The former Dacia Flour Mill
2 Niciman Street
On Niciman Street, at no. 2, there was the Dacia flour mill, where over 100 Jews, mill workers, and family members, mobilized to forced labor were rescued during the Pogrom by the director Profir Grigore. On June 29, 1941, convoys of Jews were escorted to the Police Headquarters. When they reached the flour factory street, soldiers entered the yard of the mill and asked to gather the Jews. Risking his life, the director of the mill, the engineer Profir Grigore, confronted the soldiers and refused to send them in convoy.
Profir Grigore also rescued Jews from deportation to Transnistria, supported the Jewish community with food and medicine, and until 1944 helped orphans and widows who survived the Pogrom.
In November 1991, the Yad Vashem Institute awarded him the title of "Righteous Among the Nations" because he risked his life during the Holocaust to save Jews.
