On September 9, Dr. Altman spoke at a memorial ceremony in commemoration of
the 70th anniversary of the massacre of Jews in Mineralnye Vody where thousands
of evacuated Jews from almost all regions of the USSR lost their lives.
The monument site was prepared by members of regional Protestant organizations in the framework of the project "Restoring Dignity." Dr. Altman confirmed that the regional authorities agreed to mention the nationality of the victims on the memorial plaque and expressed his expectation that this would occur before the next anniversary.
