Illustration for article titled Is this the ghost of a Romanian woman tortured to death by communists?

A woman in Braila, Romania, claims she managed to snap the picture of a ghost with her cell phone. It was hovering in a house that was once a commissary station where communists tortured political prisoners.


Romanian publication Astigan reports:

Manuela Chirosca, a local security worker was guarding an old building, no. 29 on Ana Aslan Street, constructed in late 19th century. She was doing routine checks of the house two days ago (July 19). "It was about 7 AM when I was doing the morning tour of the house. I had a strong feeling that I am not alone," she told Jurnalul National.

"I was going for the window of a room which was probably a bedroom or something like that. I approached the window and then I saw a tall feminine shape that seemed wreathed in a white veil. My first reaction was to get back and run away as fast as I can!"

It is exactly what she did. Wouldn't you? But then she took a deep breath, calmed down and went back in the room. "Fear made me feel sick, but then I thought there's nothing that could possibly happen to me and I could not miss the chance to take pictures," Chirsoca told the Romanian newspaper. She took up her mobile phone and photographed the blurry shape. "I had to take several pictures because the shape was moving from one place to another." . . . House no. 29 on Ana Aslan Street served as a stock exchange market before the Great War. It was busy with people interested in agricultural products, especially in grain. After the Second World War, the building was transformed in a commissary station. The communists would torture and murder political opponents in its basement. Perhaps because the building has its own dark history is why Manuela Chirosca believes that it is the Ghost House of Ana Aslan Street.
