RUSSIA : Jews Omitted From Holocaust Site Plaque In Rostov-On-Don.


      Though more than half of the 27,000 victims murdered by Nazis...in August 1942...at Rostvov-on Don...were Jewish...a new replacement plaque there...fails to mention it.
     The massacre at Zmiyevskaya Balka is conceded as the worst holocaust in Russia.
     The new plaque only describes victims as the "peaceful citizens of Rostov-on-Don and Soviet prisoners of war..."
     The omission is upsetting the RJC/ Russian Jewish Congress.
