"Adriana Georgescu is the symbol of the obstinacy with wich Romanian students and youth in general defied the Soviet occupation after the war. Near Mihai Farcasanu's unmistakable silhouette leading the Liberal Youth demonstration, and inseparable from it, was Adriana's golden hair, athletic slenderness, confident laugh. Newspaperwoman, very young attorney, just out of the University, then General Radescu's Chief of staff, the anti-communist resistance found in her an emblematic figure. She also became one of the first sacrificial victims of the first show trial in the long series that Nicolschi imposed upon Romania, a series that was to lead to the unfinished symphony of horror at Pitesti". (Monica Lovinescu, Paris 1991)
