The locations of Jewish heritage sites in Ukraine were conveyed to Anatoly Viktorov, the Russian ambassador to Israel, on Wednesday by Yaakov Hagoel, the president of the World Zionist Organization (WZO).
This initiative was taken in order to anticipate the damage that could be caused to these sites by the Russian military.
Ukraine is indeed home to very important heritage sites of the Jewish cultural and religious heritage. Among them are memorial sites and monuments to the victims of the Holocaust, such as those in Babi Yar, Lviv and Donetsk, Jewish cemeteries, synagogues and graves of important Jewish figures.
The map transmitted to the Russian ambassador was created as a result of a field survey specially conducted by the WZO.
It showed that a number of sites have already been damaged, and many are at risk of collateral damage due to the fighting raging in some parts of the country.
Anatoly Viktorov said that he would forward the document to Moscow as soon as possible.
« As a national organization of the Jewish people working for the sustainability of its existence and heritage, we must do everything in our power to preserve these sites for future generations, » Yaakov Hagoel said.

The scaffolding finally removed, the superb restored wall of the church of Saint-Pierre de Sous is open for all to see.
A remarkable work when we remember the state of this wall of some 184 m2 which was badly damaged even 1 month and a half ago. When the mason updated this stone wall of the Adour, the Mayor and the elected officials of Souess immediately took the decision to highlight this heritage that tells so well the history of the municipality.
On old lithographs dated 1425 and 1543, the church already appears in the village. The old bell tower, demolished in 1863, will be rebuilt in 1864 and the first restoration of the church dates from 1875. This means that this building is part of the heritage and has punctuated for centuries all the happy or unhappy moments of the life of the inhabitants of the village.
The current restoration gives a very special light to the church that can be admired as soon as you enter the heart of the village.
Wherever you come from, you can only be seized by the light that now emanates from this alignment of bricks and pebbles from the Adour that form this proud facade. Recall that since the Concordat (1802) the churches belong to the municipalities and that the restoration of these buildings is their responsibility.
Now it is a question of continuing the restoration by the facade wall and the church hall but we have learned that the steps are already underway to include this project in the 2023 budget. Note that the current restoration has benefited from a state grant that the municipality had requested.
A big congratulations for this remarkable restoration and noticed by all.
