The Jews of Sighet
Jews settled in the idyllic town of Sighet Marmatiei, located in the region of Maramures, in the 17th century. Over the course of the 18th, 19th and early 20th century, the Jewish population of Sighet grew and constituted the majority. About 20,000 Jews lived in Sighet proper, and many more in the surrounding villages. While most of the Jewish population was engaged in petty trade and crafts, after 1860 it became possible for Jews to own land and timber, and a considerable number worked in the lumber industry.
Sighet was located in a geographically isolated region surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains where the forces of modernization were slow to arrive. Culturally and economically, the Jews in Sighet and Mármaros County resembled the Jewish populations of many shtetls in eastern Europe, where religious Orthodoxy, folk beliefs and Hasidism predominated. Legend had it that the Baal Shem Tov had assigned “the handsome garden” of Máramaros to Koppel of Kolomea, whose descendants, the rebbes of Kosov and later of Vizhnits, came to view the county as their fiefdom.
Today there live about 100 Jews in Sighet.

The Children of Maramures
Peter Riley
A wooden bowl full of blue and red berries, fresh from the bushes beside the roads, washed of petrol stains. Take it: love with reason, their eyes say, therefore hope, without reserve. Take the gift, accept the reason, lever our hearts over the barricade with an explanation.
The children stare wide eyed at the strangers and smile for ever. The day moulded out of light, the mutual seed, springs open in time it costs nothing but persistence. A linking gesture across the border holds the ring dance open to        the hearth, where the old ones sit.
Wisps of blue smoke rise from the houses into the distance. The true moment moves among us, everyone’s work as it works everyone’s fault as it fails, held in the song’s return, a hope balanced on a point of flesh against fate’s gerrymandering, everyone’s wish in your tear ever shining
And stabled there. Politicians and clouds brush the fine heads of the children turned upwards; a laugh, short and light, rolls down the land, a reasoned hope in which they turn in the dance, hand on sleeve: Welcome welcome, bird in the bush, fish in the flood, futureless presence ringing the earth.

The Happy Cemetery, Săpânța, Romania.
Tumblr media
I still haven’t read about this place’s history, and I’ve got to, it’s so weird in the best way possible. Every grave has a beautifully painted cross (in a naive style, but it’s really really charming, the silliness adds a lot) depicting the person resting beneath living their life as well as a poem.
Tumblr media
The church itself is so so pretty and colourful too. Big art inspo tbh, I’ve seen like a billion Orthodox monasteries (therefore churches) and I’ve got to say this might be one of if not my favourite! The exterior architecture is really unique, seen a lot of churches, I do know a bit about which style is which and in what region it’s TRENDY but this, can’t place it.
Tumblr media
Didn’t pay much attention inside, I’m not wowed by it tbh, your average Orthodox church. It’s a bit excessive I’d say… but that’s basically any church they’re building these days…
Tumblr media
Some of these poems can be pretty funny. I’ve been holding my tears pretty hard tho (>>sad tears. They are are equally sad as they are silly)

I’m gonna be honest. This was my first time shooting mountains in the distance. The misty air made it somehow magical. Either ways, hope you like it guys! 🌲🍂

MARAMURES - Where time has no end
“The Land of Wood” it was once called, and with good reason. Around 1900 about 90% of the whole Maramures region was still covered with forests. Today this small enclave in northern Romania is one of the most isolated regions of Europe and, and even within the country is considered to be poor and backward. It is said that the clocks here measure not time, but eternity.
