Jurnalul călătoriei lui Alexandru Lapedatu spre Paris (decembrie 1918), pentru participarea la conferința de pace de la finalul Primului Război Mondial
The text below is the first published edition of Alexandru Lapedatu’s notes during his trip to Paris in December 1918. Lapedatu, the Secretary of the Commission of Historical Monuments, had authored several memoranda on Romania’s aims at the coming peace congress, and immediately after Germany’s capitulation, he was appointed a councilor to the Romanian Legation to Paris. In December 1918 Lapedatu left Bucharest together with a group that accompanied Prince Nicolae (on his way to Eton), and Lapedatu took daily notes of his voyage. His journal captures his desire to get relevant information about the political situation of Europe and his struggle to contribute to the coordination of different national groups that acted to secure Romania’s interests at the coming Paris Peace Congress.
