According to what Radu Ioanid writes in his book
"Holocaustul in Romania" there are various estimates
as to the number of Romanian Jews killed in Transnistria.
According to one estimate 87.000 Romanian Jews and
130.000 local (Transnistrian) Jews died in Transnistria.
According to another estimate, 155.000 Romanian Jews and
115 local Ukrainian Jews died in Transnistria.

There are Romanian reports according to which in Sept. 1942,
90.334 Jews from Bukovina had been deported to Transnistrtia
and 19.089 had not been deported. But the deportations continued.

As Elie Wiesel writes on the back of the book; I translate:
One has to have much strength to read this book from
the first page to the last.
