Harry Bolner travelled from Odessa, Ukraine, west to the Republic of Moldova and Transnistria (formerly Bessarabia), and to Romanian Moldova in the northeast. He will share what happened to the Jewish communities of the area, its cemeteries, and the locations of concentration/forced labour camps. After looking at Romania’s role in the Eastern European “Holocaust by Bullets” and the War, Harry will speak to the current state of local Jewish communities, cemeteries, and memorials. He will specify how to search documents in Romanian National Archives, and detail sources consulted prior to and while travelling. Sadly, there will be no Romanian strudel.
