Goberman has been photographing tombstones of the XVIII - early XX century in the Jewish cemeteries of Ukraine and, after the war, Moldova and Western Ukraine. For several decades, he managed to capture and describe the hundreds of carved tombstones at existing and abandoned Jewish cemeteries of the former Jewish towns in Bessarabia , Northern Bukovina and Eastern Galitsii, Moldavi, Chernovitskoy, Ivano-Franskavskoy and Zakarpatskoy regions of Ukraine. The Jewish populations of these villages were destroyed during the war, and most photographs and information about the graves were subsequently destroyed. Therefore, Goberman's collectiom of negatives is unique. In addition, as in Soviet times, the publication of such materials was not possible. David Goberman was actually the first to undertake a systematic study of the graves. However, to publish these photos was only possible in recent years (1990-2000). Bilingual editions of albums of these photos, with annotations, were published in both Russia and the United States: Jewish tombstones in Ukraine and Moldova (1993); Carved Memories: Heritage in Stone from the Russian Jewish Pale ( Carved in memory: heritage in stone from the Pale of Settlement, 2000); The Forgotten Gems: Jewish Tombstones XVIII - early XX century in the Republic of Moldova (2000); The Jewish Tombstones in Ukraine (2001). An exhibition of 70 photographs from Goberman's collection were exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Museum from January to April of 2000. Similar exhibitions were held in Chisinau, Kie , St. Petersburg and Moscow. The Goberman Archive of more than 2,000 negatives was organized in the US by Kenneth A. Pushkin and Anne Sommerfeld Halliwell." (adapted from https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/ ,_ _ ).
