From the Dolhinov guestbook: "… the old Jewish cemetery in Dolhinov. There are many generations of Jews, our ancestors, who were buried there. Also most importantly our parents, sisters, brothers and cousins who were murdered by the Nazis and their assistants-- some of our gentile neighbors, are all buried there. The cemetery is open on all sides. There is no fence around it. It is overrun with weeds, plants and bushes that reach the height of a tall man. None can enter to observe the graves. Cows, pigs and sheep wander through freely. Jews who went to visit the cemetery were shocked and extremely upset by the shameful and terrible neglect. A few of us, natives of Dolhinov in Israel, have organized a working committee in order to 1. Clean the cemetery area. 2. Put a fence around the cemetery. 3. Renew the headstone for the memorial for the few thousands of Jews who perished in Dolhinov during the Holocaust and later were buried in one mass grave by their few Jewish brothers and sisters who survived. Our aim in writing this letter is to collect funds in order to carry out this sacred task. … We have received practical proposals from a Jewish building contractor in Minsk … You could send your checks to one of the following address: Arieh Rubin, 25 Raines Street, Givataim, Israel.
