By the way and in the course of her research, the prominent art historian and former director of the Czernowitz Art Museum, Tetyana Dugaeva, showed up an art forgery which slipped in even into our Czernowitz Art Gallery. As a matter of fact, Berthold Klinghofer’s “Czernowitz. Ringplatz” from the year 1911 (at the top) found its counterpart in Victor Volkov’s copy (at the bottom). Excellent detective work!

ibidem: From summer 1941 onwards, Romania actively pursued at its own initiative the mass killing of Jews in the territories it controlled. 1941 saw 13,000 Jewish residents of the Romanian city of Iai killed, the extermination of thousands of Jews in Northern Bukovina and Bessarabia by Romanian armed forces and local people, large-scale deportations of Jews to the camps and ghettos of Transnistria, and massacres in and around Odessa. Overall, more than 300,000 Jews of Romanian and Soviet or Ukrainian origin were murdered in Romanian- controlled territories during the Second World War. In this volume, a number of renowned experts shed light on the events, the contexts, and the aftermath of this under-researched and lesser-known dimension of the Holocaust. 75 years on, this book gives much-needed impetus to research on the Holocaust in Romania and Romanian-controlled territories [Table of Contents].
