He is happy who forgets what can no longer be changed.

We cannot change what did or did not happen till now.
Let's concentrate on what we can do now and in the future.
We can have a commemorative plaque to Traian Popovici put up.
BUT... The language should not be provocative and the facts
Should be accurate to the extent that they can be verified.
In the meantime let's wait for the answer from Mr. Kylynych.
Please vote on the suggested inscriptions.
So far only 5 people have voted.

As to a street named Popovici, there was a street named
Elena Popovici, a continuation of the Strada Dimitrie Petrino,
in German Armeniergasse. I do not know who Elena Popovici was,
or what the name of it is now.
Keep in mind that the name Popovici among Romanians
is as common as Cohen among Jews.
