just got back from kiev, ukraine where i had my very own Everything is Illuminated adventure. here’s a short video I took from New Viledniki, Ukraine (a small village about 2hrs outside of Kiev).  this is a 500 year old jewish cemetary, where my great great grandfather is buried; however, i did not actually see my great great grandfather’s gravesite b/c everything is so old, destroyed, and there is so much vegetation growing over most of the tombstones.  The tombstones where the inscriptions have not yet worn away are the newer ones, WWII casualties.  I saw one that read:  “killed by fascists” from a death in 1941.
