Descendants of the region of Bukovina's Jews are trying to make their history known and appreciated. One crowning effort was the opening, a few years ago, of a tiny museum of Jewish culture that is filled with artifacts, photos, and other documentation. (AP Photo/Frances D'Emilio)


The Associated Press has an article on Chernivtsi, in the heart of Bukovina. Bukovina spans both the Ukraine and Romania. Its Jewish population was exterminated for all intents and purposes during World War ll, but there are remnants.


The article talks of the story’s author visit to Cernivitsi. The article includes several photos including several from the Jewish cemetery.
