Romanian term or phrase: Vapniarka
We are translating a Bulgarian movie for an international film festival. We have some problem with how to pronounce some pronoun and some meanings. Can you help me?

Vapniarka : I assume it used to be a horrible camp or getto. How can I pronounce it?
Rabnita : name of city. How can I pronounce it?
Moghilev : name of city. How can I pronounce it?
"Porto scrisori" : Does this mean "published for the first time"?

Explanation:
First of all, I would like to note that the names cited DO NOT appear to be typically Bulgarian. Is the movie eventually about Bessarabia or Moldova? Anyway, pronounciations in bulgarian will read:
[vap'njarka],
['rabnita]
[mo'gilev].

Good luck!
