Anti-Communist Resistance Monument

Between 1945-1966, the romanian intellectuals from the interwar period, officers of the royal romanian army but also the simple peasants who were considered enemies of the new totalitarian regime were exterminated in detention camps. At the entrance of the “Simion Bărnuţiu” Central Park, the architect from Cluj Virgil Salvanu, built a monument dedicated to the victims of the anti-communist resistance, which was unveiled in 2006. It is made in the shape of a concrete cube covered with white marble, but the names of the cities where the concentration camps from the communist period existed are covered with black marble.
