subject[belarus] Visit to Belarus and Ivie

I visited my grandmother's shtetl in Ivie yesterday. Although she left
in the 1880s, it was still a moving experience. There was a memorial
outside the city where the Nazis gunned down the town's Jews in 1941.
Before then the town had been 78% Jewish.
If you're going to Belarus, make sure to get "healthy insurance" for
about $7 before you go. It's available in Lithuania and must also be
available elsewhere. We didn't know about this and as a result customs
officials pulled us off the train at the Lithuania-Belarus border.
Heroic actions by our guide salvaged the situation.

Rabbi Chasman

From: Rena W. Shankman
I found many Leibmans on the
Ivye Yitzkor book. I only have the names of my gggrandparents
Raphael and Shifra Leibman, their five children and grandchildren. There
are 4 to 5 generations both in U.S. and Israel. From naming patterns I
estimate Raphael died before 1889 and Shifra before 1900. Shifra may have
been a Chasman since their oldest son was well-known Rabbi Yehuda Leib
Chasman who served in various communities before immigrating to Israel. He
was at the Hebron Yeshivah at the time of the 1929 attack and later died in
Jerusalem in 1935. Some of his students published some of his
writings which has
a forward by his son, the late Raphael Chasman, a journalist in Tel Aviv.
Rabbi Yehuda Leib Chasman

Rabbi Chasman was the mashgiach, the spiritual mentor, of Chevron
Yeshiva. He studied in Yeshivat Kelm under Reb Simcha Zissel Ziev, in
the Yeshiva of Volozhin under the Netziv and in the Yeshiva of Brisk,
under Rabbi Chaim Halevi Soloveichik. In 1897, he was served as the
mashgiach in Telz Yeshiva, and in 1908 he established the Shtutshin
Yeshiva. Eventually, he moved to Israel and became mashgiach in
Chevron Yeshiva, both in Chevron, and later, in Yerushalayim. Among
his talmidin was Reb Shlomo Schwadron. He authored Ohr Yohel and
passed away on 11 Cheshvan, 1931. His only son was Raphael Chasman,
born 4/1/1901 in Kelm. Lithuania. Worked as a journalist in Kovno for
"The Yiddeshe Shmate" he first came to for a visit to Israel in 1929.
He returned to Tel Aviv in 1935, working for the papers Haaretz and
Hazofe and American Yiddish paper: Tag. He passed away on 1/21/1972

Hello. 
My name is Nancy Ertter and I’m looking for some of my relatives in Belarus, Lithuania, or Poland, and my best lead so far is they were living in Ivye, Grodno Region, Belarus. I am hoping you might be able to assist me in finding them and their family. My great Uncle’s name was Mikhail Horbach  who died on May 28,1989. I have a letter from his wife Dana Mikhailovna Miksha witten on December 15, 1989  addressed to my three aunts in New Jersey. 

Dana has two children a daughter and son. I don’t know their names, but the daughter went to college perhaps around the area. The son was a farmer.

The address on the letter is:
Byelorussia Belarus
Grodno Region
Ivye
Pioneer by-street 5
Dana Mikhailovna

I also have another mailing certificate to my Great Uncle postmarked November 12, 1976 from one of my aunt’s:
Horbach Mykhail Iv.
obl. Grodno
s/s r-n. Ivie
der Zubkovua (I don’t have the ending to this place or where it is located)
I realize this was an address when Belarus was part of the Soviet Union.

Thank you for any help you might give me.
