Maramureş, monumentul eroilor de la Moisei - Maramureş, the monument of the heroes of Moisei

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Monumentul eroilor de la Moisei a fost ridicat de Vida Geza, in memoria martirilor din Moisei ucisi de trupele horthyste in retragere. Monumentul cuprinde 12 figuri de piatra (2 chipuri omenesti si 10 masti traditionale maramuresene).

La data de 14 octombrie 1944 trupele maghiare aflate in retragere pe Valea Izei au omorat 39 de romani si 3 evrei in doua case de lemn de la iesirea din comuna Moisei catre Borsa, pe motivul ca ar fi fost partizani si ca ar fi obstructionat retragerea. Romanii si cei 3 evrei au fost fortati sa intre in case si apoi au fost impuscati prin ferestrele locuintelor.

The monument of the heroes of Moisei was high by the sculptor Geza Vida, in memory of the martyrs of Moisei killed by Horthy troops who were retreated at that time. Stone monument includes 12 faces (2 human faces and 10 Maramures traditional masks).

On 14 October 1944 the Hungarian troops retreating Iza Valley killed 39 Romanians and 3 Hebrew in two wooden houses from leaving the common Moses to Borsa, on the grounds that they were partisans and that withdrawal would be obstructed. Romans and the 3 Hebrew were forced to enter in houses and then were shot through the windows of houses.
