Collection(s)The house-museum is situated at the end of Moisei commune towards Borşa. Here, on the 14th of October 1944, 29 Romanian peasants and 3 Jews from Mureş, Cluj and Maramureş counties were killed by Hungarian retreating troops. They were guilty only for wanting to reach home where their families were. The victims belonged to the forced labour teams. They were forced to enter the house and were shot through the windows under the accusation of being partisans and obstructing the retreat. They were buried after two weeks and later on, a monument was erected on the place of their burial. The monument of Moisei is the work of the sculptor Vida Géza (1913 - 1980). It shows a circle of 12 stone figures, two of them with human faces and ten wearing traditional masks from the area. The exhibits include personal belongings and photographs of the victims.
