Dear Researchers,

I am not sure if you get this email, but I want you to know the situation at the Jewish Cemetery in
Kishinev, Bessarabia/Moldova.

You remember the story that the Prime Minister of Moldova "...demanded a plan to restore the
Jewish cemetery in Kishinev", and I should tell you that there are good news, but also very bad
news >from that cemetery:

The cemetery was cleaned up in the fall of 2018, and you can see >from a photo how large is
the cemetery, and as people on the ground are saying, it was cleaned up.

Aerial view:

The bad news are that a number of tombstones were damaged.

Now, I am getting information that there will be no construction of a new building at the cemetery
(museum or so), but there is going to be build a memorial probably to the victims of the Holocaust...

If you have issues seeing the images, or questions, please email me at
