<FONT face="Times New Roman" size=4>As I see that there still is interest
in traveling to the places of our, or our familiesorigin in nowadays
Ukraine and Romania I would like to share my experience from such a journey.
First, a few words of precaution. If you do not have enough satisfactory
information about the places you're going to visit, and if you don't have a
reliableperson there to receive and guide you -<U>travel onlywith an
organized tour.</U> </FONT>
<FONT face="Times New Roman" size=4>I had my own special reasons for making
this trip. One: to find any possible information in the archives about the
families of my grandparents; <U>Leon-LeibWolf from Czernowitz,and
his wife Anna-Chana Neid from Molodia; </U></FONT>
<FONT face="Times New Roman" size=4><U>Isidor-Srul Ruhm (Nuhemowski) from
Colomea and Suczava and his wife Rebeca-Babale Weiner from Strojinetz</U>. The
second reason was, that I wanted to visit the locations and a site in
Transnistria where my parents and I were deported from Czernowitz during WW2.
The site I wanted to find in particular was called "Cariera de piatra" (Stone
Quarry). In this deportation camp theconditions werespecially grim
and, harsh, and many people lost their lives there. The mainproblem was
that this siteis located in a remotelocation on the shores the
southern Bug river (about 400 kilometers from Czernowitz). The main city in this
district is Vinitsa. Together with two other "Landsmen",who wanted to
reach the same districtwe succeeded in finding in Vinitsaa small
transportation business owned by a Jewish family by the name of Podolisky. We
made contact with this family andthey tookon themselves to pick us
up from the Kiev International Airport, make for us lodging arrangements in
Kiev, and Vinitsa. They also also located, andtook us to all
theplaces we wanted to visit. At the end they took me to the "Cheremosh"
hotel in Czernowitz (Chernivtsi) where I had an arrangement with a local guide
(Zoya), and they took my friends across the border to Suceava, Romania
(Imade this trip "leg"on my own). All this for half a dollar per
kilometer.It is hard to describe the hardemotional experience that
such a trip into the past causes, itwas not easy, but to day I can say it
was worthwhile.</FONT></BODY></HTML>
