The study, based on published and unpublished documents, analyses the dynamics and dimension of the Soviet military occupation between 1944 and 1949, in the city of Craiova. The military occupation knew two periods: the first stage (September 1944 – May 1945), when the occupation appears to have a provisional character, and the second stage (1945-1949) marked by a massive military presence. In 1949 the withdrawal of the Soviet troops put an end to a severe and oppressive occupation, for the residents of Craiova.
