"Sabia Dreptăţii" was discovered by the NKVD in 1947, based at the Pedagogical Lycée (former Ion Creangă Lycée) in Bălţi.[1] For one year, Ion Moraru was imprisoned in the same camp at Ekibastuz with Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.[2]

Ion Moraru later became a well-known anti-communist in Bessarabia (now the Republic of Moldova).
