutovean (1917-1918)

  • Subiect: „Theodor Emandi (1868-1942), well known magistrate, politician (mayor of Bârlad, prefect of Tutova, senator), illustrious diplomat (representing Romania at Belgrade and Prague), proved to be also an author of memoirs in times of war (1917-1919). His memoirs were written during his refugee at Odessa (July 1917-March 1918) and present two capital aspects: the activity of the Parliament and the Liberal Government led by Ion. I. C. Brătianu, accused of not handling properly the internal and military politics during the Romania’s involvement in the First World War. He condemns the signing of the Truce at Focşani with The Central Powers (November/ December 1917) and also the signing of the separate Peace with Germany by the Conservative Government led by Alexandru Marghiloman. On the other hand, Theodor Emandi makes an interesting analysis of the situation in Russia, following the fallout of the Russian Empire (February 1917) and the victory of the Bolsheviks led by V. I. Lenin, after the coup d’etat (October 25th /November 7th 1917). Generalized anarchy had taken over the city of Odessa, where many Romanian citizens and authorities had taken refuge. Among them, Theodor Emandi. Beyond normal subjectivity in the description of some Romanian realities, the memoirs of Theodor Emandi incite to curiosity regarding the atmosphere described in the old capital of Moldavia, Iaşi; which had become the capital of the Romanian ressistance between 1917-1919, the chaos and violence in Odessa during the “revolutionary years”, the hopes and deceptions associated with his native Bârlad and his estate at Iveşti-Tutova.”
