You're reading: Remains of Jews killed in WWII buried in Romania

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — The remains of dozens of Jews killed by Romanian troops during World War II have been buried in a Jewish graveyard in the eastern city of Iasi.

The daily Eveniumentual Zilei reported April 5 that seven rabbis from the United States, Britain and Romania took part in Monday afternoon’s ceremony.

In November, a Holocaust-era mass grave containing the bodies of an estimated 100 Jews was discovered in a forest, offering further evidence of the country’s involvement in wartime crimes. Women and children were among the victims killed in 1941.

Romania’s role in the Holocaust remains a sensitive and highly charged topic. Under communism the country largely ignored the involvement of Romania’s leaders in wartime crimes.
