Royal Resident and prosecutionedit

After his election as a National Renaissance Front counsellor in 1939, that February he was named Royal Resident of Ţinutul Suceava, with a residence at Chernivtsi His programme, presented upon his installation, foresaw:

  • The raising of living standards for the peasantry, then suffering severe economic times
  • The maintenance of public order, in the context of two growing threats: the Iron Guard, and Bolshevist agitation coming from across the Soviet border

After the Soviet ultimatum of June 1940, Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina were incorporated into the USSR On June 28, 1940, twenty-two years after the Union championed by Iancu Flondor, another Flondor implemented the act of cession, completing his term in Vatra Dornei During World War II, Gheorghe Flondor helped save the lives of 12 Jewish families2

After leaving Northern Bukovina, Flondor quit politics entirely and settled in Sibiu, where in 1945 he divorced his wife Four years after the Republic was proclaimed, in 1952, he was arrested, being tried publicly in 1956 and sentenced by the Military Tribunal of Region II to 10 years' hard imprisonment According to C Al Racovitza and Mihai Pânzaru the regime went after him because he had been a Royal Resident3

During the trial, twelve Romanian citizens of Jewish origin from Siret went to the State Notary of the former Siret Raion, Suceava Region, and signed a declaration affirming that "during the racial persecutions, Flondor had a fair, democratic and well-intentioned attitude toward the Jewish population, helping it at critical moments in relation to the racial persecution against the Jews by the fascist authorities" However, the tribunal did not take this declaration into account

He was freed in the general amnesty of 1964, already a sick old man Having been deprived of all his property, he was also forbidden from taking up residence with his last living relatives, in Bucharest He died in that city twelve years later
