BITOLA, Macedonia - It can be easy to miss, tucked away on the outskirts of this town, where 70 grand mosques pay more obvious testament to the Turkish past. But plans are under way to revive a key symbol of Macedonia's Jewish past - its 500-year-old Jewish cemetery. The burial site, together with a single memorial to Holocaust victims, is all that remains to pay homage to Bitola's vibrant prewar Jewish population. Bitola's 3,200 Jews, its five synagogues and its Jewish school disappeared as a result of the Holocaust.

Yesterday, Alihodzic, 20, was one of dozens of disabled Bosnians who benefited from a shipment of 240 wheelchairs from the Wheelchairs for the World Foundation.
