Hi Mimi and All!
I believe that the plaque should be in three languages - and I'm convinced that the municipality can accept this request - thus reflecting the very dense history of the city: Ukrainian, because it is today in Ukraine; Rumanian, because Traian Popovici was Rumanian and his deeds were during the Rumanian rule; and German, because of the old and long Austrian rule and of the fact that the Jews he saved spoke German. Most (if not all) Jews in Cz spoke that language, whereas Yiddish was more spoken in smaller towns and Shtettls of Bukowina.
As for the text itself, let's mix both proposals you have by now: "Mayor of this city in 1941: he was a righteous man who saved 20,000 Jews"
