For Those Who Won the War

Over 200 people gathered on a warm Sunday of May 6 to take part in the festive event dedicated to the Victory Day. The program for veterans, former ghetto and concentration camps prisoners who are unfortunately less and less every year was full of emotions, nice music, touching words and waltzing with grandchildren... Art groups members, young people from KJJC youth clubs behaved and spoke with the veterans of the war with deep esteem and gratitude.

“Almost all the families, especially Jewish who live in Moldova, suffered from the horrors of the World War II. About 350,000 Jews perished on the territory of our country. It was a really awful tragedy. That is why it is so important to remember it and thank those who made our lives possible”, said Zoya Apostol, KJJC PR-manager.

“We are so thankful that you remember us and invited to such a wonderful program”, told 85-year old veteran. “For us such days mean nostalgia about our young years in spite of the war and also proud for winning in that bloody battles over Nazi”.

The program was organized by the JCC KEDEM with support of “Hevruta in Moldova” project.
