WRITERS AND INTELLECTUALS

People Who Make Us Proud*

Alexander Meilechson

Translated by David Goldman

        The generation whose lives and creations we record and memorialize is no more. We are the “last of the Mohicans.” Our generation and the coming generations have to know how Bessarabia's Jews lived and created, and how they were annihilated and destroyed. We have to transmit our history and way of life to our children because it is their history from Yedinitz. As banal and unpopular it may seem today, in our new understanding about events and issues, there exists the same requirement of “Thou shalt teach it to thy children” – the same Torah and path to salvation today as was then.
