Before the Holocaust, Jews were the largest or second largest ethnic group in Lviv (Lemberg), Chernivtsi (Czernowitz, Černivci), and Chisinau (Kishinev), having a significant role in all fields of daily city life. These traditionally multi-ethnic cities, today belonging to Ukraine or Moldova, were included in the Soviet Union from Poland or Romania after World War II. The present city environment still strongly reflects the Jews and other vanished population groups. What about the future? This is a challenge for urban planning and preservation policy, which will be addressed in Bo Larsson's lecture.
