Three generations of the Zundelevitch family >from Jurbarkas unveiled a
remarkable memorial to the Jews of Yurburg this July 2019 in
Lithuania. Two excellent descriptions can be found at
https://www.newartistscollegium.com/synagogue-square-memorial and also
at https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Memorial-to-Jewish-community-unveiled-in-Lithuanian-town-596364.

More than 2000 names have been carved in stone, literally, in the
central square of Jurbarkas where once stood the main shul of the
town. The family, all born in Vilnius and now living in Israel
conceived of the idea together with sculptor David Zundelovitch
leading, his children Gregory Zundelevitch served as art director, and
Anna Zundelovitch, architect and designer; third generation was
represented in singing the national anthems of Lithuania and Israel.
