Description

Elie Wiesel Memorial House was inaugurated on July 29, 2002, in the historic center of Sighetu Marmatiei. The exhibits presented in Elie Wiesel Memorial House are formed out of impressive collections of religious objects, furniture and photographs and other objects of the Jewish community in Maramures.

In 1944, Wiesel family among other 38,000 Hebrews in Maramures and Sighet were deported by the Nazi and the Horhy forces in "death camps": Auschwitz, Birkenau and Buchewald. Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace prize laureate, Doctor Honoris Causa member of 55 universities worldwide, essayist, playwright, novelist and memoirist, is one of the best known keepers of the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust.

His name was engraved in 1986, on the Statue of Liberty, along with 11 other immigrants in the U.S., to commemorate 100 years since the location of the statue in New York.
