Eli Wiesel / Sighetu. In memoriam

We did not plan it. No one could plan it. Yet, a regular trip has turned into a symbolic tour through Transcarpathia. Day after Eli Wiesel passed away we have visited his home town and a place of birth, Sighetu Marmației. A black flag is hanged on his family house. Gates to the Jewish cemetery, usually closed, stood open and inviting.

The rain was over and the grass was gently wet as morning dew.
