Summary

Rabbi Tzirlson, born 1859, was the main rabbi of the city of Kishinev. He was also a senator in the Romanian parliament between the years 1920-1926. He quit in 1926 due to Antisemitism. When Serbia was annexed to the Soviet Union the Soviet newspapers presented Rabbi Tzirlson as an anti-Soviet agent. The rabbi was killed during WWII (1941) when the Germans dropped an air bomb on Kishinev. His final resting place lies underneath a huge memorial erected over the graves of those killed during the Kishinev Pogroms.
