New article by Milàn Czerny for Shomrim

‘Zhenya, Dina and their two young children were murdered on October 7, but buried outside the cemetery. Why? Because Zhenya, who served in the IDF and immigrated to Israel more than 30 years ago, wasn’t Jewish enough for the burial society. The same thing happened to 21-year-old Alina, who was murdered at the Nova music festival just a few months after completing her military service. Immigrants from the former Soviet Union are no longer willing to remain silent in the face of the discrimination and humiliation they experience in their most anguished moments’

St Antony’s/RESC alumnus Milàn Czerny investigates the family who were ‘Jewish enough to be murdered, but not Jewish enough to be buried inside the cemetery’. The article can be accessed here
