Paupers' Cemetery

Cemetery in Sighetu Marmaţiei

Many of the 53 political and religious prisoners executed in the prison that now houses the Memorial Museum to the Victims of Communism and to the Resistance were buried without markers in this cemetery, which is also called the Necropolis of the Tombless. Climb the modern tower to view the map of Romania traced out in hedges and trees. The cemetery is about 2.5km west of the centre.
