Working towards Reconciliation: A Christian’s involvement in Jewish cemetery restoration

  1. The Germans were not the only Shoah perpetrators. Local allied Axis countries, army and police also participated some with enthisiam more than others. The end result was the wipeout of whole communities as early as 1941 that lived there for centuries.
    GONE..Nobody lives there, nobody remembers. But the cemetery is evidence of that a community once lived and contributed to all the region. Schools, hospitals, stores, businesses, professionals, music, science and arts.
    On a ROOTS trip to Romania and Moldova in March 2017, I came upon upon a cemetery the likes I have never seen in EDINET(z) in N. Rep of Moldova.
    Sorry, I cannot upload pictures here.
    Besides my father being deported to a Labour camp there (surprisingly) surviving I have no personal connection to that place.
    There is no one left to take care of that cemetery. Any ideas or help will be appreciated.
    Thanks

  2. “Reconciliation” is OK with Germans and individual collaborators, not with “Christians”. Holocaust was not “Christian”, it was Nazi German with a small % of collaborators (Jewish, Chrstian, Muslim and others).
