Jews gathered on the west bank of the Dniester River before their deportation to Transnistria, across the river in western Ukraine. In June 1941, Romania occupied Transnistria, and in September, began deporting Jews there from Bessarabia, Bukovina and northern Moldavia. Over 400,000 Ukrainian and Romanian Jews incarcerated in concentration camps and ghettos in Transnistria were shot to death, or perished there from starvation, hypothermia and disease.
