MEMORIAL UNVEILED FOR UKRAINIAN JEWS MASSACRED IN HOLOCAUST

The headstone was placed over a mass grave for 1,200 men, women and children killed in Sadigura.
In 1842, Rabbi Yisroel Friedman, known as the (Heilger) Ruzhiner Rebbe, relocated his hassidic court to the town, then part of remote Bukovina in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. By the early 20th century there were between 3,000 and 5,000 Jews living there.

Although the dynasty’s leader Avrohom Yaakov Friedman (1884-1961), the third Sadigura rebbe, fled to Mandate Palestine in 1938, several thousand Jews remained in the shtetl. Most perished in the Holocaust.

Today the hassidic group is centered in Bnei Brak.
