With my friends Petra and Achim I will be on the road again; we are an experienced travel team and have already been to Ukraine and Romania together. This time it is the north of Moldova that attracts us. From 20 March on we will explore in Bessarabia what is still visible of the Jewish heritage. If you have recommendations, please do not hesitate to let me know!
As with other trips in the past, I did some research in advance. Helpful were the report “Jewish Heritage Sites and Monuments in Moldova” by the United States Commision for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, the website of the Jewish Museum in Kishinev (Chişinău), “Like Shells on a Shore” – a beautiful book by Simon Geissbühler, the JewishGen website and some other online ressources.
As always, I will try to report day by day during the trip at the Vanished World blog. Stay tuned, share your suggestions, let me know if you recommend contacts and locations, and keep your fingers crossed the gods of the internet may be merciful.
