The project represents the proposal of an "Educational and Research Center for the Jewish heritage of Northern Transylvania" in the former Jewish quarter and ghetto area of Satu Mare city in Romania. Studying the city, its history, the architectural and urban context, I came to the conclusion that there is a very important part of them that has been forgotten, namely the Jewish identity that played a major role in the development of the city until 1944.

The proposed project wants to take a first step towards updating this theme by creating a space that not only houses all the materials, but also offers the opportunity to learn and research in an active and contemporary way.

The diploma project seeks to regain the identity of the place and urges passers-by to reflect, bringing to the public's attention the issue of the untapped Jewish heritage in the city. Both the location in the heart of the Jewish quarter, as well as its role as the last place of hope before the Holocaust, underlie the fact that this place has a certain obligation to serve as a space for learning and renewal.
