Bessarabia SIG #Bessarabia Kishinev Jewish Cemetery news #bessarabia
I am writing about Jewish Cemetery in Kishinev, the largest remaining Jewish
cemetery in Bessarabia/Moldova.
You remember the story that the Prime Minister of Moldova "...demanded a
plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev".
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.
Here are the other news - the work was done formally, in a rush and many
tombstones were damaged!!! Here are couple of photos with recently damaged
Now, I am getting information that there will not going to be 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...
A number of people working for JewishGen Bessarabia SIG are photographing
the tombstones at this cemetery. One of them is Sergei Daniliuk who made
these photos. I may put more online for your view.
If you have issues seeing the images, or questions, please email me at
