For those who are not familiar with the Romanian living martyr, Richard Wurmbrand who spent 14 years in the pit of a Romanian torture prison 30 feet below the ground, before he was released into the West, after international pressure, I have posted this old interview and a small decryption of his life. Afterwards you will find the letter from Michael Wurmbrand, RIchard’s son, who has finally pored over thousands of documents related to the Securitate’s activities as related to the assasination order given after Wurmbrand and his family emigrated to the United States. One of the biggest complaints the Romanian communist regime had against the Wurmbrand family was that they believed that Romania was being denied ‘most favored nation’ status for about 8 years in a row.

An Interview with Richard Wurmbrand

about the Church under communism

(March 24, 1909 – February 17, 2001)

was a Romanian Christian minister of Jewish descent. He was a youth during a time of anti-Semitic activity in Romania, but it was later, after becoming a believer in Jesus Christ as Messiah, and daring to publicly say that Communism and Christianity were not compatible, that he experienced imprisonment and torture for his beliefs. After serving five years of a second prison sentence, he was ransomed for $10,000. His colleagues in Romania urged him to leave the country and work for religious freedom from a location less personally dangerous. After spending time in Norway and England, he and his wife Sabina, who had also been imprisoned, emigrated to America and dedicated the rest of their lives to publicizing and helping Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. He wrote more than 18 books, the most widely known being Tortured for Christ. Variations of his works have been translated into more than 60 languages. He founded the international organization Voice of the Martyrs, which continues to aid Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith. (via)

This information comes from the son of Richard Wurmbrand-

Michael Wurmbrand  

Michael Wurmbrand: I had the recent opportunity to consult over 8,000 pages of declassified documents from the former Romanian Communist Secret Police (“Securitate”). I found undisputable proof the Romanian communists decided and planned to carry on the Wurmbrand assassination.

Following is a translation of a partially reproduced, communist secret police document describing such a seven-point plan to kill us. I wrote also a discussion of matters I learned from these documents of importance to those interested in helping the victims of communist oppression. If you loved and respected the Wurmbrand family, if you were inspired in your life by any of the Wurmbrand books and activities, please give this document the widest possible circulation among your circle of friends. You will see by reading this document, you will arrive to a different understanding on protecting yourself and your loved ones.

Here is the 7 point plan

that was to be carried out against the Wurmbrand family:

Wurmbrand Deplasare lui Galaxia

Finding a way to assassinate Wurmbrand in „Galaxia” (code name for USA)

1) Sending a (secret police) officer to ”GALAXIA” with the mission of studying and creating possibilities to act against “ASHAVER ( Richard Wurmbrand, NT).”

(GALAXIA was the secret code name, used by the communist information services at the time, for the United States, NT) 

Wurmbrand Ion Pescariu

“ in order to establish through (our) agency (embassy, NT)

• The activities schedule, routes (taken) means of transportation, places visited, persons close to him.  Since “ASHAVER ( Richard Wurmbrand, NT)” allows visits at his home, we will use this opportunity for the penetration by an officer or collaborator to give us a proper description, with the scope to annihilate him through some means corresponding to the concrete existing environment. Accomplishing term (of mission): September 20th 1974

Responsible (persons for the plan:) Lieutenant Colonel Pescariu Ion, Lieutenant Colonel Grigoriu

Wurmbrand Elias

informants „Veron” and „Elias”

2) Through our informers “Veron” and “Elias” (obviously code names, NT) we will establish the travel schedule for the next 3 months of “ASHAVER” (Richard Wurmbrand, NT), trying based on this, to find out the country offering best opportunities for carrying this plan. “Based on such data, (one of our) officers will travel there to study the local environment (halls where conferences are being held, probable places he eats or dwells) taking special measures to place a poisoning means in the bed he will sleep.

“ Accomplishing term (of mission): September 10th 1974

Responsible (persons for the plan:) Lieutenant Colonel Pescariu Ion, Lieutenant Colonel Grigoriu D.

3) Since “ASHAVER’s (Richard Wurmbrand, NT)”s (books) are published by a religious publishing house in Geneva (Switzerland), visited by him (in his travels,) through the informer “HERMANN”

(obviously a code name, NT) we will find out details re. the building, the employees, access paths, when is he likely to travel to Switzerland, in order to use such information to act (on this plan.)

“ Accomplishing term (of mission): September 25th 1974

Responsible (persons for the plan:) Lieutenant Colonel Pescariu Ion, Lieutenant Colonel Grigoriu D

4) Since October, this year, “ASHAVER (Richard Wurmbrand, NT) is scheduled to travel to Israel, therefore with the help of informer “EREMIA” (obviously a code name, NT) we will establish the cities where he will travel, the halls where he will hold meetings, persons accompanying him, places of meals and hotels in order to prepare the conditions to act upon him. If these measures in that “actionable space” will be approved, an officer will be placed there to carry on the actual plan.

“ Accomplishing term (of mission): October 10th 1974

Wurmbrand Securitate document

The Securitate’s accusations against Wurmbrand

5) Recently obtained information shows that “ASHAVER (Richard Wurmbrand, NT)” has involved in his activities his son, an engineer (by education), living in (IC, unclear abbreviation, might mean within the radius of the Romanian consulate, NT) and he visits him from time to time. Through the posibilities of the conference holder “ABAR” (probable code names for the local consulate of Romania on the US west coast and its consul, NT) we will find out his dwelling address and his activities, in order to analyze any opportunity given to act upon him when visiting there.

“ Accomplishing term (of mission): October 1st 1974,

Responsible (persons for the plan:) Lieutenant Colonel Pescariu Ion, Lieutenant Colonel Grigoriu D.

“6) We will study using an experienced person, in whom we could have full confidence, who, against a corresponding payment, will insure the destruction of “ASHAVER (Richard Wurmbrand, NT.)”

“7) We will take corresponding measures to implement a device, capable of an explosion obtained from a distance and of a chemical substance, ICE (code name of the substance, NT) to be used to destroy him.

“ Accomplishing term (of mission): October 10th 1974,

Responsible (persons for the plan:) Lieutenant Colonel Pescariu Ion”

    A godless and murderous regime! This post awakens a holy anger in me… under the category „be angry but do not sin.” The same system that has harassed my grandparents and my family over the issue of the Gospel, and the issue of having connections with brethren in the West was murdering men of God in prisons and in other places! 50+ years of persecution!!!

      What is amazing is that after all they did do Wurmbrand for 14 years, now they wanted to take out his entire family? I mean, even Sabina was imprisoned for some years and their son was left fending for himself and it wasn’t enough for them?

      But, it all comes down to the fact that they blamed Wurmbrand’s testifying in front of Congress (1966) about his ordeal, for the failure to obtain the ‘favored nation’ status from the United States for 8 years in a row.

      We will be coming up with more details on this in another post as soon as we finish our research.

      What is so intriguing is to see God’s hand at work in protecting the Wurmbrand family and keeping them safe, while all around them spies, it’s like they were jumping right out of the novels, were trying to plan their demise. It shows God’s power and sovereignty, in that a whole government can be planning a child of God’s demise, yet God will not allow them to touch one hair on their head, if He so wishes.

      I hope you are sharing your family’s story with the youth, they need to learn about that part of our heritage and hear those stories of faithfulness, both from God towards his children, as well as our brothers’ and sisters’ faithfulness to God under hard circumstances.
