This stuty has two fundamental aims. First of all, I tryed to emphasize the profound sensitivity of the Transylvanians to the significance of the Romanian village in the history of the Romanian people, as seen for example by poets and writers such as George Coșbuc, Octavian Goga, Lucian Blaga, and Liviu Rebreanu. Secondly, the study presents the hard period, through which the Romanians from the Northern Transylvania, namely the Bârgău Valley, passed. In this exposition I will highlight elements about country life in the Romanian village of Bârgău between tradition and survival, as well as the atrocities that the peasants and the intellectuals of the Bârgău Valley had to endure during the period of Horthist regime. Also in this regard I will describe the massacre that took place in the town of Prundu Bîrgăului on the night of October 10, 1944. Regarding the Romanian village of Bârgău I will briefly emphasize the personality of the confessional priest Augustin Pop, who, according to the say "œman sanctifies the place", was a blessing for the people from the village of Bârgău Mijlocenii Bârgăului, but also for those from the neighboring villages.
