Sad news indeed. Last week,both Yakov Bunka in Plunge and Boris Steinas in
Siauliai passed away. Yakov Bunka was the last remaining Jew in Plunge and
did many things to honor and keep alive the memory of the Jewish
communities in Plunge and the surrounding towns.
Boris Steinas was the Chairman of the Siauliai Jewish Community and a real
leader and pillar of the Jewish community. About 200 Jews live in Siauliai
today and they have lost an exceptional leader.
May both their souls rest in peace.
