Homorodu de Sus

judetul Satu Mare, Maramures

AddressLoc. Homorodu de Sus,

Description

Situated near the top of Homorodu forest, the village Homorodu de Sus is located 27 km from Satu Mare, on the county road 130A on the Valley Homorod, at the northern limit of Codru area. According to the 2002 census, the total population of the village was 2030 people, which, except for 20 people, were of Romanian nationality. In 1941, there were 84 Hebrews in the village, of which most were deported in 1944.

From the administrative point of view, the town consists of the villages: Chilia (280 inhabitants), Homorodu de Jos (366), Homorodu de Mijloc (center of - 476), Homorodu de Sus (305), Necopoi (255) and Solduba (348 ).

The settlement from Homorodu de Sus – “Ograda Borzului” was investigated between 1966-1967 by Tiberiu Bader who found in the early Neolithic certain settlements (Starcevo-Cris culture) and from the early Eneolithic (Tiszapolgaa culture) at Lunca being noted the large number of anthropomorphic figurines and also an altar from the early Neolithic.

The first written mentions of the three Homoroade dates from thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, namely in 1273 ( Homorodu de Jos and Homorodu de Sus) and 1394 (Homorodu de Mijloc). During the Middle Ages, Homoroadele have the same history. Since the fifteenth century, all areas are acquired by the Karolyi family, the family that brought in the village settlers from the county Pozsony.

The area without prospects of agricultural development has made the 40 families brought here, not to settle with the mountain area. In this sense they gradually left the town. Their place was taken by a German population of Baden area, who managed to turn the City into a thriving settlement. Part of the German population was deported to labor camps in the USSR after the Second World War, and the rest returned to their country of origin.

Homorodu de Mijloc is the native village of the writer Otilia Marchis (1873-1951). She lived a long period in Paris, where she met Rodin, Brancusi, Monet and was Anatole France's personal secretary. Those who visit this area can see: the Roman Catholic Church from the Homorodu de Jos, built in 1808, proof of the large German community that once lived in this village; the Orthodox churches from Homorodu de Jos (dating from 1988), Homorodu de Mijloc (1910) and Homorodu de Sus (1885).
