Vasile Odobescu (born Cuizăuca) was a founder and leader of the anti-Soviet organization Democratic Agrarian Party.[1][2]

Biography

Vasile Odobescu was born in Cuizăuca, a locality in the north of Moldova. During the Soviet deportations from Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina, his parents and his sister were deported from Moldovan SSR (Bessarabia) to Siberia.[3][4]

In 1950 he founded the Democratic Agrarian Party, one of the largest and best anti-Soviet resistance organizations in rural areas of the Moldovan SSR.[5] The leaders of the party were Vasile Odobescu and Simion Zlatan (born in Popenchi, Râbniţa). The Democratic Agrarian Party was active between 1950 and 1953.[2]

In 1953, Vasile Odobescu and other important members of the party were arrested. In 1953, Vasile Odobescu and 10 other party members were sentenced to death.[6]

In a book printed in 2000, the historian Ion Ţurcanu wrote the chapter "Vasile Odobescu, a soldier of the disinherited people" (Romanian: Vasile Odobescu, un ostaş al dezmoşteniţilor).[1]
