Northern Transylvania Holocaust Memorial Museum in Şimleu Silvaniei, Romania

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our first day in Şimleu Silvaniei, Romania, we visited, among many other things, The Northern Transylvania Holocaust Memorial Museum.  besökte vi bland annat museum. The old synagogue of Şimleu Silvaniei was erected in 1876. The synagogue was used by inhabitants who lived in close settlements but in May/June 1944, the area’s Jewish population was forced out of their homes into the brutal Cehei ghetto and from there packed into cattle cars and transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Over 160,000 Jews from the region perished.

Our talented guide told us stories and this visit here completed and live-made the visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau, which we did with just a few days before…
