Quote from: JBS on September 16, 2023, 12:17:41 PMIt's my understanding that Ukraine's Jewish population in the 50s-80s included a large number of Jews who moved there from other parts of the USSR for career or other similar reasons at various times after 1945.
Quote from: JBS on September 16, 2023, 12:29:37 PMWikipedia presents a slightly different picture: Odessa after being captured by the Germans was placed under Romanian administration. At first the Romanians co-operated in massacres and deportation to the death camps (the article refers to German participation in the massacres), but once the Germans started losing on the Eastern Front, they stopped that and kept the Jews locally for forced labor. As a result, Odessa's Jews had a higher percentage of survivors compared to Ukraine in general.ETAReading the USHMM article, it seems the Wikipedia presentation presents the Romanians more favorably. Main difference in presentation of facts is that it doesn't mention the deportations to Transnistria or the 1943 massacres.

Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 21, 2023, 02:05:49 PMI can't see much of the article, but I remember another poster bringing up this subject with a link to an article. From what I remember, the money was to be used to recreate a couple of earlier works for a Danish museum...a fairly small one (museum).If you can't access the Fortune article, here's one that you might be able to: https://edition.cnn.com/style/jens-haaning-kunsten-take-money-run/index.htmlPD
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 21, 2023, 06:22:27 AMIt's nice to see that someone's willing to take the risk to put in some high-speed trains in the US. I just wish that the Feds and maybe state governments would too; as far as I know, there's only the one run by the Feds (between Boston and Washington). Cool that it's also running on bio fuel.PD

Quote from: JBS on September 21, 2023, 06:08:25 PM... Finally, as a local, I want to point out Brightline's record of fatalities, and that it uses the same set of tracks as Amtrak's passenger service, yet Amtrak's service never had anything approaching the rate of deaths Brightline has.
