Germany for research, memorials and award ceremonies; the over 1,200

Re: a simple question #hungary

G. C. Kalman
 

Dear John and Siggers,

There was a Hungarian film entitled Tutajosok - "tutajos" is a word for
lumberjacks who use the river to transfer the logs.

Zguritsa #bessarabia

Iris <shihova@...>
 

Dear colleagues,

I wonder if we have here anybody with a special interest to Zguritsa.
I am worried with the news >from there: the building of the former synagogue
is for sale and, very probably, for demolition. The building is in
private ownership and in disrepair.

I informed already our Jewish newspaper, and Agency for inspecting and
Restoration of Monuments, etc, and now we are monitoring the situation.

Bur every cloud has its silver lining: I contacted Zguritsa mayor,
and he is very interested in the Jewish past of the village (or at least
speaks so).
They organized recently a kind of a small museum in the City Hall,
where Jews are presented too modestly, in spite of their historical role,
as Zguritsa had been founded as a Jewish agricultural colony.

today! You are continuing to help with the uncovering and preservation
of our Litvak genealogical heritage.

To all of our readers, whether or not you've donated to the Continuity
Fund or not, we appeal to you to "spread the word" to any of your
family or friends who may be able to help support us!
