During the communist times, this great palace was used as an orphanage.

I think it actually was a "school for children with special needs", meaning school for handicapped children (I guess with all the problems of the past regime associated with such an institution - I hope I am wrong).

QUOTE (Constantin Isarescu)
. On 28, 29, 30 May 1944 we and the Germans have tried to take the Russians out of their positions. Our attack area extended from Ungheni to Tārgu Frumos. Our objective was to get the Russians down to Jijia. We have even managed to repel them over the Prut. On the other side, from Tārgu Frumos to Piatra Neamţ, our offensive did not succeed



That's about all :( I need to find detailed info about such operations.
Was there any big operation on starting 22nd june 1944 put up by the soviets ? (on the Moldova front ofcourse)

The only big operations were the Battle of Targul Frumos and the Jassy-Kishinev offensive. The rest were just local attacks.

As I read about Iasi-Chisinau offensive I notice that in August the frontline from the Axis pow was better then in may - it was further north on Bahlui river (between Munteni and Carpiti), how and when did they improve that frontline ?

Also, I am trying to find Tartasesti which is suppose to be in the middle of romanian 6th army corp (where the soviets managed a deep breach during the August offensive), was not able to find it on my maps and neither in Encarta. Anyone knows where this village is ?

Does anyone have the OOB of the Soviet armies of 2nd Ukrainian front facing Moldova on 20 - 23 August 1944?

Also, an OOB of the German 6th and 8th Armies during the same period of time would help.

Thanks in advance.
