MOLDOVA AND UKRAINE: HOLOCAUST IS OUR COMMON PAIN

A report on conducting International Scientific-Practical Seminar for secondary schools teachers.

 

Many Ukrainians associate the following with contemporary Moldova: perfect wine, bright sun and beautiful ladies. That is surely true and nothing seems to remind us of the far-off War that burst out 69 years ago. Very few Ukrainians are familiar with the history of our neighboring country during the Great patriotic War and know the fact that there were over 250 ghettos and concentration camps on the territory of this small country. In 19411944 600 thousand Jewish people were murdered by Nazis there.

 

And only after some decades is memory of these innocent victims perpetuated.

 

 

 

 

 
OPENING OF BEIT GRAND JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER IN ODESSA

 

It is common knowledge that Odessa has always been considered as a Jewish capital of both Russian Empire and Soviet Ukraine. Undoubtedly, nowadays the city of Dnepropetrovsk claims to be a Jewish capital.

 

The two cities are united not only by their Jewish status. Tkuma Center works in close partnership with many organizations of Odessa, including the recently established Center for Holocaust Studies at Odessa Jewish University, a very interesting Migdal Shorashim Museum of Odessa Jewry and an actively developing Beit Grand Jewish Community Center. Beit Grand hosted a very important event, bringing together friends of the Jewish Community Center from different cities and countries as well as city and oblast authorities (it should be mentioned that the mayor of Odessa is Eduard Gurvits, a famous politician), the heads of Claims Conference, JDC and other Jewish Organizations.
