Several people have written to me about the song "Mein Shtetele Belz," so I am replying publicly about that. I know that song well and love it too. However, although it has come to be associated with "my" Belz, the one in Galicia/Poland/Ukraine, it was apparently originally not written about that town at all, but about Beltz, now called Balti, in Bessarabia/Moldova.
My question remains: Does anyone know of any documentation of the graves in the Belz (Ukraine) Jewish cemetery, other than the famous rabbis' graves?
All the best,
