About this title


An account of Holocaust events in Transistria, a region in Romania that no longer exists on the atlas but nevertheless houses the cemeteries of thousands of murdered Jewish men, women, and children. Shachan combines his own personal experiences in the Ukrainian death marches with meticulous research, chronicling the events leading to the murders in Bessarabia and Transistria, the organization of life in the ghettos and camps, Jewish leadership and organizations, and deportation and immigration to Israel. The author concentrates on central questions during the course of the volume, attempting to ascertain whether the Romanian authorities planned the mass murders in advance, how many died there, and what precipitated the local populace's hatred against the Jews with whom they had lived for hundreds of years. Distributed by Columbia University Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
