A letter from mayor of town in Moldova - Volontirovka #bessarabia #ukraine
It looks that JewishGen is not only looked by Jews, but not Jews too. I received an email from the mayor of a town in Republic of Moldova.
He looked up a Cemetery report for town of Volontiri (Volontirovka) we added to JOWBR in 2019! This is not the first time I got emails from local officials about the cemeteries.
Here is the full Mayor letter:
Dear Mr. Yefim Kogan,
I am the mayor of Volintiri (Volontirovka, Stefan Voda, Republic of Moldova).
Recently I have found, by chance, your report about the Cemetery of Volintiri written in 2019.
Unfortunately during Soviet Union period it was destroyed and only some stones are left as you have mentioned in your paper. It is a pity, because human beings deserve to be respected even after death despite their nationality and religion.
If it is possible could you help me find some funds to arrange a commemorative stone and a bench in that place, to honor the people buried in this cemetery.
r. Ștefan Vodă
