In 1911 in Șimleu live 1444 Jewfishes and in 1944 a number of 1500 which are deported. The synagogue built in 1876.

Hecht Zoltán survived the deportation and after the war he came back home but afterwards he emigrated in America.

After the Revolution the Romania had retroceded the land and the synagogue which was on it. Today their son, Dr. Alex Hecht administers the inheritance. With the help of more organizations, Claims Conference as well, in the synagogue was arranged a holocaust museum.

The projects do not stop here because the transformation of the synagogue into a cultural centre is intended. One of those who supports the idea is Elly Berkovits Gross another survivor of the holocaust and the one who wishes that through this museum to present to the young where can hatred between men leads. From the gathered donations the interior of the synagogue will be soon rebuilt.
