After the dictator Ceausescu has demolished the Vacaresti area (an ancient monastery - sec XVIII - and a whole neighborhood of houses - around 200 ha) in order to build another lake, the works begun with digging the pit and a few years later were stopped. Since then the pit remained untouched (25 y). Many poor families (mainly gipsies) have found shelter there. Almost all children were born in the pit.
