About Sófalva

The autonomy of Szeklerland was restored in the Stalinist Romania for its main part belonged to the Maros Hungarian Autonom Territory which was stopped by Nicolae Ceausescu in 1968. At the same time, unfortunately, the independent community status of Felsősófalva was also stopped, when, together with Alsósófalva and Békástanya it was attached to Parajd, ceasing thus its independence of many centuries and making its development impossible. The leader of the independent community functioning until 1968 was the judge (Parajdi Mózes was the last), later the first person of the village was called "president". After the ceasement of community status Felsősófalva was represented in the leadership of Parajd community by the "village responsibles".
