Little Lives Lost

Transylvania held so many people. Many of them worked as farmers and craftsmen and other "small" trades.

They lived hard lives and simply wanted to live and work and hope for a better life for their children. This often did not happen...

What did was many children some who would die and some who would live. Many women married young and the men would work in the farms or the cities and pay high taxes.

Such ran the life of the people who lived without much education or many rights.

Many people forgot them after a few years after they died. Yet they still created a life for their children and grandchildren and generation after.

In many ways much like it is today and much like ti will always be... yet...

many of the cultures of Transylvania are being lost because the Hungarians and Saxons and other groups left.

More memories and lives lost.
