2. Per Olof Ekstrom
Per Olof Ekstrom (1926-1981) was a very important swedish writer. His masterpiece is the novel Sommardanser (1949) which became One Summer of Happiness movie (1951), the movie winner of Golden Berlin Bear, Berlin International Film Festival (1952). After a long illness Per Olof Ekstrom died in Romania in 1981, being cremated at Cenusa Crematorium in Bucharest.
The romanian poet Florenta Albu described this moment in his diary, entitled Zidul Martor. Also, Florenta Albu was cremated latter, but all the time when I'm thinking to Florenta Albu I'm so very impressed by one of the title of her book, namely Shade Burnt. This title was like a premonition of her own's cremation!

PS. I'm so glad for my list of Famous Cremated Romanians. I hardly worked on this always having into my mind some famous words of soviet writer Maxim Gorky: "There are only two forms of life: decay and combustion. Cowards one will choose the first one, brave and generous people on the second! "
