Neculai Bolohan is an archeologist at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University’s Faculty of History in Ia?i. He specializes in Romanian Prehistory and Southeast European Bronze Age cultures. As an archeological expert, he has contributed to a number of Holocaust mass grave investigations directed by Adrian Cioflânc? and commissioned by the Elie Wiesel National Institute. At Vulturi Forest (Popricani) near Ia?i, excavations revealed bodily remains of 36 Jewish men, women and children murdered by the Romanian army in June 1941. The case was investigated by the Romanian Military Prosecutor and gained – as a Holocaust Killing Site on Romanian soil – considerable public attention. Victims’ remains were reburied in the Ia?i Jewish cemetery in 2011.
