Two short stories about cremation

From a long time I have been on my mind to post here two short stories about two famous cremated persons born in Romania. Maybe many people already knew about it:

1. Benjamin (Barbu) Fundoianu (Benjamin Fondande) (1898-1944) - Romanian and French poet. He was cremated at Auschwitz into gas chamber after he refused to be liberated from camp without his sister.
2. Albert Wass (1908-1998) - Hungarian poet. He and his father were sentenced to death in absentia in 1946 for killing some Romanian peasants during The Second War World. Wass commited suicide in 1998 in United Stated but his urn was placed in Transylvania. It was big scandal in Romania of those times due to this event.
