Their Legacies Remain...
Most of the Jews of Bălţi were murdered: public figures, bankers, rabbis, teachers and their students, traders and craftsmen – men, women and children. Their stories are told through documents, testimonies, Pages of Testimony and photographs – testimony to the destruction of the community of Bălţi.
Each name, each family, represents an entire universe, filled with history and memories. Here are the stories of Yeshayahu Tumarkin and Lazar Lubarsky, Prisoners of Zion from Bălţi – and the story of a special song of that time that became famous across the Jewish world.
We see their faces, document their names and reveal their stories, and that is how we commemorate them.
"The people are no more – but their legacies remain…"
