Abstract
The year 1952 represents for Romania a climax of export Stalinism, a moment when the power of Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej and of the commmunist leaders’ group around him was established.
The collectivization of agriculture, the development of socialist property, the adopted repressive laws, the Party plenaries and the conferences of certain important professional sections of the society generating new people, the successive trials and sentences, as well as the Soviet Constitution of 1936, evidenced in the 87 articles of the Romanian fundamental Law of September that year, are the achievements of the totalitarian regime, which had managed to annihilate the course of Romanian democratic history and to forcefully trigger the process of alienation of citizens deprieved of real rights. The authors present the main events in the People’s Republic of 1952, trying to capture both the power struggle within the party and the drastic diminuation of private property.

Keywords
