Israel-Russia. The ceremony is dedicated to Leonid Buber, hero of the former Soviet Union.21 2011
electronic media, most people of the Jewish community have been informed, that in
Russia, in the Israeli Center
for Culture of the Israeli embassy, and in the “Givat ha-Tachmoshet” national
memorial complex in Jerusalem
would be held an opening ceremony for a memorial plaque. The plaque is
dedicated to Leonid Buber, hero of the former Soviet Union.
Leonid Terushkin, head
of the archive of the Russian Research and Educational Holocaust center, held a speech about the life of Buber in Moscow.
When he was still a young lieutenant, he already fought in the finno-soviet
war. As of his extraordinary deeds he was awarded with the title “Hero of the Soviet Union”. This is especially interesting, because
during this war, nearly no decorations were given. Later on he served in the
“Great Patriotic War” where he fought in the battle of Orel-Kursk, for which he
gained the “Red Star” of the Soviet Union.
After the war, Leonid
Buber managed to escape Stalin’s repression through working in the Jewish
Antifashist Committee of the Soviet Union.
There he worked until he retired and died in 2005.
In the end of 2005,
the Russian Research and Educational Holocaust Center
published unique photos between 1930 and 1990, which so far had been stored in
an archive in Lithuania.
The photograph were sent to Ljubov Leonidovna, daughter of Leonid Buber.
During the ceremony
for Leonid Buber, lectured the director of the „Givat ha-Tachmoshet“, Shimon
„Katscha“ Kaganer, who is a former officer. He, who had fought in many wars,
stressed the importance of the plaque, as Leonid Buber is a Jewish hero and
idol which helped him through all the battles he had been in. Under the
participants of the ceremony were many prominent people of the public life, as
for example Kirill Rabin, head of the youth organization NDI and the spokesman of
the Union of World War II Veterans David Tribelskij.
Tribelskij stressed in
his speech the importance of remembering Leonid Buber, as until now, only few
veterans knew about the „Hero of the Soviet Union“.
In consequence, the Union of World War II Veterans decided to appoint Buber
posthumously as honorary member of the Union.
Tribelskij also mentioned, how Israel’s
attitude towards Jews of the former Soviet Union
had changed. Some time ago, they were only fewed as victims of the Holocaust,
but the young people nowadays rather few them as those who marched against Berlin. Therefore the
memorial plaque is an important step, because it honours those who fought in
order that Israel
once would be.
