Establishment of Monument at Destroyed Jewish Cemetery After Trip To Czernowitz

This past May, my wife Rachelle and I visited the town and village (Mostyska,Rudnyki) where her mother’s family lived and unfortunately many members of the family died during WWII.

The region is approximatelyone hour west of Lviv. With the help of  Serhiy Bilichenko, who acted as our guide and facilitator, we found the destroyed Jewish cemetery of the area. Serhiy was instrumental in enabling us to place a monument on the site (photosattached).  He made numerous trips back to the site and persevered until the monument was in place. His righteous behavior deserves to be recognized.  We are forever appreciative to Serhiy and others who helped make this possible, including the mayor of the town, the town attorney, and the monument builder, aswell as individuals in the area who have cleared the site of weeds.
