May 16-22, are the dates the Jewish community of Sighet was deported to Auschwitz.

Over the six days 15,000 Jews – elders, women, children and man were loaded in the cattle trains where they found their destiny. Most of the young or old mothers were sent directly to the Gas Chambers as they came off the trains, and so did all elderly man and women.
