Jewish Cemetery in Roshkoshne, Ukraine Preserved

 

On August 11, 2016, the Jewish cemetery in the village of Roskoshne in Stavische, Ukraine was rededicated after a Commission project erected a wall around it and cleaned up the burial ground. The project was funded due to the efforts of Commission Member Richard Weisberg. In the photograph immediately below, the mayor of the village reads the plaque on the wall while Weisberg stand to his right.
