Bessarabia SIG Winter Symposium:
  • History, Genealogy, Culture. 13-15 December 2022. The Bessarabia Special Interest Group (Bessarabia SIG) and JewishGen invite you to participate in a Virtual Winter Symposium, a series of live, online presentations to run from December 13 through 15, 2022.
    Sessions will explore historical experiences of our ancestors in Bessarabia, assist your family research, and expand your understanding and appreciation of their culture.

    You will meet presenters from Canada, Germany, France, Brazil, Moldova, Ukraine, the United States, and perhaps others. Presentations will delve into ideas and issues that are relevant not only to Bessarabia but also to other regions.

    If you would like to present a talk during the Symposium, please submit a proposal no later than September 1, 2022, to Yefim Kogan at yefimk@verizon.net

    The detailed schedule is going to be added in the end of September.

  • Cemeteries, we are getting more photos from Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, but the condition of the cemetery is so horrible, that it takes very long time to get to every grave. Our photographers are working now on Sector 3 and 7. After these are done, there are going to be sectors 8 and 9 left, which are in very bad shape too.

    We got photos donated from Klishkivtsy (now Ukraine) Old Jewish Cemetery, and also I found a person in Ukraine, who will go soon to New Jewish Cemetery in Klishkivtsy and photograph all the stones. They may need to use chainsaw, other tools to get to every grave. The condition of the cemetery is not good. I will keep you posted.

  • Addition to section History of Jews A great 17 minutes film 'Jewish Painters about the Shtetl' (in Russian with English subtitles). Click to watch the film. Project of the International Cultural Center 'Israel-Belarus' and the editorial staff of the magazine 'Mishpoha'.

    A 15 minutes documentary film 'Formula of pogrom' in English. Click to watch the film. Author Arnold Brodichansky.

    Another great film 'Where is my home?..' dedicated to Bessarabian Jews (in Yiddish). Click to watch the film. Author Arnold Brodichansky.
