Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: This document comes from the Bukovina region, and includes signatures and seals from 1941, 1942 and 1943. Bukovina is a region on the northern slopes of the northeastern Carpathian Mountains and the adjoining plains. It is currently split between Romania and Ukraine. Almost the entire Jewish community of northern Bucovina was destroyed by the deportations to the death camps over the Dniester river. Despite his promise that he would treat Jews from territories not occupied by the Soviets differently, Romanian leader Ion Antonescu ordered the deportation of Jews also from Suceava County. Consequently, in 1941 and 1942, 21,229 Jews from southern Bukovina were deported.
