VISEU DE SUS
A small Jewish museum/permanent exhibit, with panels in Romania, German and English, opened in 2011 in one room of the wooden house near the train station (now a cafe) where sawmill-owner Alexander Elefant, the last Jew residing in the town, lived. The house is also used as a cafe. The project was carried out by Migu Schneeberger, a Swiss researcher and photographer.
