Bauska Memorial

Yehudi Gaffen, CEO of Gafcon, has been working to build a Holocaust memorial in Bauska, a town in southern Latvia where his family’s roots stretch back to the 1750’s. In the summer of 1941, his grandparents, great-grandparents and a handful of other relatives along with 830 Jews were all marched to the woods and shot by Nazi forces and their local collaborators. Gaf sits on the founding committee to raise a memorial monument to celebrate the memory of Jewish people that once lived and thrived in the town. He leads the memorial’s coordination and fundraising efforts.
