Александр Исаакович Гельман, российский драматург, писатель, сценарист, публицист, общественный и политический деятель, родился в 1933 г. в Дондюшанах, Бессарабии (тогда Румыния, теперь Молдова). Когда летом 1941 года началась война, Дондюшаны, к тому времени входившие в состав присоединенной к Советскому Союзу Бессарабии, были оккупированы румынскими войсками, союзниками фашистской Германии. Евреев города собрали в колонну и депортировали, под конвоем румынских солдат, на восток, через Днестр. По дороге умерли новорожденный брат Александра Володя и бабушка Цюпа.
