Nurit Naeh – Visit to Czernowitz

Shown here is a photo of Nurit Naeh at the Czernowitz Jewish Cemetery, May 2017. Nurit writes: “I succeeded to find the gravestone of  my Grandfather’s (Carl Schafer) sister, Marie Schafer in the Jewish cemetery, and their house in Frazengasse 23 as well. Attached is a photograph of me near Marie’s gravestone.”

Gravestone of Marie Schafer, sister of my grandfather, Carl Schafer.

Memorials in Israel

Several cemeteries in Israel include memorials to the holocaust often related to individual towns or regions of Europe. A number of years ago, I visited such a memorial to the Jewish community of Radautz, Bukovina.

Harry Bolner visited two other memorials in the Haifa Cemetery, shown here (Dorohoi-Radautz-Transnistria Memorial – photo supplied by Harry Bolner via Merle Kastner):


Nearby, one can also find a memorial to the Pogrom in Iasi:

Thank you to Harry Bolner for taking the two photos above and sharing them with us.

Merle Kastner has done extensive work documenting burials in the Jewish Cemeteries of Montreal.  A memorial to the holocaust in Bukovina can be found there at the Baron de Hirsch Cemetery (photo courtesy of Merle Kastner):
