Photographer's Note

A little piece of Jamaica in Romania taken by a Pole. A funny picture but a sad story attached:

This one was shot in a blocks quarter close to a giant monument (so-called Aiud Calvary) commemorating victims of the strict Aiud prison. During the dark communism era many people lost their lives in the cells of that prison. They were buried in unknown places in suburb areas and nobody really knows how many people have been murdered in the prison. Generally victims were young people - mostly students - who dared to stand up against communist regime after the WW2 and later.

It’s not so easy to find the monument as it is situated at the very fringe of the town. I’ve been circling around the town trying to find the place but all in vain. The man who helped me was Istvan Balog, the president of Aiud’s Inter Art Foundation. He said:
- All right man, jump into the car and we will get you over there.
And that was that. Guys of the Inter Art lifted me up there.

Remember: In case of any tourist trouble in Aiud - find Inter Art and don’t hesitate to ask for help. Open-minded foundation people will surely help you.

The address: Piata Cuza Voda 1, Aiud.
