Rostov-On-Don: Video, Zmiyv



"The Zmievskaya Balka massacre was a forced march of 27,000Jews in Rostov, Russia, including women and children, as well as many Soviet citizens. On August 11-12, 1942, the victims were marched to a ravine at the edge of the city, and there they all were murdered. This year [in2012] some 500 Jews--many wearing armbands bearing the Star of David--marched on Rostov-on-Don to honor the memories of of the dead, accompanied by a police escort...Prior to the march...[Rabbi Lau, currently the Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv] visited the burial place of Feodore Mikhailchenko, the Gentile man who took the little Jewish boy under his wing in the Buchenwald death camp, and saved his life."
