Pumpenai: 11 GGParents

A town with ancestral roots going back to 1700’s. Check Michael’s history of each town if it interests you. 


We walked around to see some remaking Jewish buildings. 




and the mill built and used by the Jewish community. 


Then on to the Jewish cemetery to pay ou respects to our ancestors. 


It was right on the highway, but we hiked back to get a good look. Unfortunately we don’t read Yiddish, so we left stones all over.  



And we paid our respects to the slaughtered, most likely included many of our cousins. 





Over 4,000 at this and another mass grave nearby.
