Şimleu Museum

We are pleased to include a section acknowledging the very positive developments in

Simleu-Silvaniei through the creation of the Northern Transylvanian Holocaust Memorial

Museum, under the direction of Daniel Stejeran (Director).

After many years of hard work by many people and associated generous financial

contributions the Museum opened its doors to the public in September 2005. It is not

only a museum with exhibits about the Holocaust it is an educational centre and a

place for holding multi-cultural events.

It has ambitious plans to cover the impact of the Holocaust across the whole of

Northern Transylvania.


We suggest that anyone in Oradea or surrounding areas who is interested in the

Holocaust in Northern Transylvania should browse the Museum website and pay them a

visit (the Museum is open most days).
