20 Year Commemoration of the Liberation of Romania from the Fascists

Flag_of_Romania_(1952-1965)This is yet another commemorative issued by the Communist government of Romania. It seems that all the Warsaw Pact countries continued to stamp out these medals at regular intervals. Perhaps to rub it into the West that they had played a large part in Germany’s defeat. As a side note, since the Romanians spent most of the war under the Axis perhaps this medal could also be described as commemorating 20 years of subjugation by the Communists?
