Abstract
This paper surveys some Romanian science fiction works written during the Communist regime. In spite of unrestrained imagination assumed by science fiction, there are significant patterns peculiar to concentrationary universes. The plots are set in enclosed spaces, the other is usually seen as an enemy, the characters play the victim or the perpetrator part, while the entrapment and dehumanization are the frequent features of the future societies. These imaginative works blur the frontiers between literature, memory and history, offering information about the ideological imaginary of the period
