The Memorial House from Moisei

judetul Maramures, Maramures

AddressLoc. Moisei,

Description

The Memorial House of Moisei illustrates the sad episode from Moisei when, on October 14, 1944, in this house the Hothy partizans assassinated 29 Romanian patriots. The memorial house was inaugurated in 1983. With help from the documents, photographs and personal objects that belonged to those killed, this sad episode happened in Moisei can be presented to the visitors.

Committed in two houses from the outskirts of this place, on the main road leading to Borsa, the victims of the massacre at Moisei were counted at 31 dead, of whom 24 were born in Mures, 3 from Cluj County and 4 from Maramures County.

Most of those who were incorporated in these units of force work, and in the conditions of the advancing of the allied military forces, all of them have deserted. They tried to cross the front line and return to the place of the residence. Some succeeded, others, among those which have been killed in Moisei, were caught by the police front and imprisoned in a makeshift camp in the house of a Jew deported to the Nazi death camps.

The people imprisoned in the camp in Viseu de Sus, on October 14, 1944, were transported to Moisei and shoot through the doors and windows in the two houses. The corpses were buried two weeks after committing the massacre, when local people, evicted by the authorities, returned to their homes. The wooden crucifix was erected above the common grave, and was replaced after several years with a stone obelisk.
