My ancestors who survived the genocide and were buried in the main cemetery with all the rest of the townsfolk: Abram Rakhmielovich Gurevich and his wife Mariya Davipovna Gurevich.  This may very well be a Great Uncle of mine, my grandmother’s brother, maybe cousin.  Good to see that he doesn’t have any religious insignia on his gravestone.  Apparently he married a non-Jewish woman, judging from her name.  Good for him.
