Mapping and Protecting Moldova’s Jewish Cemeteries @ Zoom

Mapping and Protecting Moldova's Jewish Cemeteries @ Zoom | Bentonville | Arkansas | United States

Online symposium hosted by the European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative ESJF in which experts on the Jewish heritage of Moldova, along with leaders from the Moldovan Jewish community, will discuss the findings from the ESJF survey pilot project and their implications on the future of Moldova’s Jewish cemeteries. 

Working under the framework of the European Commission-funded pilot project, “Protecting the Jewish Cemeteries of Europe”, ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative mapped and surveyed 1,500 Jewish cemeteries across 5 European countries between 2018 and 2020. Prior to this project, there was no comprehensive list of Jewish cemeteries in the Republic of Moldova. However, with the cooperation of the Jewish Community of Moldova and the Moldovan Ministry of Culture, ESJF has compiled the first full catalogue of Jewish cemeteries in the country.

In doing so, ESJF has not only verified the existence of these sites, but has highlighted their vulnerability, with many found to be demolished or at risk. With these findings, laid out in the ESJF Country Report on Moldova (https://bit.ly/3hMGrZm), we can now explore the best avenues for protecting these valuable sites, whether through physical fencing measures, education programmes, or an emphasis on local authority action.
