The Thanksgiving Candle

By Linda Tancs

In the Soroca district of Moldova, a monument is built on the rocks over the Nistru River. Named the Candle of Gratitude (or Thanksgiving Candle), it pays tribute to all of those who made heroic efforts to preserve the country’s culture, language and history through the generations. At night the candle’s light can be seen from Otaci in the North and Camenca in the South.
