(Czernowitz, 14.10.2013) Irv Osterer from Ottawa in Canada wrote on July 4, 2013: "I am new to the Czernowitz List and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. Has anyone posted anything about Stanesti[e] de Jos? It was my grandfather's birthplace. I have yet to find anyone who has visited there." Just in time for my ongoing journey, Jerome Schatten published "A Memorial by Irv Osterer" on Ehpes a few days ago. Reasons enough for me, to make a side trip to Nyzhni Stanivtsi.
As a matter of fact, the Jewish cemetery, adjacent to a psychiatric clinic, is overgrown to the greatest extent by dense undergrowth and the vast majority of the headstones is non-accessible.
