The War in August, 2008. The eyewitnesses are telling. Olga Siukaeva

Siukaeva Olga Aleksandrovna, 1969 d.b., an inhabitant of Tskhinval

I live on Heroes Street; this is one of the main streets of Tskhinval where the fights between the Georgian soldiers and the local boys have been taking place during the August war of 2008. On the night of August 8, about 12 o’clock the war has started. Terrible explosions have been resounded; one could not describe all horror which I have suffered that moment. Fear has seized me; I lost my head and instantly fell down on the floor. I was with my elderly mother at home. I have crawled to her room; it was terrible even to lift a head. My poor mother was sitting in the corner, trembling with fear. We have hardly gone down into the cellar, becoming weak in the knees.

The chance unique for six hundred years

The visit of the South-Ossetian journalists to Israel at the end of May - the beginning of June, 2011 had the purpose of promoting the development of bilateral contacts. It`s not a secret that the Jews are connected with the capital of the RSO Tskhinval in many respects. According to some information there is the most ancient in the Caucasus synagogue here.
