Hi, I typed in my grandfathers name in the search engine online to see if I could find anything out about my ancestry and your website came up. I saw that there was information about my family written on June 17th in your guestbook. I was wondering where you found the information. I am the daughter of Judy Graffman. Annie Isaacson was my great grandmother. I would love to know how you found your information and if you have any questions for me please let me know. I live in Baltimore,Maryland. Great website!

Hi,
I just received some information that Chane Kriger from Radiskewitz may be my great grandmother and I saw your message on the Ancestry Message Board. Can you give me any information? Thanks,
Sheila Horn .

Your website indicates that both the Alperovitz and Shepsenwohl families
lived in Radoshkovichi.
My ancestor was a Shepsenwohl, whose son married the daughter of an Alperovitz, I believe, as a way of avoiding the Russian army. He took her
last name, because supposedly, families with only one son did not lose their
son to the army.
Does that story seem possible to you? How can I find out more about my
ancestry? I can trace it back to a Moshe Yoneh Shepsenwohl, who had a son
Kalman Alperovitz.
E Alper
Dear E. Alper,
I think that a Moshe Yoneh Shepsenwohl wrote a book about
the town. Steve Rosen must be related to you. He also has Shepsenwohl/ Alperovitz ancestor. I would love to add pictures of your family to the site.

Below are some scattered notes from my files and my memory on the Scolnik and Manpel Families (who are among the descendants of Eliyohu Zaludik)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Kalman and Mary Scolnik (both deceased)
210 Ash Street
Lewiston, Maine 04240
Tel. 207-782-5794 Kalman and Mary were married 9/23/1910.
They are the parents of Samuel, Bill, and Eddy Scolnik.
Mary's yortsait is 24 Nissan. I (Jason I Alpert) knew Kalman and Mary well. (I was born in Lewiston, Maine, March 8, 1940.) My mother worshipped her Aunt Mary, and repeatedly took me to visit her. Many years ago, I spent a few hours with Kalman Scolnik at 210 Ash Street. I picked his brain in compiling our family tree. Unfortunately, Kalman has passed on, and the piece of paper containing that family-tree has been lost. Some things survive in my memory, to wit: Kalman said that our ultimate ancestor was named Eliyahu Der Vilner (meaning Eliyahu from the City of Vilna). This is undoubtedly the Eliyahu Zaludik that is listed on Dave Fessler's excellent family-tree (see below). (And, no -- this is NOT the Vilner Gaon.) Kalman lived to the age of perhaps 110 or 120. In case you want to try to figure out his exact age, consider this: Kalman once told me that he (Kalman) was born in Kurenitz (Kurenets in Belorus) "the year of the big fire." Kalman also told me that he'd had a brother who'd changed his name to Alperowicz (a very popular family-name in Kurenitz), and that this brother had then moved (from Kurenitz) to Bobruisk (Belorus). Someone should try to locate any descendants of this displaced family-member ...
Kalman's wife (and first-cousin) was Mary. "Aunt Mary" was a sister of my grandfather (Eliyohu-Shlomo or "E-le-SHLEY-me") Gurewitz. My mother Dorothy Gurewitz Alpert (Eleshleyme's daughter) used to address her as " Mi-YA-she" (probably from the Russian name Mar-ya-sha)" My mother OB"M passed away Feb 1991.
Kalman and Mary's two unmarried sons, Bill and Eddy, still live at 210 Ash Street in Lewiston. Bill and Eddy probably possess a treasure-trove of information that could be used for family genealogical research. By this I mean correspondence from pre-war Europe. This is because the Scolniks have lived at 210 Ash Street in Lewiston "forever", and that address has for many years served as a rally point for separated and dispersed family members to seek each other. (According to Dave Fessler's family-tree, Bill was born in 1913, and Eddy in 1917 -- so I wouldn't procrastinate contacting them.)
For example, cousin Ida Manpel Rubin (see below) once told me the story of how she'd been reunited with her brother Elye after the Holocaust. She said that Elye had written to the Scolniks at 210 Ash Street saying that he was still alive. He'd survived the Nazis, and was living in Russia. (The only American address that he had was 210 Ash Street.) The Scolnik's contacted Ida in NYC upon receipt of this letter (more about this below). Nevertheless, Ida disliked her uncle Kalman. She called him "a miyeser shlang!". (Perhaps she was jealous of his great wealth???) Ida (Chaya-Hinda) MANPEL was born in Dalhinov (Dolginovo), which is now in Belarus. Ida emigrated to the USA, where she married Israel "Tulie" RUBIN. They lived in Brooklyn, NY.
I used to have a b/w photo of Ida Manpel and her parents and siblings, sent from Dalhinov to my grandfather Louis Sam Gurewitz in Auburn, Maine. It was sent before she emigrated to the USA. Does anyone have a copy of this priceless photo? I doubt that Ida is still alive. You could check with her son Lewis -- with whom I once played chess while the Rubin family lived on (367?) Miller Avenue in the East New York section of Brooklyn -- around 1954 or so. Here is his address: Rubin, Lewis MD (Urologist)
2320 Bath St # 309
Santa Barbara, CA 93105 Phone: 805-682-7661

After Ida Manpel emigrated to the USA, her brother Elye Manpel remained behind in Dalhinov (Dolginovo). Elye was there during the Holocaust. Fortunately, Elye caught the very last train that managed to leave Dalhinov before the Nazis arrived, and thus miraculously escaped the invading Nazis. MANY YEARS LATER, a letter from him was received by the Scolniks at 210 Ash Street in Lewiston. He was (is?) living in the Russian city of Orel (pronounced Aryol). I am attaching a file named Manpel.GIF. This is an image of Elye's address written in Cyrillic characters. Here is my transliteration of the Cyrillic version, and it may be WRONG.
Elye Manpel
Komsomolskaya Street 46, Apt. 3
Orël, Russia 302001 (ANSI character-set, used in Windows)
Or‰l, Russia 302001 (ASCII character-set, used in DOS)
I believe that Elye was Ida's YOUNGEST sibling. Therefore, he might still be alive. Someone should try to locate him, and any possible descendants (as well as Kalman's brother in Bobruisk, mentioned above) ...
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Lewis Rubin's older brother is Seymour, and the oldest is Jackie.
I found these 2 addresses for Seymour on the Internet.
I don't know if either is correct. Rubin, Seymour
2085 Rkwy Pkwy
Brooklyn, NY 11236
(718) 763-5419 Rubin, Seymour
4218 Bedford Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11229
(718) 769-2444 I also found Jackie's address on the Internet. I KNOW that this address is correct, because I used to visit Ida there.
Rubin, Jack
2896 W 8th St
Brooklyn, NY 11224
(718) 373-2049
(718) 373-0230 Since Jackie Rubin is occupying his parents' apartment, and since he is the oldest son -- I would think that he might be in possession of old family photos and correspondence from pre-war Eastern Europe. (Similar situation to Bill and Eddy Scolnik, above)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
***** More About the Family ***** During the years 1953-1956 (when I first came to NYC from Maine to study in a yeshiva), I used to regularly visit cousin Ida Manpel-Rubin and her husband Israel (Tulie), and their three sons.
They lived in the East New York section of Brooklyn, at 367 ? Miller Avenue.
(Later, they moved to 2896 West 8th Street in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn.) After visiting with Ida, I would walk over to (129?) Miller Avenue, and visit with cousin Sadie (Mrs Jake) Friedland, and her daughter Pauline. (I was just 13 or 14 years old. Ida and then Sadie would both feed me well.) I believe that Sadie had a sister (Becky Williams?) maybe in Far Rockway,NY. Besides their daughter Pauline, Sadie and Jake had a son named Al Friedland. Al married his second-cousin Estelle (nee Gurewitz), from Ithaca, New York (more below). -----------------------------------------------------------------------
My grandfather Louis Sam (Eleshleyme) Gurewitz (changed from Zaludik) had these siblings (as far as I recall): 1. Mary (Maryasha), who married her first-cousin Kalman Scolnik.
(They lived at 210 Ash Street in Lewiston, Maine, as mentioned above.)
2. David, of Lewiston, Maine. He never married.
3. Harry, of Ithaca, New York. [I recall now that Mary's husband Kalman couldn't stomach Mary's brother Dovid. Dovid would have to sneak over to 210 Ash St. for a meal when Kalman wasn't home. Maybe this is one of the reasons that cousin Ida Manpel-Rubin didn't like him. (As I mentioned above.)
I never met Harry Gurewitz. According to my records, Harry's daughter Estelle married her second-cousin Al Friedland. They had three children: Rickie, Phillip, Jay Lee, and Lisa Sue.
I don't remember if I ever met any of Estelle's children. I MAY have met Estelle and Al Friedland, possibly at Sadie's home on 129 Miller Avenue in Brooklyn. I don't remember.) I vaguely remember that family members would stay with Estelle, whenever they visited Florida. (Why pay for a hotel?)
My records show her address as: Estelle Friedland
17521 N. E. 1st Court
North Miami Beach, Florida 33162 But I couldn't find it on the Internet. I am fairly sure that her husband Al Friedland has passed away. I don't know about her. The children are probably alive.
------------------------------------------------------------------- A 3rd son of Kalman and Mary Scolnik is Sam Scolnik. Sam is married to the former Mary Abromson. He is a (retired?) lawyer.
Here is their address: Samuel and Mary Scolnik
3700 Calvert Pl
Kensington, Maryland 20895
301-949-0519
-------------------------------------------------------------------
******** Re the surname "GUREWITZ" ********
Ida Manpel once told me that the family-name Gurewitz wasn't genuine. The name was really Zheludek (Ida even wrote Zheludek for me on a paper.)
Also, As a child, I once questioned "Uncle Dovid" (as I used to fondly address him) as to why the family name had been changed from Zheludek to Gurewitz. His reply was something like: "Vos bin ich shul-dik vos der ta-te hot amol ge-ton?" -- which gave me the impression that he couldn't, or didn't want to, explain why his father Yosef (after whom I'm named), had changed the name. Well, this is confirmed by Dave Fessler's family-tree. Only there, the name is spelled Zaludik -- which is probably more correct.
There is a Yizkor-book commemorating a TOWN named ZHELUDOK. See
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/zaludok/zheludok.html
Many years ago I skimmed through this book. In it I found some cousins of
mine (from a different side of the family, not related to the Scolniks and Zaludiks) named ALPEROWICZ (ALPEROVITCH) and SZYFMANOWICZ (SHIFMANOVITCH). (Lyuba SZYFMANOWICZ died in the Holocaust according to page 314 in this book.)
It doesn't make sense for a family-name (surname) to be identical to a town name. Someone from Vilna might be named Vilner (not Vilna). Someone from ZHELUDOK might be named ZHELUDKER. That's why I think that Zaludik is correct. An alternate spelling might be Zaludok or Zaludek.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
According to Lester Solnin (changed from Sosensky) and Marian Anderson, Dave Fessler of Houston, Texas, has a large amount of information. They sent me a paper copy of Dave's family-tree, which is entitled "Descendants of Eliyohu Zaludik. It is a masterpiece ...
They also sent me a digitized image (Paperport .MAX file) of a 1-page Report, which is information extracted from Dave's family-tree (database).
Dave's email address is dfessler@houston.rr.com. -------------------------------------------------------------------
Speaking of "Sosensky", I vaguely recall seeing a photo of an old bearded man. I think he was a cousin named Sosensky. And I very vaguely recall being told that he was referred to as "Der Feter" ("The Uncle"). ====================================
I know nothing about the following person:
P Scolnik
Lewiston, Maine
207-784-5573 -------------------------------------------------------------------
I know nothing about the following person (Helen Manpel).
Perhaps she is Ida's sister-in-law or niece?
Manpel, Helen
1071 Eglinton West
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Tel. 416-782-6465
------------------------------------
Same is true for the following couple: Manpel, Jack & Frida
569 Sheppard Avenue, West
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Tel. 416-636-9640 ------------------------------------
This is Ida's brother (a wealthy merchant?). Manpel, Louis
989 Eglinton Avenue, Apt. #223
Toronto, Ontario, CANADA M6C2C6
------------------------------------
------------------------------------
On 10/13/1985 I (Jason I Alpert) attended a meeting of the KURENITZER FAREYN (Kurenitz Landsmanschaft or "Society"), held in New York City. There I unexpected ly met a man named Julius Scolnik, of the Bronx, NY. (This is NOT the Julius Scolnik of Lewiston, Maine.)
Julius said that he is a cousin of Kalman Scolnik of Lewiston, Maine. Julius was born circa 1897. At that time, Julius's telephone was 933-1062 (now area-code 718).
On 5/15/1986 I spoke with Julius by phone. He said that a meeting of the KURENITZER FAREYN had just been held on Sunday, 5/4/1986.
============= RESOURCES ============= *** Jewish Home for the Aged in in Portland, Maine ("Cedars Campus") *** My mother Dorothy (OBM) had a best friend. Her name was Ada (nee Meltzer) Abromson. Ada and her husband John retired to Phoenix Arizona.
I believe that Mary (Mrs Samuel) Skolnik was a close relative of Ada or John.
An Internet search that I just made for "Abromson AZ US" yielded no matches.
But a search for Ada and John's son Joel yielded the following:
I J and Linda Abromson
25 Fall Ln, Portland, ME 04103
207-797-4438 I believe that Linda is on the Board of Directors of the Jewish Home for the Aged in in Portland, Maine -- which is now called "Cedars Campus"
http://www.thecedarscampus.com/ppf.html I mention this because the records of Cedars could possibly be a great source of info for people researching Jewish families in Maine.
For example, I believe that a cousin from Auburn, Nochum Widrowitz (who was called Kop-Af-Kop) and possibly his wife Reyze ("Reize-Nochum's"), retired to this Home for the Aged.
------------------------------------
******* Zalman Alpert *******
Zalman is librarian @ Yeshiva University's Mendel Gottesman Library. Zalman has published scholarly articles on Lubavitch history -- in the English section of the ALGEMEINER Journal. Zalman's father was born in Kurenitz, and Zalman is an expert on Kurenitz. He's from New Haven, Connecticut -- a city where many Jews from Vileyka, Kurenits, and Krasne area settled. Zalman's email address is alpert@ymail.yu.edu ------------------------------------

Kalman and Mary Scolnik (both deceased)
210 Ash Street
Lewiston, Maine 04240
Tel. 207-782-5794 Kalman and Mary were married 9/23/1910.

(Later, they moved to 2896 West 8th Street in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn.) After visiting with Ida, I would walk over to (129?) Miller Avenue, and visit with cousin Sadie (Mrs Jake) Friedland, and her daughter Pauline. (I was just 13 or 14 years old. Ida and then Sadie would both feed me well.) I believe that Sadie had a sister (Becky Williams?) maybe in Far Rockway,NY. Besides their daughter Pauline, Sadie and Jake had a son named Al Friedland. Al married his second-cousin Estelle (nee Gurewitz), from Ithaca, New York (more below). -----------------------------------------------------------------------
My grandfather Louis Sam (Eleshleyme) Gurewitz (changed from Zaludik) had these siblings (as far as I recall): 1. Mary (Maryasha), who married her first-cousin Kalman Scolnik.
(They lived at 210 Ash Street in Lewiston, Maine, as mentioned above.)
2. David, of Lewiston, Maine. He never married.
3. Harry, of Ithaca, New York. [I recall now that Mary's husband Kalman couldn't stomach Mary's brother Dovid. Dovid would have to sneak over to 210 Ash St. for a meal when Kalman wasn't home. Maybe this is one of the reasons that cousin Ida Manpel-Rubin didn't like him. (As I mentioned above.)
I never met Harry Gurewitz. According to my records, Harry's daughter Estelle married her second-cousin Al Friedland. They had three children: Rickie, Phillip, Jay Lee, and Lisa Sue.
I don't remember if I ever met any of Estelle's children. I MAY have met Estelle and Al Friedland, possibly at Sadie's home on 129 Miller Avenue in Brooklyn. I don't remember.) I vaguely remember that family members would stay with Estelle, whenever they visited Florida. (Why pay for a hotel?)
My records show her address as: Estelle Friedland
17521 N. E. 1st Court
North Miami Beach, Florida 33162 But I couldn't find it on the Internet. I am fairly sure that her husband Al Friedland has passed away. I don't know about her. The children are probably alive.
------------------------------------------------------------------- A 3rd son of Kalman and Mary Scolnik is Sam Scolnik. Sam is married to the former Mary Abromson. He is a (retired?) lawyer.
Here is their address: Samuel and Mary Scolnik

******** Re the surname "GUREWITZ" ********
Ida Manpel once told me that the family-name Gurewitz wasn't genuine. The name was really Zheludek (Ida even wrote Zheludek for me on a paper.)
Also, As a child, I once questioned "Uncle Dovid" (as I used to fondly address him) as to why the family name had been changed from Zheludek to Gurewitz. His reply was something like: "Vos bin ich shul-dik vos der ta-te hot amol ge-ton?" -- which gave me the impression that he couldn't, or didn't want to, explain why his father Yosef (after whom I'm named), had changed the name. Well, this is confirmed by Dave Fessler's family-tree. Only there, the name is spelled Zaludik -- which is probably more correct.
There is a Yizkor-book commemorating a TOWN named ZHELUDOK. See
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/zaludok/zheludok.html
Many years ago I skimmed through this book. In it I found some cousins of
mine (from a different side of the family, not related to the Scolniks and Zaludiks) named ALPEROWICZ (ALPEROVITCH) and SZYFMANOWICZ (SHIFMANOVITCH). (Lyuba SZYFMANOWICZ died in the Holocaust according to page 314 in this book.)
It doesn't make sense for a family-name (surname) to be identical to a town name. Someone from Vilna might be named Vilner (not Vilna). Someone from ZHELUDOK might be named ZHELUDKER. That's why I think that Zaludik is correct. An alternate spelling might be Zaludok or Zaludek.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
According to Lester Solnin (changed from Sosensky) and Marian Anderson, Dave Fessler of Houston, Texas, has a large amount of information. They sent me a paper copy of Dave's family-tree, which is entitled "Descendants of Eliyohu Zaludik. It is a masterpiece ...
They also sent me a digitized image (Paperport .MAX file) of a 1-page Report, which is information extracted from Dave's family-tree (database).
Dave's email address is dfessler@houston.rr.com. -------------------------------------------------------------------
Speaking of "Sosensky", I vaguely recall seeing a photo of an old bearded man. I think he was a cousin named Sosensky. And I very vaguely recall being told that he was referred to as "Der Feter" ("The Uncle"). ====================================

On 10/13/1985 I (Jason I Alpert) attended a meeting of the KURENITZER FAREYN (Kurenitz Landsmanschaft or "Society"), held in New York City. There I unexpected ly met a man named Julius Scolnik, of the Bronx, NY. (This is NOT the Julius Scolnik of Lewiston, Maine.)
Julius said that he is a cousin of Kalman Scolnik of Lewiston, Maine. Julius was born circa 1897. At that time, Julius's telephone was 933-1062 (now area-code 718).
On 5/15/1986 I spoke with Julius by phone. He said that a meeting of the KURENITZER FAREYN had just been held on Sunday, 5/4/1986.
============= RESOURCES ============= *** Jewish Home for the Aged in in Portland, Maine ("Cedars Campus") *** My mother Dorothy (OBM) had a best friend. Her name was Ada (nee Meltzer) Abromson. Ada and her husband John retired to Phoenix Arizona.
I believe that Mary (Mrs Samuel) Skolnik was a close relative of Ada or John.
An Internet search that I just made for "Abromson AZ US" yielded no matches.
But a search for Ada and John's son Joel yielded the following:
I J and Linda Abromson
25 Fall Ln, Portland, ME 04103
207-797-4438 I believe that Linda is on the Board of Directors of the Jewish Home for the Aged in in Portland, Maine -- which is now called "Cedars Campus"
http://www.thecedarscampus.com/ppf.html I mention this because the records of Cedars could possibly be a great source of info for people researching Jewish families in Maine.
For example, I believe that a cousin from Auburn, Nochum Widrowitz (who was called Kop-Af-Kop) and possibly his wife Reyze ("Reize-Nochum's"), retired to this Home for the Aged.

Dear Eilat: I know that my mother was the daughter of Zalman Levin of Radoshkivichi who was one of 9 children. Her name was Asheh and she was also called Chasheh or Chashkeh. I know that Zalman Levin had about 3 or 4 brothers in the same village, on the same street, I believe and each of them had large families of children and grandchildren. Last year I had the chance to speak to a gentleman named Hillel Kreines who lives here in Toronto is originally from Radoshkovichi or lived there some of the time and knew my mother and her family. He was the one who told me that the Levin family was a huge family. My mother told me that before the war several of her older siblings were married and had chilcren. Unfortunately I don't know the names of the spouses or children nor did I ever know the the names of Zalman Levin's brothers and their families. My mother did not speak too much of the past and I did not question her very much as I knew this was so painful. But I very much regret knowing so little -- it's like a double loss for me now. From your list of those who perished, I would guess that anyone with the name Levine on it is a direct relation to me through my mother. All that I know of the Srebnik family is that it was my maternal grandmother's maiden name.
I am going to continue to examine your info and the links provided and will be in tough again soon. Thanks so much for all your information,
Ruth Glatter

Bronia (Breine) nee Kur Rabinovitz Story
Breine is the daughter of Rivka, daughter of Alexander Volozhinski from Volozhin (Rivkas’ mother Mtya was from the Bunimovitz family of Volozhin). Bronia is a cousin of the Flant family from Dolhinov.Breines’ father was Mordechai Kur who’s’ father was a well-respected scribe (writer of Torah books) in Vileyka; (Koor). Rabbi yakov Landu Z”L ABD bnai Brak wrote about Yehoshua Kur in the yizkor book for kurenets; ‘…Amongst the shoemakers I must tell about Moshe Kur the Shoemaker from Dolhinov Street. He was a spiritual Jew and would read with excitement from the Torah. He was also a Kadainov Hasid. His father was Reb Yeoshua, the writer from Vileyka. The son of Moshe, Shlomo Chaim studied Torah in our minyan, and when he arrived at the age where he would be taken to the army, he escaped and went to London. His last name was Koor and from what I heard he became a Hazan in one of the synagogues in London, where he later passed away…”* The parents of Breine came from very respected religious families and a matchmaker arranged their marriage as the custom of Jews in 1900. The relatives from the groom side said that Rivka did not come to the marriage with the appropriate dowry but she had other qualities to compensate for it. The oldest boy; Avraham was born in 1910, Eliezer was born in
He was “Tamid Chacham” a Yeshiva “Bachur”. A distant cousin; Arie Shevach remembers that there was a time when Eliezer had to serve in the Polish army c 1937. He was station near Krasne and the rabbi of Krasne ordered the family to prepare Kosher food for Eliezer and he would deliver it to Eliezer everyday. Arie was about 12 years old and was getting ready for his Bar Mitzva and Eliezer helped him with some of his studies.
Breine attended the TARBUT school in Horodok. All the subjects [other the mandatory class in the Polish language] were instructed in HEBREW. Breine also attended the tuition free Polish public school for a few years. .
After the Soviets took control of the area in September of 1939 and instituted a communist rule in the area Breine.'s oldest sister; Leyka, who owned a coffee store in Horodok knew that she would be classified unfavorably as ‘capitalist” so she moved to Vileyka. Vileyka, one of the region's main towns, became an important place for the Soviet municipal authorities and She worked for them.
When the German invaded the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 The Soviet officers and official evacuated the area and crossed by trains the old border (the pre 1939 Poland/ Soviet union border) . Some of them insisted that Breine's sister, along with other Jews in the town who worked for the Soviets, left with them because they knew what the impending German invasion would mean for them. (in some cases the Soviet officials actually pushed Jews they encountered around town onto departing trains without leaving them a moment to return to their homes and families. One Jewish woman, Dora Rabinovitz told me that that she came to Vileyka to work that day wearing a light summer dress and, by chance, carrying a picture of her family in her pocket. She was pushed onto a train and sent to the cold of Russia for more then two years and was the only member of her family to survive E. D)
Breine.'s brother Eliezer was studying in a yeshiva in Poland. In 1939, when the area was given to the Soviets the whole yeshiva received illegally acquired papers from the Japanese ambassador, or assistant to the Japanese ambassador in Lithuania. With these papers, the residents of the yeshiva were allowed to immigrate to China before the German invasion. In China, Breine.'s brother contacted their other brother back in the area of Horodok who subsequently traveled all the way to China so as to bring him back to Poland, where he would later perish in German hands. (He might have never left for China, his brother might have taken him from Lithuania back to Horodok the Soviets would never let anyone without papers go all the way to China and back the papers were very very hard to obtain)
During the German occupation Breine and her family first went to a former Christian neighbor and asked him to hide them. However, because they had previously given him their possessions for safe keeping, he was loathe to the idea of saving those who may later ask for his newly acquired, albeit on loan, goods. So, when they asked to be let in, he threatened to kill them
.
Breine and the rest of the family escaped the killing in Horodok and came to the krasne ghetto. Most of the Jews in the krasne ghetto came from towns that were already annihilated. Every time before they annihilated a community, they chose a few Jews who could be useful and transferred them to Krasne. The place was chosen as a supply base for the Germans, where materiel was relayed to and from the front, including a large amount of weapons captured from the Soviets. Thousands of Jews worked in construction, in loading and unloading goods, and in other logistical support positions. Since the ghetto could not contain thousands of workers, the Germans established a labor camp, and they continuously brought Jews from neighboring towns after each action. As in other ghettoes and camps, there was a Jewish committee or Judenrat. At the head of the Krasne Judenrat was Shabtai Oryuk. During the First World War he had been a POW in Germany for a few years and learned to speak German fluently.
Shaptai Olyuk and the brothers of the Kaplan house, Yitzhak and Moshe.
. Breine and her family believed that working for the Germans will save them. She worked with other Jewish women and children to lay new train tracks. German soldiers routinely routed out and murdered Jews who were weaker or more feeble than the rest. The food given daily to the Jews who worked for the Germans consisted of one piece of bread with marmalade, and on occasion, a soup made from discarded potato peals. Often, the garbage of non-Jews was served to the Jews as food. Once, B. saw the German soldiers throw a live dog into the soup they were serving and then forced the Jews who had witnessed the event to eat the soup. At another time, a Jewish child returned to ask for an extra helping of soup. Instead of granting his request, the German soldiers put the child into the boiling soup. On one occasion, she spotted some moldy bread in the garbage and treasuring it, picked it out of the trash, eating a little and saving the rest for her family. Some German soldiers saw her and abused her for taking the bread.
There was one Jew from Horodak who would tell the Germans which Jews were wealthy, in hopes of being spared by the soldiers. Nevertheless, the German soldiers later killed him Breine and her family thought that the Germans needed them as workers so they worked very hard because they thought it would be their ticket to survive. At one point they realized that they should go into hiding in a hidden ditch they had dug for that purpose. Many Jews resorted to living in ditches to escape the Germans. The ditches varied in size - some holding five, others ten, and still others, up to twenty people. Often ditches were designated for different age, and gender groups. While they were in hiding in the ditch and fearful of the German soldiers they knew were near, one of the young girls (about 10 years old) in the ditch with B. and her family started crying for water. A man in the ditch started choking her to silence her. B. Prevented him from killing the girl by pushing him away and placing her hands over the girl's mouth. The young girl is now a doctor in the U.S..
They had large amounts of gold and while hiding out in the ditch, they decided that the best thing to do would be to offer the wealth to the Germans in return for a promise of security. B was on her way to deliver the gold and solicit such a promise when Zemitre, a Christian from the village, came to her and challenged the logic of her mission. He said, "Are you crazy? Why are you going back to them? They're killing everyone." He then took Breine to his barn and hid her in the area used for storing hay, where she remained for a week.
Breine's family didn't know what had happened to her after she left the ditch. Although everyone left the ditch while Breine was still missing, her family, because they were worried about her whereabouts returned to look for her. Tragically, her family was killed upon their return while the rest of the people who had left the ditch survived.
A neighbor of the Christian who had saved Breine had also taken the risk of hiding a fugitive Jew. When the other neighbors found out they attacked and killed him, and burnt down his house. After this incident, Breine's host was afraid and forced her to leave. For a time she hid where she could, moving from place to place, and eating what she could find, including grass and garbage.
One farmer who was out searching for eggs in his yard discovered Breine in hiding. He immediately knew who she must be. Terrified, she told him that she knew the location of a large quantity of gold and promised to lead him to it, should he chose to spare her from the Germans. The farmer told her to that he did not need her gold, he will help her but she must wait where she was and left since this occurred shortly after they sloutherred the Jews of Krasne many of the Jewish bodies were left in different areas were they were killed and the Germans were worried that disease would spread yet they did not want to touch the remains and all their Jewish slave workers were killed by them they ordered the local population to get rid of the budies and the man was ordered to do it. B. was certain that he had gone to fetch German soldiers. However, after ten minutes the farmer's wife appeared and offered B. a bowl of soup and a spoon. B. hadn't eaten in a long time, and ravished with hunger, drank the soup straight from the bowl. The farmer's wife cried to seeing her desperate condition.
Breine stayed with the farmer and his wife, living exclusively in their barn for one week. She remained in hiding in the barn because there were many Germans in the area. She was never allowed in the house. Later, they made her a nanny to their children, although she continued to sleep in the barn. Most of the neighbors were never aware of her because of the lengths that B. and the family went to in keeping her presence a secret.
Through rumors that had spread among the non-Jewish farming residents of the area, Isaac Noll, a Jewish member of the partisans, found out that there was a Jewish girl surviving alone in the area. (B. remarks that it was amazing that the residents had not yet turned her in). Isaac asked them where they could find her and they told her Maruska Kamarouski had her staying with him.
The partisans Months before the German troops began slaughtering the Jews in KRASNE, many young Jewish men realized what was about to transpire and escaped deep into the surrounding forest where they joined forces with partisan groups already established by Soviets, and especially former Soviet prisoners of war who had been treated as badly as the Jews under the Germans. Together, they began ambushing and killing German soldiers. Much of the local population was afraid of the partisans because the partisans made it clear that anyone found collaborating with the Germans would be killed.
When B. initially tried to join the partisans they would not accept her because she came empty handed. However, a younger first cousin of hers (his father was the brother of Breine's mother), Mayer Vol (previously known as Volojinski) ambushed a German and stole his weapon, which he then gave to B. so that she would be accepted in by the partisans. Now this cousin lives in Windsor, Canada.
Breine. returned armed to the partisans, who let her in, and Breine became a member of the Atriad Staritsky. This group of partisans hid out in the forest between the towns of Baranovic and Volozhin, remaining closer to latter. Breine stayed in the forest for one and half years. After staying for awhile with the partisans she came to understand that the Germans were losing the war because, for the first time, she had access to radio broadcasting, and in 1944 they began seeing Allied planes fly overhead.
Breine didn't fight with the partisans, but facilitated their goals in other ways, tending to the livestock and helping out with the cooking. After the war she received medals for her participation in the resistance, but hadn't killed anyone and so felt as though she didn't deserve them.
Breine felt that Jews and Soviets alike were treated equally within the partisan ranks and generally, got along well. She does recall one instance, however, when a Jew by the name of Fole Parovsky went to town to find food with two Soviets, and never returned. The two Soviets claimed he had been killed by German soldiers. However, one partisan by the name of Jaunsh didn't believe their story and started investigating only to find that the Soviets had killed Fole. The partisans had a trial and found one of the Soviets guilty. He was subsequently killed. Breine can only speculate on his motivation, but believes it may have been anti-Semitism. However, this was a rare case.
In the evenings, the partisans would make communal fires and sit around and sing together. They would sing so loudly and happily that Breine would be afraid that the German soldiers would find them. However, her cousin Isaac reassured her that they were too scared of the partisans to come to the forest that was controlled by the Russian partisans.
Once the partisans caught a German soldier. This particular German soldier was a special target of their anger because he carried with him numerous photographs of Jews he had killed, (They used to send the pictures to Germany) They ordered everyone to watch while they killed him. Breine covered her face, refusing to watch. However, her cousin chided her, telling her she was crazy to feel any sympathy to Germans who mercilessly killed so many Jews.
There was a woman named Yokha Rubenshik from Minsk who was a partisan member. When the Germans packed the Jews into train cars to be killed, she and her siblings where among those on the train. Yokha, realizing what their fate must be, pushed her younger brother out of the train. He eventually survived the war and became a dentist. She survived because she worked for the Germans and then escaped. Later, she joined the partisans and was sent by them back to Minsk where she recruited twelve more Jews. Together, this fugitive band removed their stars of David and escaped. However, while they were escaping a German soldier came by. Yokha approached him and spoke to him Russian, knowing that he would recognize her Yiddish accent if she spoke in German. She acted very self-assured and invited the German to eat with her. She emphasized that she had ham to eat and told him to meet her at a particular place and time later that evening. Meanwhile, the other Jews escaped.
Towards the end of the war, when the Germans were clearly losing, a boy from Minsk named Moshe managed to round up thirty Germans who thought they were surrendering and would be made POWs.
When the commanders told the partisans that the area was free of German troops, forty Jewish partisans decided to re-enter the city of Volozhin, the closest town. Upon returning they found that many homes and been burnt down and destroyed. Also, this town, previously famous for its large Jewish population had been repopulated by Christians. When the Christians saw that Jews were returning they began to weep and were afraid. However, the group of forty Jews were still scared to disband and live separately, and so they re-occupied only three houses in the town. Because there were so few Jews that had survived the war, this group of survivors became like family to one another.
It was while staying in this house that Breine met her husband to be. He had spent the war as a soldier in the Red Army in Russia, although he was originally from Breine's hometown of Horodok. As soon as he heard that his home region had been freed by the Red Army, he boarded a train and returned. When he had left for Russia he left behind a wife and two children, who were to perish in the Holocaust. His first wife's name was Blumke, she was a beautiful woman (one of her brothers survived the war and lives iin Israel). Because of her beauty, the Germans wanted to take her to work for them and send her children to be killed, but she insisted on accompanying her children. Everyone knew this story about Blumke and her children and so were able to tell her husband what had happened when they eventually met up with him upon his return.
Breine's future husband returned to find Christians living in his old house. As soon as they saw him, one of the Christians went to look for an axe with which to kill him. Understanding what they were about to do, Breine's future husband jumped out of a window in the house and went for the Soviet police. After this incident, he was too afraid to ask any Christians about what had happened to his family, and couldn't find any Jews in the town. However, he did eventually learn that there were a few Jews living in Volozhin.
When he arrived in Volozhin and met Bronia, he immediately asked her to marry him. Since Bronia had come from a religious family she had never looked at another man before him. After getting married they stayed in Volozhin for one year and began selling things from a horse and carriage. Breine's first son was born there. However, like all the other Jews living in Volozhin, Bronia and her husband wanted to leave.
All of a sudden, Breine's sister who had traveled on a train to Siberia before the German invasion, returned. Her sister had written a letter to a Christian neighbor named Yokobovsky inquiring about her family. Breine happened to return to Horodok with her husband to visit and was given the letter. She responded to her sister's letter from Kemarov, Siberia, writing that the rest of the family had died, but not to grieve because she was still alive. Upon getting the letter, her sister fainted and was taken to the hospital where she spent two months. After recovering, she returned to Volozhin with a Jewish man she had met in Siberia, and lived with Breine. and her husband.
Shortly after they arrived in Volozhin they decided to leave for Germany. From Germany they believed they would be able to travel to other countries. They had terrible associations with the town of Volozhin and the surrounding area and couldn't wait to leave. However, when they arrived in Germany they found themselves marooned in refugee camps for a year and a half, which, compared to other fellow refugees, was a short time. As refugees, however, they were allowed to stay in real homes and apartments, which had previously been inhabited by members of the SS.
Part of the problem was that no country wanted to accept them. Although they received free food and goods from the U.S., they were barred from emigrating there. B.'s husband said he didn't want to go to the U.S. anyway and preferred instead to move to Israel where he felt there would be more of an assurance that what had happened to them in Poland would not reoccur.
Eventually they were able to travel on a ship named the Queen Anna Maria to Israel. In Israel they lived first in a refugee camp named Binyamina in very difficult
conditions in tents. Later, they settled in Brandeis in Israel

My cousin Danny Koor has been in contact with you, and has sent me all the details he has received from you so far.
We share the same grandfather Shlomo Chayim, or Solomon Koor as he was known in England. My late mother Marie, and Danny's late father Henry were brother and sister, together with 2 surviving sisters Hannah and Lily.
The family lived initially in the East End of London, moving to Notting Hill in the 1920's, where
my grandfather eventually became minister of Notting Hill Synagogue until he died in May 1946.

From;GREAT NORTHERN WAR Telpukhovski, Col. B. S.


......Strategic plan of campaign in Russia was worked out by Charles already in Saxony. It was to go by the shortest route and time to Moscow. But on the way to fulfill this plan the heroic defense of the Russian army and white Russian and Ukrainian peoples brought trouble and Charles had to change part of the operation plan to try to keep to the strategic plan. Battle of Golovichi At the beginning of June 1708 Charles had a three month supply of food. He left Radoshkovichi, where his main headquarters was located, and moving to Minsk from where in 7 June 1708 he began to move toward the Berezina. Deciding not to force the river at Borosova, he went south to the Berezina and on 14 June the lead units forced the river and on 17 June all the Swedes were across the river on to the left bank....

Today I called Moshe Baran.
Moshe was born in 1919 in Horodok to Ester nee Weisbord from Volozhin (born in 1902 and Yosef Baran who was so born in Horodok 1890 (His grandfather; Avraham Pinchas was born in Oshmina grandmother; Riva Risha). Moshe's parents met when his father attended the Volozhin Yeshiva and he had a "Keset" (room and board) at the house of of the Weisbord family in Volozhin.
Ester nee Weisbord had four sisters;
1. ? Married a Persky in Volozhin and had two daughters; Gitel born c 1912 and Zila born c 1916. Gitel was married before the war. The family perished in Volozhin.
2. Shoshke married Yisrael Mayzel and lived in Horodok. At one point they immigrated to the U. S and some of their children were born there. The family returned to Horodok were the mother died. some of their children went to Cuba and in 1950 went to Luisiana.the rest of the family perished in Horodok.
3. Bela, a twin sister to Ester went to Louisiana (Shreveport) she had a family there.
4. Chana married a lampart and perished in Volozhin.
Moshes' father; Yosef Baran had a brother; Hirshel Leib Baran who moved to Kurenets after his wife died. one of his sons also moved to Kurenets. Hirshel perished in Kurenets. His son escaped to the forest and was later killed. Moshe had twin sisters; Mina and Musha, they were born in 1928 his brother Yehoshua was born in 1922.
In 1928 the family moved to Rakov. The father had a leather factory there. Yakov Lifshitz was Moshes' teacher in Rakov. Pruma nee Shulman lifshitz (Yakov's wife) was his teacher in Horodok.
The family lived in Rakov until 1932 and then returned to Horodok.
Moshes' father and one of his sisters perished in the holocaust. Moshe, his mother, his brother Yehoshua and the other sister were sent to the work camp in Krasne.
One time when Moshe was working on the rail road for the Germans two Jews from Warsaw were working near by. They were ordred to put away some Russian weapon that the Germans found.Moshe and the guys were able to hide some of it and take it to the Ghetto. in January of 1943 a Jewish woman asked Moshe to help her to escape with her two children (7 and 9) she told him that she knew of a forest were other Jews from the area were hiding and she would take him there if he would help them.
Moshe took his weapon and escaped with the woman and her children. They arrived in the area of Kramnitz near Ilja and found the Jews. Since Moshe had weapon he became a member of the partisan unit Hanokem (Masitel) the leader was Lunin and the Komisar was Patashkevitz.
Moshe was able to help his mother, sister and brother escape from the Krasne camp on March 17,1943 two days before the camp was annihilated. Moshe served with the partisans until 1944. in the spring of 1944 when the Germans knew that they had lost the war in the East (Of Europe) they started a huge blockade against the partisans. Moshe and his unit were hiding in the marshes for many days.
Moshes' Mother; Ester was the only Jewish mother in Horodok who survived the Holocaust. after the war ended the family was on the way to Israel when the family of Ester's sisters in Shreveport, Louisiana found out that they survived. They pleaded with them to join them in the U. S. They were well of and helped them to settle in America.
Today Moshe lives in Pittsburgh next to his sister. Yehoshua lives in Los Angeles.
Moshe told me that some years ago he visited Yisrael Garber the son of the Shochet of Hordok who now lives in New York. Yisrael had a movie that was made in Horodok in 1933 by Dov Shapira who was born in Horodok.
Dov left Horodok when he was 13. He did well in America and in 1933 he and his wife came for a visit and Gave large sums of money to the Rabbi of Horodok for the community. They also gave five dollars to each person even to the little children. They also made a film of their visit. Moshe knew that the film must be for more then a personal use. He transferred it to a video and send copies to Horodok people in Israel and also gave copies to Jewish organizations. the video Horodok could be ordered for $30 at;
http://www.brandeis.edu/jewishfilm/titlepricestart.html
"Image Before My Eyes," is the name of a 90-minute film about Jewish life in the Pale of Settlement between the two World Wars. The video includes some, but not all, of the footage from the Horodok silent video, as well as some different footage of what was obviously the same visit. This excerpt also includes interviews, segments on other locations and on other topics, including the wooden synagogues, of which so very few remain. The modern parts are in color, and the entire 90-minutes is also available through The National Center for Jewish Film at Brandeis.
http://www.brandeis.edu/jewishfilm/titlepricestart.html
Moshe told me that there are other videos of
Resistance and Stories of Jewish Partisans that he (and some other partisans from the area of Horodok and other areas ) detail their battle first for survival and then for revenge in the towns and forests of Poland, Lithuania, and Belarus between 1941 and 1945.

------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5 km from the recreation center "Alesya" there is an old town Radoshkovichi known since the year 1447. According to annals the famous magnates Gatsholds, Bona Sforca the Queen of Poland and Grand Lithuanian Princess, the Glebovichs, and the Radzivils governed the town in ancient times. Since 1539 till the middle of the XIX century it was the place for annual festivals and fairs. In the XVI century a castle was built here. In 1659 the town Radoshkovichi was granted self-government - Magdeburg - rights, in 1792 the emblem of the town was introduced. Not far from "Alesya" in the village Vyazynka (now Vyazynka is a literary memorial) in the year 1882 the famous Byelorussian poet Yanka Kupala was born.

------------------------------------------------------------------------ My Grandfather was Hyman Hochstein of Bayonne,NJ. His daughter, Rose, was my mother. She always told me the family came from Radishkovich and/or Novogroduk and she was born in Bayonne,with a given name of Riva or Reba. After she died in 1991, her younger sister, Zelda, told me she had been born in Russia and came over as an infant. Sure enough, this web site has 3 listings which, I suspect, are my mother. Riwe or Ruve Hochstein is shown as having arrived at age "0" from Nowoguidok or Noregrodok in 1906. If anyone can provide some clarity to this sketchy info, plz contact me.

.....Byelorussia's Jewish population numbered almost 1.1 million on the eve of the German invasion. In fact, many of Byelorussia's largest cities - Minsk, Vitebsk, Mogilev, Gomel, Bobruisk, Orsha - had Jewish majorities. The invading Germans began the murder of Byelorussian Jews soon after their arrival. Jews who were not killed during the initial operations were forced to move into ghettos. These ghettos were systematically liquidated from the fall of 1941 to the fall of 1943. German authorities a lso accused the Jews of being the driving force behind the Soviet partisan movement, whose members began to operate in growing numbers behind German lines in the spring of 1942. For example, Wilhelm Kube, the Commissar General for White Ruthenia, equated Jews with partisans in the same report in which he proudly told his superiors about the murder of 55,000 Byelorussian Jews during a ten-week period in the spring and summer of 1942. (3) Most Nazi crimes in Byelorussia, particularly the murder of Byelorussian Jewry, were committed by mobile forces. Units belonging to two of Heydrich's Einsatzgruppen - A and B - were operating in Byelorussia. They received assistance from regular German police battalions and Waffen-SS units. To be sure, some of the Einsatzgruppen headquarters became stationary at the end of 1941 for the purpose of establishing an SS/police structure in the occupied Soviet Union. Yet, the occupiers' killing opera tions never really lost their mobile character throughout the occupation owing to the expanse of the areas to which these forces were assigned. After the war, members of the Einsatzgruppen were the subjects of several trials, most notably that of Otto Oh lendorf and 20 other officers before a U.S. military tribunal from July 1947 to April 1948. (4) Beginning in 1950 West German courts also tried Einsatzgruppen men. (5) In addit ion to the courts, historians also began to investigate the Einsatzgruppen and publish their findings. (6) While the history of the Einsatzgruppen is by now well-documented, the same cannot be said for most of the indigenous units who assisted the Germans in the murder of Soviet Jews and gentiles. Some - like the Arjas Commando, the Kaminsky Brigade an d the SS unit "Druzhina" - have attained great notoriety. However, historians have paid little attention to the large numbers of lesser-known indigenous "security" forces without which the Germans would have encountered greater difficulty in liquidating entire ghettos and staging massive murder and pillage operations disguised as anti-partisan actions. The Germans established two types of local units: the Schutzmannschaft and the Ordnungsdienst. The forme r generally operated in areas under civilian administration and fell within the SS/police command structure; the latter was established in army and army group rear areas and placed under the authority of local and district military commanders. Historians have only recently begun to study the Schutzmannschaften and the Ordnungsdienst. (7) .....

Shmuel Helberg from The Jewish Colonial Trust Ltd was the parent company of the Anglo Palestine
Bank, the predecessor of Bank Leumi of Israel. It was founded in 1899 by
Theodore Hertzl to serve as a financial instrument for the Zionist Movement.
Early in the 20th century, the company issued approximately 250,000 shares
at par value one pound Sterling. The company's activities in the
diplomatic field focused on the purchase from the Ottoman Government of
the right to settle in the Land of Israel, and in the financial field, to
grant credit for the establishment of Zionist activities in the Land of
Israel. The company established a number of subsidiaries which
subsequently became well known, including the Anglo-Palestine Bank which
later evolved into today's Bank Leumi of Israel.
In the 1950s the company's activities were transferred to an Israeli
corporation, The Jewish Colonial Trust Ltd., and most of its share rights
were converted into interests in the Israeli company.

Mourners march at Auschwitz, mark ghetto uprising
By Reuters OSWIECIM, Poland - High school students joined Holocaust survivors from around the world in Poland on Tuesday to mourn Jews killed at the Auschwitz death camp and mark the Warsaw Ghetto uprising against Nazi rule 60 years ago.
President Moshe Katsav and his Polish counterpart, Aleksander Kwasniewski, led 3,000 people in the "March of the Living" through Auschwitz's gate, bearing the infamous German inscription "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work Makes You Free), to the nearby twin camp at Birkenau.
"With the sun, birds singing and blue sky you can't really imagine that these heinous crimes happened here," said Avishai Nalka, 16, a high school student from Ashdod. "I only saw this place in black-and-white history films, now I see it in color."
More than a million people, mostly Jews, died in the gas chambers or from disease and starvation at Auschwitz, the German name for Oswiecim, during World War Two. Six million Jews were killed in the Nazi Holocaust. Poland's pre-war Jewish community of 3.5 million was reduced to 300,000.
Organizers of the march, which was part of Holocaust Remembrance Day, said there were fewer marchers than in recent years due to security concerns over the recent war in Iraq. The event also marked the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which has become a symbol of Jewish resistance against rule by Nazi Germany.
On April 19, 1943, Jewish fighters launched a desperate last stand against German occupying forces to resist looming deportations to death camps. They held off the Nazis for several weeks with homemade explosives.
Also marching was Norman Frejman, 72, who as a child survived the Warsaw Ghetto, deportation to the Majdanek death camp and slave labor in Germany.
"God wanted me to survive: All my family perished either in the Warsaw Ghetto or in the camps. I am getting old, so I had to come here to see it once again. This is hallowed ground, because the ashes of Jews are scattered here," he said. "I also wanted to attend the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. This is very near to me," said Frejman, who left for the United States after the war and lives in Florida.
Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked on a different day each year because it is linked to the 27th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan, when the uprising began. In Israel, sirens brought the country to a standstill for a two-minute silence and flags were at half-mast for the memorial.

------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Radoshkovichi was part of Poland between 1921 and 1939;
Poland emerged as a bourgeois republic under the influence of the great revolutionary movement which swept the whole of Eastern and Central Europe in the years 1917-19. Although the reborn state did not solve the basic economic and social questions, its legislation granted equal rights to all citizens irrespective of nationality and religious convictions. This was guaranteed by its constitution adopted by the Sejm in March 1921 . Thus were abolished the legal norms inherited from the partitioning powers, which gave different legal status to various groups of society. However some questions as laid down in the constitution lent themselves to various interpretations. In 1931 the Sejm passed a law which abrogated expressis verbis all regulations which were discriminatory on grounds of religion, nationality and race. In this respect independent Poland fulfilled the people's hopes. The matter was different in the field of economic relations. In the inter-war period Poland found herself in an extremely difficult situation. Leaving aside the fluctuations of economic development experienced by all capitalist countries (a particularly deep drop in production, employment and incomes was noted in the first half of the 1930's), the average increase in the number of places of work was far behind the population growth. Overpopulation of the countryside became more acute, which in turn brought about the shrinking of the internal market and the resultant impoverishment of petty tradesmen and craftsmen. Unemployment in towns took on catastrophic dimensions. In these circumstances, especially in the 1930's, the pauperization of those strata which earned their living from small shops increased. Economists spoke of the overcrowding of trade and crafts. According to the 1931 census of the nearly 32 million Polish citizens, 10 per cent (or some three million) were Jews. Of this figure 42 per cent worked in industry, mining and crafts and 36 per cent in trade and kindred branches. Other occupations played a lesser role in the Jews, occupational structure. In some branches of the economy Jews constituted a majority. This concerned above all the retail trade where 71 per cent of all tradesmen were Jewish. In the clothing and leather industry this percentage was almost 50. Typical Jewish occupations were tailoring and shoemaking. However in the conditions of massive unemployment, in spite of the over abundance of certain specialties in crafts, they had no chance of finding employment. At the same time there was a growth in the number of merchants and craftsmen of other nationalities. In the countryside, the expanding cooperative movement became a serious rival to the private merchants. It would be wrong to assume that the concentration of Jews in certain branches of the economy and their pauperization were the result of a deliberate policy on the part of the state. It is true that the administration was unfavorably disposed towards employing other than Polish nationals in state enterprises, especially those of military importance (for example railways and armaments factories) and therefore removed Jews from these establishments. However, the direct reason for anti-Jewish discrimination has to be sought in the past, in the relations which had been formed in the period of the partitions. The overcoming of the traditional occupational and social structure of the Jewish community could be accomplished only by the acceleration of the economic development of the country as a whole and also by the creation of conditions favoring the acquiring of new trades which had not been popular among the Jewish community. This problem was also perceived by some Jewish organizations which undertook actions aimed at training young people in various specialties. This was done most often by the Zionist organizations which in connection with their Palestinian plans attempted to prepare groups of settlers having definite trades. However the scope of this action was very modest indeed since it depended on winning financial means as well as those willing to go to Palestine. Similar undertakings could not be carried out on a mass scale without appropriate assistance from the state in a situation where the government found it difficult to acquire sufficient financial resources for the most urgent needs. What is more, even if money had been available, the specialists trained in this way would not have been able to find employment anyway.
The same objective reasons made it impossible to overcome the concentration of Jewish laborers in small enterprises and workshops, while it should be borne in mind that over 70 per cent of the Jewish urban proletariat were employed in such small establishments.
This adverse situation was also affected by some traditional customs and religion. Since Jews observed Sabbath, it was difficult to employ in one enterprise both Jewish and Christian workers without disorganizing the rhythm of production. Even Jewish entrepreneurs unwillingly employed a Jewish labor force. Of course not all of them were Orthodox Jews and not all of them refused to work on Saturdays. However those who wanted to work on Saturdays were treated with suspicion by their employers who feared lest they belonged to a socialist or communist organization and one day might organize the factory work force in struggle for their interests. In smaller establishments, in which the owner himself took part in both the production process and management, work on Saturdays was suspended. The Jewish question in inter-war Poland was above all a social problem. Without solving the problems which were common to all working people, there was no chance of changing the lot of the Polish Jews. And the capitalist system provided no prospect of a radical overcoming of backwardness and increasing the number of jobs, despite efforts on the part of the state undertaken in particular in the second half of the 1930's.
Thus emigration continued. There are no exhaustive data on this subject. However, it is known that between 1927 and 1938 nearly 200,000 Polish Jews left Poland, of which number 74,000 went to Palestine, 34,000 to Argentina and 28,000 to the United States. The largest waves of emigration were recorded in the 1920's. Following the great slump, after 1929, those countries which up till then accepted immigrants, introduced new, ever more severe restrictions on immigration. This concerned, among other countries, the United States. For this reason in the 1930's overseas emigration limited in scope while the number of those going to Palestine increased. According to the most reliable calculations, between 1919 and 1942 almost 140,000 Polish Jews went to Palestine, that is, some 42 per cent of the total number of immigrants accepted by that country; the largest intensification of Palestine-bound emigration took place in the years 1933-36 when the number of emigrants amounted to 75,000.
In the difficult economic situation and the changes in legal and political status of Jews after Poland had regained her independence, various programs of activity were formed. The traditional program of the Agudat Israel, which boiled down to the observance of religious prescriptions, loyalty towards the state and the expectation of the Kingdom of God, could not suffice. Although the position of this party among the petite bourgeoisie was maintained by the authority of the zaddikim (a particularly important role in the leadership of the Agudat Israel was played by the famous zaddik of Gora Kalwaria who was however criticized by many), its attempts at consolidating a specific kind of ideological ghetto (the isolation of the Jews from the goyim) resulted in a gradual decrease of its influence. Step by step the party moved towards the acceptance of the prospect of building a Jewish state in Palestine.
On the other hand, the influence of the workers' parties continued to be strong. The most important role was still played by the Bund, some concepts of which were close to those of the radical left wing, though its members represented a whole variety of views. The Bund differed from the program put forward by the communists in that it demanded cultural and national autonomy for national minorities, especially for the Jews, and perceived the necessity of organizing the whole of the Jewish proletariat in one, separate national party. Many Bund leaders saw the need for dictatorship by the proletariat (the Bund program adopted in 1930 mentioned the possibility of such dictatorship). The party was decidedly opposed to the conservatives and discarded religion. It accused the Agudat Israel of defending the interests of the propertied classes to the detriment of the needs of the masses. The most outstanding leaders of the Bund were Victor Alter (1890-1941), Henryk Erlich (1882- 1941) and Samuel Zygelbojm (1895-1943).
The Bund, like the illegal Communist Party of Poland to which many Jews also belonged and the Polish Socialist Party, saw the only chance of solving the Jewish question in Poland in building a socialist society without man's exploitation by man. It sought its allies among workers of all nationalities living in Poland. It opposed all concepts of emigration since it perceived the impracticability of the idea of organizing emigration of a several million strong nation. The socialist leaders considered the Palestinian campaign to be an element weakening the forces of the proletariat fighting for a change in social relations and as a solution which at best could constitute a chance for only few.
A radical social program was also voiced by the left wing of the Po'alei Zion which saw prospects for the Jews in a socialist revolution and in introducing cultural and national autonomy. For the future, it accepted the idea of building a socialist Jewish state in Palestine and therefore it supported the Palestinian campaigns. Its leading members were Antoni Budhsbaum, Szachna Sagan and Jozef Witkin-Zerubavel (1876-1912). A much smaller following was enjoyed by the right wing of the Po'alei Zion which concentrated above all on Palestinian works, that is all activity aimed at forming. a future Jewish state, including education of qualified farmers, workers and soldiers.
All the workers, organizations, irrespective of the differences that separated them, cooperated in many important issues. They undertook a common struggle against campaigns organized by the right wing of the National Democratic Party. In Warsaw they even formed an underground organization the task of which was to put up armed resistance to the nationalist militants. Both Jews and Poles connected with the workers, movement took part in its work. http://members.core.com/~mikerose/history2.htm

Ruth,
I would appreciate it if you would contact me privately. I have seen your daughter's posting on jewishgen with my family name, Srebnick, which is not a common one. I would like to discuss your relationship to that family.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Eilat, Just two lines to thank you for your great work in the shtetl pages. I am
in contact several times a year with other Alperovich and variants in
Argentina. Pedro, whose family is from Kurenets, and who has kept in
contact with your page after I helped him reach it for the first time (and
where he suddenly found his family pictures!) and Ben Ami, a member of an
Alperovich family in our Tucuman province, whose father was from Vileyka.
I have still not reached Kurenets... My own genealogical research is almost
postponed because I am researching for other people and always several
eMails behind schedule! - butI hope to uncover some day the link of my
Alperoviches to Kurenetz - and to my fellow Alperovich.
Warm regards, Carlos
Buenos Aires

About a month ago my daughter Dina Glatter got an email from you about Zila Zilburg who lives in Rishon LeZion and heads the memorial meeting for the shtetls in the area. My mother,obm, was from Radoshkovichi and Zila knew her. (My daughter is registered with Jewish geneology.) I meant to contact you sooner about this. I'd love to have a tape of the meeting which took place in Tel Aviv 2 days ago. Please tell what is the cost and how you would like payment.
I am very curious as to what your connection is to Radoshkovichi, if I'm not being too personal. If you have the contacts, I'd also love to be put in touch with others from there who may have known my mother and her family before the holocaust. I would love more information about my family who were killed in the holocaust. Only 2 of my mother's 9 siblings survived. The rest, along with their families were exterminated. There are very few photos of anyone that survived the war.
Many thanks, Ruth

Dear Mrs. Eilat Levitan,

I found your site on the Internet. You really do a great and outstanding work. Thanks to the information I found on your site I managed to contact a number of its visitors it is for sure that it will help these people to learn more information about small Belarusian towns where their roots are from. I am ready to offer my services for the realization of plans and wishes of people who are united by mutual interests presented on your site. First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Yuri Dorn. I’m the President of the Union of Religious Jewish Congregations of Belarus. This organization comprises more than 13 000 Jews from 19 Belarusian towns. About 12 years ago I started to research Jewish heritage which has preserved until today on the territory of Belarus. I have visited more than 70 towns and ‘stetls’ where Jews lived earlier. I have gathered the collection of pictures. I also managed to gather a number of memories of local citizens about Jewish life before the Holocaust. During my visits I noted every time that actually Jewish cemeteries, synagogues and places related to the Holocaust came to desolation. It is difficult to realize that Jewish Heritage of Belarus is fading away. However, lately people who are interested in the search of their roots and forefathers’ memory preservation have begun to visit our country in increasing frequency. Our organization does what one can to help these people in their work during their being in Belarus. We have a wide experience in the field of mutual work on the Jewish cemeteries and Holocaust places restoration.
In connection with this I would like to apply with your help to everybody who is interested in work in Belarus with the proposal of cooperation.
We hope that with mutual efforts we will be able to restore and to preserve our forefathers’ memory!


Sincerely,


(Mr) Yuri Dorn iro@open.by President of URJC of Belarus

March 19, 2003 Shalom Eilat, War is coming tomorrow!
How did they debate "WAR" in Volozhin 89 years ago?
Please read : The strategy specialists' are debating the results of the oncoming war.
Volozhin during the First World War
By Reuven Rogovin
Translated from VYB p. 343, by M. Porat
It's a pleasure to read Reuven's stories. His memory was phenomenal. His humor was the quintessential Yiddish humor of the Litvak Shtetl's. One could sense in every sentence his great love for his neighbors. Reuven was born in Volozhin in 1905. He recognized the danger that the Jews would be facing under German invasion and was one of the very few Volozhiners who escaped to Russia before the Nazis entered the Shtetl. He survived the war, together with his wife and children in Russia. Part of the time he served as an officer in the Red Army. He left the USSR and made aliya through Poland in 1958. He contributed a great deal to the Volozhin Yizkor Book describing the Shtetl's every day life.
Reuven, God bless his soul, passed away in Israel in 1972.
The strategy specialists' are debating the results of the oncoming war.
Page 343
When the Austro Hungarian crown prince was killed in Sarajevo, a group of Volozhin Balebatim sat inside the Klayzl-Syngogue discussing the future events. Among them were Fayve der Shnayder (tailor), Oyzer der Raznostshik (mailman), Meyer Peshe Yentes, Naftoli der Eynbinder (book binder). They came to the conclusion that the war would not reach our shtetl and therefore the Volozhin inhabitants should be relaxed.
“ Russia is mighty and huge. She is entitled to behave as per the Tsar's desire. Russia might lead the war against the Germans in Siberia, against the Avstraks (Austrians) in Caucasus and if so would be her desire she could fight against all her enemies in the large steppes of the Ukraine or in the deserts of Mandjuria. All depends on decisions that would be made by the High Command of the Tsar's army”
Such was the conclusion of Oyzer der Raznostshik, Volozhin’s most competent "Strategist". Nahumke Telzer, the Yeshiva man, who during the debate was reading a book, lifted his head abruptly and said: “Rabeyssay (my masters), Please let me tell you a true story.”
The audience became attentive and Reb Nahumke initiate his tale:
“A Jew, a very poor tenant farmer had six very ugly and loathsome daughters. Due to their homeliness it was impossible to find bridegrooms for them. One day a shadkhn (Matchmaker) arrived in the lessee's home with exiting news. “I have an “excellent party” for your eldest (Who was the ugliest) daughter, but I cannot reveal the bridegroom's name fearing very much your anger.”
The Jew swore on his Peysses and beard that nothing evil would happen to the shadkhn after the name was told. The shadkhn became courageous and exposed the secret: “The suggested bridegroom is none other but the sole son of count Tishkevith, the Volozhin region's very rich land and forests owner.” The lessee became very angry hearing to whom his daughter was indicated to be a bride. “It could never be”. He said, “I would never let my daughter convert to Christianity.” The shadkhn left the lessee's house empty handed. But the proposed “Shiduch” began to settle in the lessee's head. His wife too was insisting, “maybe its worth accepting the proposition. We would become rich; it's not a joke to have a count as our daughter's father-in-law. It would greatly improve and probably totally alter our financial status.” The lessee called the shadkhn and told him:
“After experiencing difficult internal conflicts I decided to give my daughter as a wife to the son of the count.”
“Beautiful”, answered the shadkhn, “now we have to get to the next step, your agreement alone is not enough, now we should obtain the count's and his son's agreement.” “And the moral of this story is”, continued Reb Nokhemke, “You claim that as per her desire Russia would be able to lead the fights in Ukraine, in Mandjuria or wherever she would choose, but did you already obtain Germany's and Austria's approval? Are you sure that they would agree to lead the battles in those places, precisely?”

The speech of the Israeli born
Dr Gideon Radushkovitz at the mass grave at Dolhinov Jewish Cemetery
on the 1st of September 2002.

Without asking for your permission, I have taken it upon myself to say a few words in the name of the younger generation –the generation that did not go through the Holocaust or experience any of its horrors, but lived, breathed and were raised in the shadow of its memories from the day we were born.
We didn't have to come here to learn what had happened. We have read the books, seen the pictures, and more important, we have heard the stories at home from eye witnesses about the horrors that were perpetrated here to our families.
We have come here to our own personal valley of death, to Dolhinov, so that you could show us for the first time, and maybe the last, those same places that we grew up hearing about throughout our childhood and from which we imbibed the true value of Zionism that we have all acquired, that same value that motivated and drove us to achieve excellence in various units in the army whether as ordinary soldiers, fighters or as commanders.
Despite the fact that we are all past the age of army service, this journey is meant to add fuel to the flame that burns within each one of us in order to preserve it and pass on the torch to the next generation, so that they will be able to understand the meaning of our lives especially in Eretz Jisrael, with all the difficulties we face.
I want to thank my uncle Shlomke Shamgar for the hair-raising stories he told while we stood at the mass graves, of the direct and indirect responsibility of the local population as to what happened here. I fully identify with him.
In a few days time we will take off in a white plane with blue stripes painted on its body and the star of David on its tail, flown by an Israeli pilot, and, when its wheels are withdrawn from this cursed land, whose rivers are flowing with the blood of our dear ones, we will feel, at least some of us, a certain satisfaction at leaving behind us the murderers and their offspring, steeped in their own miserable lives. And we will return to the only place on earth which is our real home.
I cannot conclude these words without thanking Leon Rubin and whoever helped him for voluntarily taking upon himself the organization of this difficult and complicated project, the climax of which was our visit to Dolhinov. Thanks go to him for his willingness to help, his skilled organization and manner, and especially for his amiable, likeable personality which made this trip exceed all expectations.
Thank you.
Gideon Radushkovitz (Translated from Hebrew)

My father is also jacob pearlman ( original spelling perlman). i don't know if there is any relationship. Our family came from Rokov,Belarus which is about 7 kilometers from Minsk. My father came in 1913 at the age of 5. His father was already here working on a pig farm in New Jersey ( which is some job for orthodox Jews) . they then moved to Brooklyn. The Perlman's in Belarus were business people and " intellectuals" ( whatever that means) If your family comes from that part of the world write and i will furnish you with more information
My name is Ken Perlman, my great grand father Shmuel Zvi Perlman came from Rakov Belarus to the U.S. in approximately 1890.He settled in Bayonne and Linden ,N.J.
He worked as a carpenter and a house builder.My family is related to a Rockoff family that also came from Rakov.
I am interested in any information that you may have on
Rakov or other Perlman's that came from this town. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks...

Unfortunately I don't know the names of all of my father's siblings, but the ones I know are:
My grandfather: Faibe Itzik (Shraga Itzhac) Sagalowitz (burnt alive in the shul)
My grandmother: Sarah Gildenberg (died long before the war.
Some of my father's siblings:
Chaim Sagalowitz (immigrated to the U.S. around 1912 and became Hymie Siegel)
Rachel Sagalowitz, who also immigrated to the U.S. around 1912 and married Samuel Kazdin
Moshe Sagalowitz, who perished in a concentration camp with his family (one son survived the camp)
Shaya Sagalowitz, who I think was one of the Jews burnt alive with his family
Yehuda Sagalowitz, born in 1905, immigrated to Mexico with my father in 1924
Yosef Sagalowitz (my father), born in 1901, emigrated to Mexico in 1924.
There were several other siblings, but I do not have the names, and all perished in the holocaust.

Unfortunately I don't know the names of all of my father's siblings, but the ones I know are:
My grandfather: Faibe Itzik (Shraga Itzhac) Sagalowitz (burnt alive in the shul)
My grandmother: Sarah Gildenberg (died long before the war.
Some of my father's siblings:
Chaim Sagalowitz (immigrated to the U.S. around 1912 and became Hymie Siegel)
Rachel Sagalowitz, who also immigrated to the U.S. around 1912 and married Samuel Kazdin
Moshe Sagalowitz, who perished in a concentration camp with his family (one son survived the camp)
Shaya Sagalowitz, who I think was one of the Jews burnt alive with his family
Yehuda Sagalowitz, born in 1905, immigrated to Mexico with my father in 1924
Yosef Sagalowitz (my father), born in 1901, emigrated to Mexico in 1924.
There were several other siblings, but I do not have the names, and all perished in the holocaust.

Three murdered Rakov people from the list obviously belonged to my

According to my mother-in-law Nehama Hayutin, her uncle Benzion (Benzi) Pupkin and Feiga, his wife, were a childless couple who lived in Rakov. Rakov was in Poland so Nehama never visited there (she moved from Slutsk to Leningrad in 1928 when she was 12). Therefore she is not sure that they were murdered in Rakov. Anyway, they did not survive the Holocaust, and Nehama never heard about any other address rather than Rakov. The photo I am sending has no date or inscription on it. It was taken in Minsk before the Revolution.
Benzion's parents were called Tanhum (Tanhel) and Nehama but my mother-in-law never saw them because Rakov was in Poland and Slutsk was in the Soviet Union after the Revolution. She does not know her Grandmother's maiden name. Nehama's mother Braina Pupkin married her father Isaac Hayutin of Slutsk in 1912. We have their photos, too, on the wedding day and with their three children born in Slutsk, and even a vignette from their wedding. I'll write about the Pinkas of Rakov and other things relating to it later on.
With regards from Nehama and her daughter Larisa (nee Neiman),
Sincerely,
Yehiel Ladizhinsky .

My father was born in Rakow in 1901 and emigrated to Mexico in 1924 together with a brother and a cousin.
My grandfather and many of my father's siblings stayed in Rakow, and I do know that my grandfather and some of my other relatives were part of the 950 Jews burnt alive in the Synagogue.
I saw a "Yizkor" book about Rakow in New York (it was printed in Israel), and they list the names of the Jews that were killed that way, and, in addition of me knowing the fact from before, my grandfather's name is among them.
As a matter of fact, in one of the stories in Yiddish from a survivor that was with the partizaners and came back to Rakow after the war to visit the ruins, he mentions the "Kalter Shul", were, according to him, on all Saturdays you could hear the voice of the person davening, "Faibe Itzie the Katzev" (who's complete name was Faibe Itzik Sagalowitz, and who was my grandfather).
Since none of my relatives born in Rakow is still alive, I don't have even the names of the other Jews from the town, so the other descendants of people from Rakow would not mean anything to me.
But if in the tape that is going to be made there will be some description of life in Rakow, I would be interested in a copy of the tape.
By the way, you mentioned that Aharon Greengoltz' mother was Botwinik.
There was a Botwinik in Mexico (I was born in Mexico), who was also from Rakow. I don't remember the first name of that person, but his son was named Moshe, probably in memory of a relative from Rakow.

The Russian Imperial government prepared census reports for each Uyezd
(district) within the Gubernia (province). The reports called Revision
Lists for our district were stored prior to 1842 in the Minsk Archives and
between 1842 and 1917 in the Vilna (Vilnius) Archives.
Harold Rhode advised that other than the 1850 list and its amendments, none
of the other post 1842 Revision Lists for our district survived WW2.
We initially had a contact who could make copies of the documents and a
proposed cost of $2600 was discussed. I contacted our members and suggested
raising this money to acquire and later translate the entire 1850 Revision
List.
Before this could get off the ground, someone contacted the chief archivist
and raised a stink and we were informed that no further copying would be
allowed. Dave Fox then started asking the Family History Center in Salt Lake City to
change their policy concerning the types of records they film and to take
on this job. Three months ago we were finally given a negative response.
Just this week, I was informed that a reliable person had been found who
could translate the revision list and take down a manual translation. The
costs mentioned were very reasonable. I was then asked in what priority would we ask this person to do the
research. What towns or cities should be done first? With over 150 cities,
towns and shtetls, this question sounded very difficult to answer.
After some thought a logical answer came to mind. Very few of you have
actually contributed any money and the fund now contains only about
$700.00. I feel that it is only right that those persons who contributed
the most money should be granted the most benefit.
Accordingly we are breaking down the list of contributors by the
cities/towns/shtetls that each is interested in. The final list will not be
prepared until all of the arrangements have been made, so if you want your
location to be given priority, you should contribute or increase your
contribution to the fund. All contributions are tax deductible for instructions see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Belarus.html If you have read the Belarus SIG web page, you know that a section has been
reserved for our district. If you look at the tremendous work done by the
members of the Lida & Minsk districts, you know that we are falling way
behind in making our research available to the members of the SIG.
Several of our members have their own private web pages for their town or
their family. If you are willing to share your web page with the SIG, Ed Rosenbaum can
set up a link to your web page from the Vilieka Uyezd section of the SIG's
page. Those interested should contact me.
If you have done research of your town and have a report with or without
photos, but don't have a web site, please let me know.
If any of you have the knowledge to set up web pages and can contribute
time to help those of us who don't have that knowledge, please advise.
In other words lets get this group moving.
Best regards, Steve

My wife Larisa's grandmother was Braina, daughter of Tanhel Pupkin and Nehama. Braina was born in Rakov about 1885 and died in Leningrad in 1936 where she was buried in the Jewish Cemetery.
Braina's daughter Nehama Neiman (Hayutin) was born in Slutsk in 1917 and she now lives with me and her daughter Larisa in Ariel
I am sending the photo of Hehama's uncle Reb Mikhl Pupkin (Braina's brother) and his family. The inscription on the back in Yiddish reads :

FOR BEST MEMORY TO MY SISTER AND BROTHER-IN-LAW FROM MY FAMILY PUPKIN. RAKOV 8TH DECEMBER 1924.

Seated are Mikhl and his wife Henya, my mother-in-law's aunt. Standing from right to left are their children: Tankhum, Hinda, Abram and Naftali. All of them perished in Rakov. There were two other children who lived in Leningrad: Isaac and Wolf. Isaac escaped the Poles (who beat him for being a Communist in Rakov)during the Civil War and worked as Nachalnik Tsekha (production chief) at the Kirov Works in Leningrad. He was shot dead during the Stalin purges of 1937. His brother Wolf had then a heart attack and died. (He adopted his wife's surnam Khotenever, they had a daughter). Isaac's wife Regina was deported to Smolensk as the "wife of the enemy of the people" and their son Yoseph fell in the battle of Berlin in May 1945.

There was another brother, Reb Benzion Pupkin, married to Feiga (We have their photo, too), and they were a childless couple presumably in Rakov who did not survive the war, either. My wife's aunt Tsilia went to Rakov after 1945 and did not dind any Jews there.

I can add some information about the Rabbi of Rakov, Reb Hirsh-Shlomo Finkel, who died on the 23d of February, 1942 in Rakov. He managed to send the Pinkas of Rakov to his son Uri Finkel in Minsk (a cousin of Avraham Even-Shoshan) and now the Pinkas is in the Archives of the Hebrew University of Ramat Ram. The Pinkas (1810-1913 in Hebrew) has an addition written by Uri Finkel in Yiddish.

Sincerely yours,
Yehiel (valery)Ladizhinski of Ariel

The destruction of Rakov Jews
Report written in August 1945
Translated From "MEMORY" Volozhin Region's Book in Belarussian language
The committee head: Svitko I.T. - Committee members: Yatskaviets I.D., Kirzov
P.M., Nissinov M.F., Garshkov, Lavrishkov, Batalin submitted this report about
the crimes done by the Fascist occupants in the Radushkovits Region.
Witnesses: Rutkovska Leonida B., Gerasimovitsh, Grinholtz Vosip, Isakovitzh,
Grinholtz Aron, Davidovitsh.
The witnesses reported that on June 14 th , 1942, the Germans had assembled
forty-five Jews in Rakov, as if to work. They were led to Baruzints two
kilometers from Rakov. The Germans gave them shovels and ordered to dig pits.
After the pits were ready, the Germans placed the forty-five captives facing
the pits and shot them with machine guns.
The same year on August 29 th the Germans assembled all the Rakov-Ghetto Jews,
forced them to dig pits, afterwards they counted hundred and five persons and
ordered them to lie in those pits. All of them were shot at the gendarme
Drobel's command.
The Jews who survived were led to Rakov. On the way they were ordered to sing
and to dance. Satisfied by the concert, the murderers forced all the captives
to lie down with their faces to the soil. At the gendarme Ferverg's command
they were shot, each according to the killers' choice. One of the bandits cut
the physician's head off with his axe because he was not satisfied with the
victim's song. Also in this Action, one hundred and five persons were killed.
On, February 4 th , 1942, the Politsay commander Mikhal Ziankevitsh ordered
all the Jews to assemble on the synagogue courtyard with their belongings for
departure to Minsk. When the Jews assembled they were ordered to put all the
valuables aside and to enter the synagogue. Some of them tried to go back, but
they were beaten to death with rifle shafts. Crying children were pierced by
rifle bayonets and thrown over the crowded heads. The synagogue doors and
windows were blocked with nailed planks. The murderers spilled gasoline on the
walls and set the building on fire. Nine hundred twenty eight Jews were burnt
to death on that winter day in the Rakov synagogue.

Pages about the Volozhin Holocaust,
By Fruma nee Shulman Lifshitz (Gapanovitsh).
Extracts from Yiz.Vol.Book p. 554, translated by M. Porat
After the Soviets occupied Volozhin, I returned to town from Ivianits to teach Yiddish in the Hebrew School which was turned into a Yiddish Primary School. In 1940/41 it changed to a Russian School, the Polish School to a Belorussian and the Polish Gymnasia to a Russian High School.
In June 1941, before the German occupation, our family lived in Leybe Berman's house. Our girls, Shoshanele and Hayele, both born in Volozhin, we sent to my parents Alter and Fayga Shulman in Radoshkovitsh to pass there the summer vacation. When the Nazis invaded our country, most of the Soviet citizens who lived in Western Belarus ran away towards the old border (Poland/ Soviet Union pre 1939). It was located right in the outskirts of Radoshkovitsh, so we decided, my husband Yakov Lifshitz and I, to follow their way. We took the way to Radoshkovitsh by foot to join my parents and our daughters. We walked the entire night. Yakov became totally exhausted. He stopped near the shtetl. I entered Radoshkovitsh alone. I only met there my father.. My mother, sisters Bracha Shulman and Heina Berman and her family, brother Israel Shulman and both my daughters had run away to the hamlet Ordanka, which in normal days served as a summer resting place. Radoshkovitsh was overcrowded by refugees from Poland and Lithuania. Meanwhile, my husband recovered and arrived in town. We went to Ordanka, from where we took our daughters, and continued with them on our way, this time to Horodok, where Kheyne my elder sister lived.
I went twice to Volozhin. I took some of the clothing we left there to exchange for food for the girls. I had the opportunity to enter the well guarded ghetto through Pinches the smith's workshop, which stood near the Ghetto fence. I met there Sonia nee Dubinski Berkovitsh the daughter-in-law of my aunt Keyle nee Shulman Berkovitsh. (sister of my father Alter). They were astonished to see me. They were told that our entire family had been killed.
I returned to Horodok, where mass-slaughter survivors from Volozhin and Molodetshno arrived. The Germans established a small concentration work camp in Krasne, a crossroad junction midway between Molodetshno and Radoshkovitsh, where able Jews from Volozhin, Mir, Lida, Novogrudok, Horodok and other places were brought to maintain the railroad. My husband was among them. When we separated I told him "Our fate, mine and the girls is determined, but you will survive because you are regarded as an efficient Jew" - so was our naïve opinion.
Every week some workers were allowed to go and bring food from Horodok into the Krasne camp. My little six year old daughter caught a heavy scurvy gums illness. Mr Ratskin the Judenrat head pitied me and arranged for Yakov a permission to visit us. The bitter end arrived at the Shabbat that Yakov spent with us, on July 11th 1942. The Horodok and vicinity Jews did not sense the oncoming danger. Their last sleep had been a sleep of the just.
In the morning at day break the Gestapo and its local assistants intruded the Ghetto to take out the Jews. At our home five persons lodged. There were three hiding places. The hideout in which I concealed myself with my little girls was discovered by the local politsays [what is this word?] after the action had passed. Mr. Ratskin, who was an elderly man, could not support the strangling atmosphere and was obliged to go outside. His going out had provoked our hiding disclosure. They shot at Yakov and killed him. The murderers gathered all the Jews into the square to be selected. Those they found able to work were transferred to the Krasne camp. The old ones, invalids and children were sent to death. Among the sentenced to die was also Fruma, Tsivya Tsart's mother. She had been beat bestially, until she was covered with blood. The Germans enclosed all of them inside a barn, shot them and burned it.
translator's note: (as Fruma told me this evening)
In this barn, 900 Horodok Jews found their tragic fate, along with Fruma Lifshits's mother and her five grand kids, among them Shoshanele and Hayele Lifshits. Yakov had been shot by one of their Horodok gentile neighbors. Fruma witnessed her husband's death and had seen the bestial murderers throw away his body. [Horodok Memorial - scanned picture This memorial tombstone was erected in the 1990s near the site where 900 Horodok Jews were slaughtered. The plate on the left side (written in Hebrew) is dedicated to Yakov Lifshitz and to his daughters Shoshanele and Hayele.] I was expelled to Krasne. Heyne my older sister was enclosed in the Krasne Concentration camp, and my younger sister was placed with me in the Krasne Ghetto. There I met people from Volozhin, among them Yosef Tabakhovitsh and his wife Elke (born Shaker). Tsviya Tsart dwelled beside me and my sister on the same planks. It was impossible to safeguard any hygienic conditions, and a typhus epidemic broke out. As a result, the three of us were hospitalized in a house outside the Ghetto. and we were privileged to be inspected by the Gestapo physician. He used to oversee the patients and determined by his cane movement which people to carry out to the "bath house" i.e. for execution. After typhus I was very feeble, so Father would endanger himself by infiltrating from the camp into the ghetto to bring some grains to fortify my body. We were brought into the "bath house". The Germans examined our withered bodies, but in some way our fate was not decided. Thanks to my poor health status I was released from work for a few days. I used this time to seek food for my hungry friends in the Krasne Ghetto.
Once I went with my brother in law and with Ester Rogovin from Horodok. We went into a hamlet to gather bread. On the way back we came up against guards from the German Police. When they passed near us we distinguished red bands on the Germans’ forearms, but they were actually Russian partisans who had fought a German unit the day before. They had won the battle, took the German uniforms and wore them. We talked to them and they agreed to take Jews who would carry arms and escape from the Krasne camp. We returned to the Krasne camp and told everyone the exciting news. We found ways to secretly buy rifles. One day a group of us was able to cross the rails and join the partisans. They accepted us thanks to efforts made by Eliezer Rogovin from Volozhin who was already with them.. A new unit was founded by the name of "Staritski" within the Tshkalov brigade. We met some Volozhiners in the forest, among them Feygele Perski, Hirshl Rogovin, Ishayahu Lieberman and Pashe Perski wife of Simha Perski. I was transferred into a partisans’ arms repair workshop after a little time, where I worked until liberation on July 1944.
From time to time bitter fights occurred between German forces and partisan units. The hardest German attacks broke out in July 1943. During this period many partisan garrisons existed in the forests of Belarus. In order to fight them, the Germans organized the Vlassov army, named after the famous Russian traitor General Vlassov. Those units were composed of Belarus, Kazakhs, Lithuanians, Ukrainians and other anti-Semites, all of them Hooligan-murderers. Their first mission was the destruction of hamlets and farms near the forests. The fate of the peasants in those hamlets was not much better than that of the Jews. Many Christians ran to the forest. The Germans opened an offensive on the forest, by heavy shooting, shelling and setting fires. We were obliged to disperse. Kopl Kagan, Peshka Potashnik, her brothers Yehuda and Yosef, my brother-in-law Berman, and I found a hideout from which we got out just in time to meet the liberating Red Army.
Together with Peshka Potashnik we went through Krasne and Horodok into Volozhin. I decided to leave the shtetl where each stone was impregnated with blood of our dearest. The Soviet authorities proposed to me that I teach in a Belarussian school. I refused as I was not ready to teach youngsters who willingly assisted the Nazis in murdering Jews. I crossed the border to Bialostock in Poland. But here in the Land of the Jews’ extermination camps, where the A.K.(Armiya Krayova), blood thirsty anti-Semites awaited us, I could not stay. I continued my wandering. From Bialostock I went to Lublin, and then with a Zionist refugee organization, I went through Czechoslovakia to Hungary and Romania. After the victory in 1945 we did not want to remain in a Communist-ruled country behind the Iron Curtain. With the assistance of the Zionist Organization, we crossed the border to Austria and then went on to Italy. We passed a Hakhshara near Barry, and then we waited to go to the Land of Israel. The British Government had refused to deliver the certificates permitting our entry into our Land, so we went to Israel with the Illegal Aliya. Along with 170 other Jews, we boarded a small boat. I arrived in Eretz Israel on September of 1945. Shulman, Alter and his wife; Fayga - FRUMA'S PARENTS
their daughters:Heina (Berman) and Bracha - FRUMA'S SISTERS
their sons: Hanoch (killed serving in the Polish army) and Israel
Shulman, - FRUMA'S BROTHERS all perished in the holocaust
Fruma had a brother ITSKHOK. He was in the States during the war.
I talked with Fruma nee Shulman a holocaust survivor (now Fruma Lifshitz Gafnovitz in Tel Aviv #36057481 from the U.S you dial 011 972 and then the number) who was born in Radoshkovichi about 93 years ago. She told me that when she was growing up in Radoshkovichi there were three Shulman families in Radoshkovichi and she is related to two of them as both her mother and her father were born Shulmans. Her father was Alper or Alter Shulman and her mother was the daughter of Shaya Shulman. Her mother had uncles and brothers in Pennsylvania. There were two brothers and two sisters of her mother, one that she met in New York was RASHA FIDELHARP (?). She also said she had relatives in Miami.

In JewishGen Family Finder I found that you are searching for Rothstein.
Avraham Even Shoshan (HaMilon) was a Rothstein from Radoshkovichi. I talked with his son in Jerusalem. in the business list i found many Rothkowskis in Rakov but not Rothstein.
AVOTAYNU; They also have the pinkas (register) of the the Talmud Torah society in Rakov. This
document (1810-1912) contains lists of its electors, lists of the society's
officers and minutes of its meetings.
In 1944 my mother, Botwinnik Evgeniya Samuilovna (Zelda daughter of Shmuil Botwinnik born in 1920 in rakov) came to Kurenetz. After her release from partisans she looked for her relatives. She found out that all her family was killed in Rakov. She moved to Kurenetz following some of her Jewish friends from the partisans. And that is how to lonely people met each other and established a family In Rakov (38 km from Minsk), Jews lived since the epoch of Rzech Pospolitaya, in the first quarter of the 17th century. They were tax-farmers of customs, public housing, salt and other collections, rented various areas of economic significance, and were skillful craftsmen. Ceramic products and tiles from Rakov were known far beyond Belarus boundaries. In 1897 Jews here amounted to 2,168 persons, or 59,5% of the total city population. Before the beginning of the Soviet-German war, 928 Jews lived in Rakov. According to testimonies of Mikhail and Girsh Rayak, police were organized in Rakov the first day after arrival of the Germans. Robberies of Jewish possessions began immediately. On September 26, 1941, Gebitscomissar Hendel gave orders to bring the Torah to the Rakov Square and to burn it, while Jewish girls were ordered to dance and sing "Ha-Tikvah". On February 4, 1942, Jews were driven into the Kholodnaya Synagogue, their valuables were taken away, they were undressed, tortured and beaten. Gasoline was then poured over the building and grenades were thrown (29). Dora Iveivekhman remembered that a month after there could still be felt a smell of burnt flesh in the air. Overall from August 1941 to February 1942, 1,050 people were killed in Rakov (30). BELARUS NEWSLETTER

.....After that I went in the direction of Lida and stopped in two cities - Rakov and Ivenets. Rakov was completely burned down. The senior priest of a catholic chapel Ganusevich, whom I talked with for a long time, told me about the murder o f the Jews. He told it in detail. It's true. His tooth was hurting and he was sitting at the dentist's, a Jew, when the talks were in progress. The dentist thought that they were going to kill him, and the Germans bargained to postpone his departure until he finishes filling the tooth. The Germans, who flirted with the residents, asked how much time it would take. If it's half an hour, that is permissible, but if it's two hours, then it is not - they are in a hurry. The Jews were gathered in the Synagogue and burned. Ganusevich saw how the Jewish women attempted to throw their children out of the fire and how the Germans killed the children. There was an executioner in Ivenets who was called "The German", he performed the killings himself. He enjoyed it. He was a sadist. He killed in different ways. Mainly, he formed up the people and tried how many he could shoot at one time. I visited the tank division outside Ivenets. In the evening the general heading the division was visited by a partisan group representative, a young girl. It was dark, and we sat under a tree in the courtyard. I couldn't see her face. We were having supper. She informed us that the partisans have already prepared a bridge for the tanks and that they can move to the west without ...

She arrived in NYC in August, 1888 on the SS Viola with her two oldest daughters, Nechame and Fegele. She died in NYC April 2, 1942 in NYC. Her father was Hirsch Schulman, her mother Perla Taub. By family report, Hannah had many brothers and sisters, but only one who is known to have come to NYC, Hode (Huddie, or Ida). She was born 1871 in Radoshkovichi, and married Isidor Klein of Vilna there. By family report, a brother, Samuel, emigrated to Canada, but I've been unable to trace him. There is a vague family report about attempts to rescue a niece from Vilna during the 1930, who ended up as a dentist in Israel, but I have no real facts about Samuel or the niece..

Email to Stew Gottlieb of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island,
from Jason I
Alpert.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Recently, I've been reviewing -- and digitizing -- my vast collection of
Jewish
genealogical data, acquired MOSTLY between 1947 and 1986.
(This is mainly because cousins have recently been besieging me with
requests for
information and help. This has forced me to try to get organized -- and
digitized.) My data is for the area of present-day Belarus that is between Minsk and
Vilna
(Vilius, ugh!) -- the same area that is of interest to Eilat
Gordin-Levitan
(www.eilatgordinlevitan.com), Randy Daitch, and Stephen Cohen.
In the course of doing this, I visited your "LINEAGE INDEX BY TOPIC"
Webpage
http://www.jewishgen.org/jgsli/Lineage.htm. I was astounded to see your entry:
The Annihilation of Lithuanian Jews by Ephraim Oshry in English
VIII:2-3:9
(the entry appeared twice). I presume that this is a translation of Rabbi Ephraim Oshry's classic
book in
Yiddish, "Khurban Li-te". When I lived in the Lower East Side of Manhattan (1969-1997), I was very
close with
Rabbi Oshry. He even gave me a copy of this book (which I've lost). And
he'd
encouraged me to translate it into English (which I never got around to
do). Now I am
overjoyed to discover that this book -- a veritable treasure-trove of
genealogical
information -- seems to have been translated.
Please email me the details -- is it REALLY TRUE that this book has been
translated?
(Must be "Moshiach's tsayt'n"!) How can I get it or see it?
I must confess, I don't even know what "LINEAGE" is. Is it your
publication? ------------------------------------------------------------------ Actually, I came across your webpage through a Google Search for "Naomi
Bard Feller".
I made this Google Search upon my finding the following note on an old
3x5
index-card: "04-29-1984: I met Michael Castroll of West Haven, Ct. He had been
referred to me by
genealogist Naomi Bard Feller." I vaguely recollect communicating with Naomi Bard Feller. But, in my
records, I can't
find any info re her address. Re her, your webpage has the entry:
Naomi Bard Feller Our Rumanian Roots V:1: 6
If you know her email address, please forward a copy of this to her.
And if you know Randy Daitch's email address, please forward copy to
him.
Thank you, Jason I Alpert (Yos'l Alperowicz).

http://www.forward.com/issues/2003/03.01.31/news6.html General Wesley Clark, the supreme allied commander of NATO during the Kosovo war and CNN military analyst was Raised a Southern Baptist by his mother in Little Rock — his father died when he was 4, and his mother remarried — Clark is the grandson of a Jew, Jacob Nemerovsky, who escaped from the pogroms of Czarist Russia in about 1894-95. He remembers his father, Benjamin Kanne, a lawyer who served in Chicago's Corporation Counsel, as "a happy man who loved life."
Still, it wasn't until he was in his 20s that Clark learned that he descends from "generations of rabbis" from Minsk, as he told the Forward in a telephone interview. "We did a genealogy," he said. He keeps in touch with a large Jewish family dispersed from Georgia to California. Clark debunked press reports that came out during the 1990s suggesting that his family's Jewish refugee background influenced his fight for the Kosovars. "I don't know if it had any direct impact," he said. "I was trying to do my duty at the time. Everybody has a responsibility to do his duty." But he credits his Jewish background with raising his consciousness to the civil rights movement. He has distinct memories of the Little Rock integration crisis of 1957, when he was 12. "I saw first hand the racial prejudice, the civil disobedience, the intolerance," he said. As an adult, "I've often gone back to that experience. It's something I've related to." He also cited his Jewish background in relation to his feeling "sick" that in 1994 the "U.S. didn't encourage the U.N. to stop the genocide" in Rwanda. "When you can make a difference, you should," he said. - Tuesday, February 04, 2003 at 17:48:07 (PST)

found your Web site today and was very impressed by your project, and
happy to find such a treasure trove of information and pictures.
I am researching the Kramer and Alperovich families from Kurenets, as well
as the Isaacson family from Radoshkovichi, to whom I am related.
My great-grandmother was Doba Isaacson nee Kramer, who is shown in the
center of the Passover 1922 photo (#r-6) on the Radoshkovichi portion of
your Web site. Through her, I am also related to Nechemia Alperovich, who
appears in the top-left photo in your Kurenets page. In fact, I met with
Nechemia several months ago in Kibbutz Ein Shemer. At the age of 88-89, he
is my oldest living relative and he showed me this very photo in his album.
I am trying to establish some links between the Kramer, Alperovich and
Isaacson families and am running into difficulties the further back in time
I reach. I have already extracted whatever info I could from the Kurenets
memorial book, but have not been able to proceed further.
Gilad
I found out that Gilad's great-grandmother; Doba Isaacson nee Kremer was the daughter of Yehoshua leib Hacohen Kremer and a woman from the Alperovitz family.
Doba Isaacson's brother, Mendel Kremer pictured; http://eilatgordinlevitan.com/kurenets/k_pix/kurenets_portraits/31701_14_b.gif
His son; Moshe Kremer as well as his children Ashke, Bushka and chaim survived the war.
Ashke, Bushka and chaim died in the U.S.
Chaim Kremer had a son that now lives in California. Ashke has family in the Chicago area (I met her very charming grandson, 20 years old Loren)
Moshe Kremer was a partisan during the war picture; http://eilatgordinlevitan.com/kurenets/k_pix/partisans/123101_2_b.gif
and later joined the Red Army. The survivors of Kurenets did not hear from him and assumed that he was killed. They were very pleasantly surprised when he came to Israel in the 1950s.
Michael son of Baruch Kramnik of Kurenets picture; http://eilatgordinlevitan.com/kurenets/k_pix/kramnik/22501_3_b.gif
had a similar story- only he died in the USSR- only in the 1990s is first cousin Bela nee Kramnik found out that he survived and reunited in Israel with his widow and children

Since early time Sula and Perkla rivers were main roads for Rubezhevichi habitants.During Russian principality, vodka trade was under state hard control and became less popular among Jewish businessmen.

Thank you so much for all the information. I found one of our family called Khurgel in the surname list. "Vedomosti records (1870s-1890s) for Rubezhevichi (contributed by Vitaly Charny ". I will have to contact him to tell me if there is any more information to be found.
I am really grateful to you for this and have forwarded this info to another person (Barry Hurwitz) who has posted an enquiry. I'll forward you his email.

Subject: Rubezhevichi


I saw your posting on the Belarus SIG.
I too have been attempting to research Rubezhevichi.
My ggf was born there in 1882 and emigrated to New York in 1896.
We know relatively little about the place.
I understand that the Mormon library has some marriage, death and birth records, but I have not yet examined them and I don't know how complete they are.
There is a Yizkor book but it is not translated and I do not have a copy-- but I can get you the name of someone who has it. He has also prepared a historical sketch about his family, but it did not touch on anyone I knew about.
I strikes me that if we can gather a "critical mass" of people interested in the town, the first step should be to translate the book into English.
You will find some scattered historical info if you check on JewishGen. Anatoly Charny has prepared a historical summary. I'll look up some of my links and send them on.
I hope we can work together-- it has been challenging because so few people seem interested in Rubezhevichi.
Please let me know if you have any information. I eagerly await your reply.
Barry

I wanted to first of all thank you for putting together such a wonderful
site. The wealth of information I was able to find is phenomenal.
I am also curious if you are interested in receiving and possibly posting
additional photographs to the site. My father, Arkady Gringauz
and his brother Yakov Gringauz, have a number of pictures from
the 30s and 50s. They also were able to identify individuals on the
photographs where you don't have names listed.
My father's grandmother on the mother's side was named Rachil' (Rachel)
Lipman - this is her maiden name. Her married name was Noll' (her husband's name was Lazer and her brother Israel).
Rachil' had two other sisters - Rashka and Genya-Malka married Sam Cohen; and a brother Yosef Lipman (an actor in Israel). Both of these sisters came to the US at
the turn of the century and the brother ended up in Israel.
Their father's name is Yale (Yoel)Lipman

In Rakov (38 km from Minsk), Jews lived since the epoch of Rzech Pospolitaya, in the first quarter of the 17th century. They were tax-farmers of customs, public housing, salt and other collections, rented various areas of economic significance, and were skillful craftsmen. Ceramic products and tiles from Rakov were known far beyond Belarus boundaries. In 1897 Jews here amounted to 2,168 persons, or 59,5% of the total city population. Before the beginning of the Soviet-German war, 928 Jews lived in Rakov. According to testimonies of Mikhail and Girsh Rayak, police were organized in Rakov the first day after arrival of the Germans. Robberies of Jewish possessions began immediately. On September 26, 1941, Gebitscomissar Hendel gave orders to bring the Torah to the Rakov Square and to burn it, while Jewish girls were ordered to dance and sing "Ha-Tikvah". On February 4, 1942, Jews were driven into the Kholodnaya Synagogue, their valuables were taken away, they were undressed, tortured and beaten. Gasoline was then poured over the building and grenades were thrown (29). Dora Iveivekhman remembered that a month after there could still be felt a smell of burnt flesh in the air. Overall from August 1941 to February 1942, 1,050 people were killed in Rakov (30). BELARUS NEWSLETTER

.....After that I went in the direction of Lida and stopped in two cities - Rakov and Ivenets. Rakov was completely burned down. The senior priest of a catholic chapel Ganusevich, whom I talked with for a long time, told me about the murder o f the Jews. He told it in detail. It's true. His tooth was hurting and he was sitting at the dentist's, a Jew, when the talks were in progress. The dentist thought that they were going to kill him, and the Germans bargained to postpone his departure until he finishes filling the tooth. The Germans, who flirted with the residents, asked how much time it would take. If it's half an hour, that is permissible, but if it's two hours, then it is not - they are in a hurry. The Jews were gathered in the Synagogue and burned. Ganusevich saw how the Jewish women attempted to throw their children out of the fire and how the Germans killed the children. There was an executioner in Ivenets who was called "The German", he performed the killings himself. He enjoyed it. He was a sadist. He killed in different ways. Mainly, he formed up the people and tried how many he could shoot at one time. I visited the tank division outside Ivenets. In the evening the general heading the division was visited by a partisan group representative, a young girl. It was dark, and we sat under a tree in the courtyard. I couldn't see her face. We were having supper. She informed us that the partisans have already prepared a bridge for the tanks and that they can move to the west without delay. T he partisans have cleared the Naliboskaya Pushcha near Ivenets from Germans and the road was open forth tanks. From her accent I determined her nationality. They had her stay for supper. The girl turned out to be a student of the Minsk University (3) and she said that there was quite a lot of them (Jews - L. S .), without stating the number. She said that many Jews-vostochniki are fighting in groups in Western Belarus (4). The talk was all business, the girl was in a hurry and I couldn't question her in detail about the fate of other Jews. This was a first encouraging meeting. Later, when saying goodbye in the hut, I could see her more clearly, and I saw a young pretty Jewish girl with a revolver, fighting. This was a great consolation and a great support. I then continued in the direction of Vilna. All the cities between Minsk and Vilna were destroyed. There weren't many residents, but still I managed to find them. They all spoke about the same. About the fate of the Jews, about their death, noting that some of them left for the woods. I want to point out one circumstance, a difference that existed between the Jews of Western and Eastern regions of Belarus. There are more partisans there, and this is due mainly to the fact that Jews in Western Belarus were not killed immediately. In Western Belarus and in Lithuania the extermination of Jews was stretched out to 2-3 years. People were able to organize resistance, escapes, to leave. They had time to look around. Our (in Eastern Belarus - L. S .) Jews were killed un expectedly, without giving them a chance to collect themselves, and there the situation was different. But this number is insignificant, since it was extremely difficult to escape. In order to become a partisan, one had to gain possession of a weapon. The first German you take a weapon from is the most difficult one. Without the first German you don't have a weapon and you get captured by the Germans. A soldier gets his gun, but a partisan has to obtain his gun himself. This was extremely difficult, and with few exceptions only physically strong young people were able to accomplish this. In Smorgon, the exceptional national policy of Germans was evident. In the Czar's times Smorgon was quite a big city. It had a tanning industry, produced footwear and bagels for Petersburg. Then there were 40,000 people living in the city. During the Polish period (5), Smorgon had a population of only 8,000 people, among whom half were Jews, as was the case in practically all the cities of Western Belarus. The other part of the population was divided in half into Catholics and members of the Orthodox Church. It was difficult to discern between Belarus and Polish population. A person himself announced whether he is orthodox or catholic. If he is catholic, he thinks that he is a Pole, and if he is orthodox, then he is either a Belarus or a Ukrainian. The Jews in Smorgon were killed relatively quickly. 4,000 people remained. Smorgon was announced a Polish city, with Polish as an official language. Belarus population was attacked . Then Smorgon was announced a Belarus city and attacks on the Poles started, Polish was a forbidden language, and the Poles were being exterminated. Some time had passed, and Smorgon was adjoined with Lithuania, even though there wasn't even one Lithuanian there. Few fascists that arrived from Kaunas started carrying out Lithuanisation and exterminating Belarus and Polish population equally. This is a very demonstrational policy, to set one section of a population against the other. While in Vilna Lithuanian fascists were killing Poles, in Kaunas Estonian fascists were killing Lithuanians. There was a very complicated diagram of various characteristics of national punitive groups and murders that were being committed.....

Prominent Native Born in Vandziogala, Lithuania:
Rav Meir Robinson became rabbi of Krok [Krakes] in 1878, later in Sventzion [Svencionys] 1883 and from 1886 until 1930 rabbi of Radoshkowitz [near Minsk]. He died in Jerusalem in 1933.
Rabbi Meir Rabinson Rubinson Family pictures http://eilatgordinlevitan.com/kurenets/k_pages/rubinson.html
from the yizkpor book;
My heart is beating, and my hand trembles as I try to concentrate and write for this book of remembrance of a town which was destroyed by evil men. I knew Radoshkowitz and its kind and enlightened people, and it pains me when I think of their bitter end. But I was glad to respond to the request to write about my father-in-law, the venerable Rabbi Meir Rabinson, who served as the town's spiritual leader for fifty years. He was kind and reasonable, friendly and very popular, and thus, left his imprint on the town and its people.
He was the son of Rabbi Yehoshua Zvi from Venzigola in Kovna county, who immigrated to Jerusalem and taught Torah there for a few years. In his youth, Rabbi Meir was known as the brilliant one from Venzigola. He was most talented and had a wonderful memory, and when he was accepted at the Yeshiva in Kroky, in Kovna County, at a very early age, he was known as one of the great Rabbis of Zamut. The great rabbis of the time, like our Rabbi Yitzhak Elhanan from Kovna, Rabbi Yoseph Zcharyahu Stern from Shavil and Rabbi Alexander Moshe from Rassain, admired him as one of the best of his generation. Even then he was known for his extensive knowledge of Talmud and as an innovator in Bible studies, which were printed in biblical monthlies like, "Yagdil Torah," which was published in Odessa. In those days he was known as "Rabbi Meirke from Kroky." Later he became the rabbi of Radoshkowitz, and he was known as one of the "greats" of his generation. He only added to his knowledge, which was very impressive. He knew all of the Bavli Talmud and all its interpretations by heart. His knowledge of the late writing was so extensive that he was among the few rabbis who would decide in questions regarding Jewish life in his town and the areas around it. Many rabbis from communities far away invited him to come and decide in matters regarding their communities. Even Rabbi Yerucham from Minsk would call on him to decide in difficult matters.
In addition to his great knowledge of the Torah, Rabbi Meir was a practical man with a good understanding of people. His knowledge of the Torah was like a fountainhead, and lucky were those who studied with him. He was a prolific writer. He filled many volumes with his wisdom and many innovations in Torah, Halacha and legends. All his writings are kept in the National Book Depository in Jerusalem. Some of his innovations were published, but most of his writing is still waiting to be published. Only then, will people be able to appreciate his greatness.
Rabbi Meir spent most of his life in Radoshkowitz, where he taught and created most of his innovations in Torah study. His name will forever be linked to Radoshkowitz. However, late in his life he moved to Jerusalem, where he became friends with the Chief Rabbi, Hacohen Cook. He died there at the age of eighty-four. His picture and handwriting are enshrined in the Department of Portraits and Autographs of the Greats of Israel of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Ben Zion Notlevich
Rabbi of Brooklyn, NY

Issue #28, page 7 - the list of Jews - house owners of the city of Radoshkovichi, having the right to be elected to the City Administration for four years. for the year 1911

from the Vilna Provincial Bulletin [Vilenska Guberniya Vedemosti]
The Vedemosti were similar to the Federal Register in that the Imperial Russian government published in them items it wished to make public. Unlike the Federal Register, editing was private and the paper also contained a news and advertising section along with the public announcements. These lists were prepared for us by BLITZ, through whom copies of individual lists may be ordered. We plan to order the most interesting lists [that is, those likely to contain the greatest number of Jewish names]: voter lists & lists of men not appearing for military draft, and to translate them and put them on our site.
BLITZ did not include the lists in which the district is not indicated nor any lists with only non-Jewish surnames in this report. The lists of jurors do not contain many Jewish surnames. Jews are listed only as reserve jurors (three-four persons in each list)..

notes from the sig.....
...I drew a complete blank with regard to both my mother's and father's
Ellis Island history using the names I knew them by. I knew both had become
citizens in the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn) courthouse. So I
had the records there checked using the names I knew.
In a very short amount of time we were able to locate their immigration
records, which were part of the citizenship application file and discovered
that neither one entered the country under the names we had used. In my
father's case, the name was the same but the spelling was nothing close to
what we had imagined. E.g., "Cz" for "Sh" for example. In my mother's
case, because she came to the U.S. as a teenager, she traveled under a
maternal uncle's name and used his last name instead of hers.
Using the names we got from the court file, it was a snap to go back to
Ellis Island's website and get the manifests, the pictures of the ships,
etc.
It is apparent that to apply for citizenship, the applicant had to
prove the nature and circumstances of the entry into the U.S. and the
lawyers or others who helped the applicant knew the questions to ask, got
the original papers which the applicant would have retained, etc.
To my knowledge, the records are on microfilm and going back 70 years
was no problem at all.
At this point, I am affiliated with the Belarus SIG on account of my
father's history. In the near future I will look to join a comparable group
for the Ukraine, if available, since my mother came from there.
Finally, a number of years ago I found a Hebrew text at the New York
Main Public Library, entitled (in translation) "My Town Motele"by Chaim
Chemerinsky. A cousin and I hired someone conversant with Hebrew as spoken
and written at the beginning of the 20th century. I distributed copies of
the translation to members of my father's family. One of the them gave the
book to YIVO. I found out when contacted by Itzchak Epstein of New York,
who introduced me to the Motol research group, now the Belarus SIG.

In a message dated 11/28/02 11:41:22 AM Pacific Standard Time, fox73@earthlink.net writes: << As you know, the FHL has not yet filmed the revision lists
in the Vilna archive. There have been some major changes in the personnel
at the FHL who are responsible for filming efforts in the Former Soviet
Union... Therefore, I do not
know when or if the revision lists in Vilna (including the ones that cover
territory not in Belarus) will be filmed. Stephen started a Belarus SIG
JewishGenerosity fund collection effort to purchase the Vileika revision
lists for the SIG. When we checked almost two years ago, it was estimated
that we would have to pay about $2,500 to get photocopies of the Vilieka
revision lists delivered to the US. So far only $691 has been donated to the
project and efforts to finalize the purchase of the records were broken off
because the needed funds could not be raise by Stephen. Here is a list of

Wirth, Morris I have no personal connections to Vilieka, but made a small donation just to
get the project started. Susan Goldsmith has generously contributed twice to
the project. Perhaps you might like to try and get more people interested in donating to
the project so we can get the records. People can donate by going to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html 3. The Polish Business Directory: Please coordinate your efforts with Nancy
Holden, the SIG Research Coordinator, in order to avoid duplication of
effort and to insure that the data in collected in a proper Excel template
so the data can be incorporated in the All Belarus Database. Nancy is also
trying to maintain a list of volunteer translators. I have copied her on
this message so you can both communicate. Both of you are located in
California if believe. I have also copied Edward Rosenbaum, since he is the
Webmaster and database manager for the SIG.
Thanks for all the fine work you are doing.

My great-grandfather was Meyer Bayuk, son of Moses Bayuk.
To the Bayuk relative that wrote about our connection to the Gaon de Vilna, here is how we are related. Yehuda Moshe (Moses) Bayuk was the great-great-great grandson of the Rabbi Eliyahu Goan Vilna (1720-1797). 1)R. Eliyahu married and had children. His second child, a daughter, was Khiena of Pinsk (1748-1806)
2) Khiena married Zalmen Zelig Chinitz (1735-1803) and had
Yedidah Penchuk (1780-1850)
3) Yedidah married and had Yosef Punchuk (1797-1860)
4) Yosef Penchuk married and had Khana Penchuk (1815-?)
5) Khana Penchuk married Yaakov Bayuk who were Moses' parents.
This is according to a book called "The Goan of Wilna" by Mendel Silber, Rabbi of Temple Emanuel in Duluth, MN
My question is what to the Russian Rolls refer to on Meyer & Moses listings mean?. Does it correspond to document numbers for certificates in Russia? Please e-mail me back with the answer.

Thank you for your prompt reply to my query on the Bayuk family. I know
Jacob Moses Bayuk. He was my Great-Great Grandfather and his first child,
Jacob, was my Great-Grandfather. Most of Moses Bayuk's children moved to
Philadelphia. I know this branch of the family either thru personal
experience or my aunt's ( Bluma Bayuk Rappaport ) book. It contained the
family tree of J. M.'s children and thier families. I would like to learn
about the Bayuk family before 1881. This family came from Vilna and were
descendents of the Gaon de Vilna. Any suggestions as to where to look would
be most appreciated. Again, thank you for your quick response to my original
email.

MEYER BAYUK came to the United States with his family at age three. Along with his two brothers Samuel and Max, he founded Bayuk Brothers in 1905. It was incorporated as Bayuk Brothers in 1912, reincorporated as Bayuk Cigars in 1920, and was first located at 9th Street and Columbia Avenue. Meyer served as treasurer and chairman of the board until his retirement in 1925, when the company was the largest independent cigar maker in the country. He moved to Florida in 1936 and died there in 1971 at the age of 96.

http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/minsk_1912_marriages.htm
The current issue of "AVOTAYNU" (Summer 2002, Vol. XVIII, Number 2) contains
an article titled "Documentation of Byelorussian Jewish History at The
Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People" by Hadassah
Assouline, Director of the CAHJP. Among the holdings in the CAHJP are "lists
of Jewish townsmen in Grodno (17th-18th centuries), Mir, Pinsk, Shklov,
etc.; lists of Jewish families that emigrated from Byelorussia to
agricultural settlements in the Kherson region of Ukraine; list of Jews
suspected of involvement in revolutionary activities, lists of rabbis and
electgors of rabbis, ; lists of pogrom victims; and others." They also have
the pinkas (register) of the the Talmud Torah society in Rakov. This
document (1810-1912) contains lists of its electors, lists of the society's
officers and minutes of its meetings. In addition the CAHJP has documents
from the general department of education in the region of Mogilev (19th
century) and documents from various Jewish factories (19th-20th centuries).
If you already subscribe to "AVOTAYNU", be sure to read this article. If
you don't subscribe, perhaps you can find a copy in your local JGS library
or consider subscribing to "AVOTAYNU". As we have previously announced, the SIG was able to obtain the 1912 Minsk
marriage and divorce registers and the Minsk marriage register for 1919-1933
from the CAHJP. The 1912 registers have been translated and can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/minsk_1912_marriages.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/minsk_1912_divorce.htm The 1919-1933 register is still on the list of records that need to be
translated. You will see from looking at the 1912 registers that the people
were not only from Minsk, but were from all over Belarus and I expect that
the later register will be the same. If some of you in Israel visit the CAHJP in Jerusalem, please take a look at
the Belarus records and try determine if any of the name lists would be
worth translating and putting on the SIG website and eventually added to the All Belarus Database.

MASKILEISON, NAPHTALI: JewishEncyclopedia.com - MASKILEISON, NAPHTALI: By : Herman Rosenthal J. G. Lipman Russian Hebrew author and book-dealer; born at Radashkovichi, near Minsk, Feb. 20, 1829; died at Minsk Nov. 19, 1897. His father, R. Abraham Maskileison, a Hebrew scholar of note and the author of "Maskil le-Etan," instructed him in Talmud. Study of the poetical works of Moses Luzzatto and N. Wessely awakened Maskileison's interest in Neo-Hebrew literature, then regarded with disfavor by the Orthodox circles in which he grew up. His first poetical production was the drama "Esther," which was praised by the poet A. B. Lebensohn. Later he published, in various Hebrew periodicals, some poems which are marked by beauty of form and depth of thought. His many prose articles, published in the Hebrew periodicals during a period of forty years, are likewise distinguished for their excellence, as is his "Miktabim le-Lammed," a collection of eighty-eight letters of varied content (Wilna, 1870). One of Maskileison's most valuable undertakings was his revised edition of Jehiel Heilprin's "Seder ha-Dorot" (Warsaw, 1878-82). He systematizedthe work and corrected the errors and omissions that had rendered the chronology almost useless, and appended a biography of Heilprin. He left many works in manuscript. Maskileison represents the best type of the Maskilim. Bibliography: Voskhod, 1897, No. 49, p. 1367;

I would like to congratulate you for the New Year and wish you and your family happiness health peace
and prosperity in the New Year and many years to come.
I have just returned from a week extended heritage tour to Belarus and Dolhinov.
I headed a delegation of 35 to inaugurate the fence we have built around the Jewish cemetery in Dolhinov.
The tour was very successful. As the local people say the fence is the most beautiful thing in Dolhinov.
The tour took place from the 27th of August till the 4th of September. It was a very emotional, full of excitement
and deep feelings tour. We visited many townships including Minsk, Molodechno, Vileika, Krasnoye, Radashkovichy, Kurenets, Ilia, Krivichi, Parafyanovo, Dokshitsi, Glubokoye, Pleshchenitsi, Lahuisk, Mir, Neswizh and others.
We visited the terrible death camp of "Maly Trostinetz" near Minsk where 206 thousand Jews were massacred.
We never knew of its existence at all. The atrocities committed there by the Germans are beyond any human comprehension. All of the participants were deeply disturbed by what they saw and heard and what was left from all the Jewish communities in all the places in Belarus.
In Kurenets at the Memorial we made a Haskara for the whole Jewish community exterminated by the Nazis.
In Dolhinov we had very emotional meetings at the cemetery. Shlomo Shamgar made a Haskara at the two mass graves of the murdered Jews of Dolhinov, one inside the cemetery and the other 200-300m outside in the open field.
We sang Hatiqva and stood for some minutes in silence to commemorate the memory of so many men women and children murdered in cold blood by the Nazi Germans and their collaborators.
With me were my brother Viktor my daughter Michal and my brother Arie's son Ran.
Imagine our emotions and excitement when we found the headstone of the grave of my grandfather Eliazer Rosin .
I had been to the cemetery twice previously but I could not find it, and only this time after cleaning up
the site from the thick bushes and debris were we lucky to find it. It is amazing how well it is preserved for so many years. It was an overwhelming emotional experience.The same happened to other people who found graves of their ancestors. Deep emotions overpowered us. The young participants were discovering their roots anew.
I have a lot of taken photos and of course other material to record.
In Dolhinov we still have to put up two big Headstones on the two mass graves and cover properly the big area of the grave sites. We haven't been able to engage the contractor to do so this time because of lack of the required sum of money. We need another 4000 US dollars, to what we have at our disposal, in order to complete the execution of the Project.
Therefore, we appeal to Dolhinovites and their descendants and to their good will, for further contributions to enable us to fulfil the mission.
Contributions to this sacred task will be greatly valued and appreciated.
Please, put this message on your Dolhinov Web-site.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you for your cooperation and best wishes,
Leon Rubin

I'm very interested in researching my GGGRandfathers Background. His name was Mordechai LInder a Cantonist who served in the military and later settled in FINLAND one of less than a hundred or so families allowed into Finland. How can I find his military or ancestor records from Russia?
I know he was born from his tombstone in 5598 which I believe is 1837. It states his place of Birth as 21 tevet 5668? He had 14 children. His fathers name was Chaim Ya'akov. Any information or ways on reseaching would be appreciated. Jennifer

JewishEncyclopedia.com - POTOCKI (POTOTZKI), COUNT VALENTINE (ABRAHAM B. ABRAHAM):
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=482&letter=P&search=ILYE
By : Herman Rosenthal Peter Wiernik Polish nobleman and convert to Judaism; burned at the stake at Wilna May 24, 1749. There are several versions of the remarkable story of this martyr, whose memory is still revered among the Jews of Russia as that of the Ger ZedeK (righteous proselyte). A Russian translation, from the Polish of Kraszewski's "Wilna od Poczátkow Jego do Roku 1750," in which he claims to have followed a Hebrew original, relates that young Potocki and his friend Zaremba, who went from Poland to study in Paris, became interested in an old Jew whom they found poring over a large volume when they entered his wine-shop. His teachings and explanations of the Old Testament, to which they, as Roman Catholics, were total strangers, so impressed them that they prevailed upon him to instruct them in Hebrew. In six months they acquired proficiency in the Biblical language and a strong inclination toward Judaism. They resolved to go to Amsterdam, which was one of the few places in Europe at that time where a Christian could openly embrace Judaism. But Potocki first went to Rome, whence, after convincing himself that he could no longer remain a Catholic, he went to Amsterdam and took upon himself the covenant of Abraham, assuming the name of Abraham ben Abraham.
After residing a short time in Germany, which country he disliked, he returned to Poland, and for a time lived among the Jews of the town of Ilye (government of Wilna near Radoshkovitz), some of whom seemed to be aware of his identity. While in the synagogue of Ilye one day he was irritated into commenting severely upon the conduct of a boy who was disturbing those occupied in prayer and study. The boy's father was so enraged that he informed the authorities that the long-sought "Ger Zedek" was in Ilye. Potocki was arrested; the entreaties of his mother and friends failed to induce him to return to Christianity; and after a long imprisonment he was burned alive in Wilna, on the second day of Shavu'ot. It was unsafe for a Jew to witness the burning; nevertheless one Jew, Leiser Zhiskes, who had no beard, went among the crowd and succeeded by bribery in securing some of the ashes of the martyr, which were later buried in the Jewish cemetery. A letter of pardon from the king arrived too late to save the victim. Potocki's comrade Zaremba returned to Poland several years before him, married the daughter of a great nobleman, and had a son. He remained true to the promise to embrace Judaism and took his wife and child to Amsterdam, where, after he and his son had been circumcised, his wife also became a Jewess; then they went to Palestine.
There is reason to believe that the actual teacher of Potocki, perhaps the one who induced the two young noblemen to embrace Judaism, was their own countryman Menahem Man ben Aryeh Löb of Visun, who was tortured and executed in Wilna at the age of seventy (July 3, 1749). Tradition has brought this Jewish martyr into close connection with the "Ger Zedek," but fear of the censor has prevented writers in Russia from saying anything explicit on the subject.

JewishEncyclopedia.com - MANASSEH BEN JOSEPH OF ILYE (Vileika) http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=128&letter=M&search=wilna
Russian rabbinical writer and philosopher; born at Smorgony (Smorgon), government of Wilna, 1767; died at Ilye, in the same government, 1831. At seven years of age he was acquainted with some original sources in rabbinical literature, but his father would not permit him to study Hebrew grammar and the Bible lest these might interfere with his Talmudic studies. According to the custom of that time Manasseh was married early; at the age of thirteen he became the husband of the daughter of a wealthy citizen of Smorgony; but he soon divorced her and married the daughter of a merchant in the village of Ilye, where he spent most of his life. His erudition early drew a circle of friends and disciples around him, and in discussing with them the rabbinical laws and regulations he did not hesitate to criticize such authorities as the Shulchan 'Aruk and Rashi. He even dared to interpret some parts of the Mishnah in contradiction to the explanation given by the Gemara; for such daring he probably would have been put under the ban had not an influential rabbi, Joseph Mazel of Wyazyn, come to his rescue. The latter took great interest in Manasseh and threw open to him his extensive and valuable library of rabbinical and philosophical literature.
Relation to Elijah of Wilna. Manasseh became acquainted also with Elijah Gaon of Wilna, whom he visited once a year; but when Elijah discovered that Manasseh visited Zalman of Liozna, the leader of the northern Chasidim, he credited those of his disciples who asserted that Manasseh showed Chasidic leanings, and held aloof from him, though Manasseh explained to the gaon that only a love of knowledge induced him to visit Zalman, and that his views differed widely from those of the Chasidim. Manassch really sympathized somewhat with the latter, expecting that their movement might develop into something better than the existing rabbinical orthodoxy. In his writings Manasseh holds Elijah of Wilna in high esteem, declaring in "Binat Mi?ra" (Grodno, 1818) that from him he had learned to interpret the Talmud by the simple philological method of the "peshak," while the majority of Talmudic teachers used the less scientific methods of the "derash. "He even says that but for Elijah of Wilna the Torah would have been forgotten in Israel ("Alfe Menashsheh," § 102; comp. § 177).
The suspicions of the Orthodox members of Manasseh's community increased when he began to study philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy. He had formed the resolution to go to Berlin for the purpose of becoming acquainted with the circle of Moses Mendelssohn; but at Königsberg he was stopped by some of his Orthodox coreligionists, who induced the Prussian authorities to refuse him a passport. Thus he was forced to return home, where, with the sole aid of some old manuals, he studied German, Polish, natural philosophy, and mechanics. Shows Advanced Tendencies. Manasseh had large ideas of educating the Russo-Jewish youth, but the rabbis of his time were not prepared to accept them. In his "Pesher Davar" (Wilna, 1807) he complains "that the Jews are divorced from real life and its practical needs and demands; that the leaders of the Jews are short-sighted men who, instead of enlightening their followers, darken their intellect with casuistic restrictions, in which each rabbi endeavors to outdo his predecessors and contemporaries. The wealthy class thinks only of its profits, and is not scrupulous with regard to the means of getting money. Even those who are honest and endeavor to help their poorer brethren do it in such an unintelligent way that they do harm rather than good. Instead of educating the children of the poor to become artisans, they add to the number of idlers, and are thus responsible for the dangerous consequences of such an education." Plungiansky (see bibliography) is of the opinion that these words were directed against Elijah; and from the preface to "Pesher Dabar" it is evident that Manasseh desired to make peace between the leader of the Chasidim and the gaon. The consequences to the author of this daring appeal to the rabbis were serious; many rabbis destroyed his book, and some of his disciples and nearest friends left him.
Manasseh's father-in-law having lost his fortune, Manasseh left his native town and went to Brody, where he made the acquaintance of R. Jacob Landau, who expressed his disapproval of Manasseh's radical criticism of Rashi. He went next to Brest-Litovsk, where R. Aryeh Löb Katzenellenbogen engaged him as teacher to his sons, on the express condition that he adopt the interpretation of Rashi. Manasseh, however, could not abandon his critical methods, and, being dismissed, returned to Ilye. During his stay in Volhynia, on his way to Brody, Manasseh had begun to print his "Alfe Menashsheh," but when the printer became acquainted with the radical spirit of the work he threw both proofs and manuscript into the fire. Manasseh at once proceeded to rewrite his book, and owing to his remarkable memory was able to complete it; he published it in Wilna in 1827 (republished in Warsaw in 1860 In this work Manasseh demonstrates that in accordance with the rabbinical teachings the Rabbis have the power to amend certain Jewish legal decisions when there is a necessity for it. Manasseh was compelled to suppress the paragraph containing this (§ 20) because Samuel Katzenellenbogen threatened that if it were not withdrawn he would order the work publicly burned in the synagogue-yard. When the Russian government ordered the establishment of rabbinical schools, Manasseh wrote a work on higher mathematics, mechanics, and strategics and asked his friends to induce some scholar to translate this work into Russian in order to show the government what a Jew could produce on those lines. His friend Joseph of Wyazyn feared, however, the unfavorable comment of the officials, who might say that the Jews, instead of working on farms, were preparing war plans. It was resolved therefore to burn the manuscript. Judah Löb of Kovno, Samuel Eliasberg, and Wolf Adelsohn may be mentioned among Manasseh's friends.
Manasseh was undoubtedly a great scholar, and his mind was remarkable for subtlety and power of analysis; he was also a friend of the people, and translated his "Samma-de-?ayye" into Judæo-German for the purpose of reaching them. In another work, "She?el ha-kodesh" (Shklov, 1823), he defends himself against the accusation of being an ambitious innovator. He says that his opponents can not even understand that one can risk his peace by antagonizing influential rabbis out of mere love for one's people. He asserts that he never sought wealth, fame, or pleasure, and that he lived on bread and water; but that the thirst for self-perfection would not allow him to rest until he had fulfilled his mission. In the same book he shows that it iserroneous to suppose that the earthly life is only a vale of tears and misery and the antechamber to a future life. Manasseh was one of the first victims of the cholera epidemic of 1831. He did not live to realize any of his aspirations, but he prepared the ground for the Maskilim, who disseminated his ideas. Besides the above-named works Manasseh left one on mathematics and some other writings in manuscript.

from http://eejhp.tripod.ca/guestbook.htm
My mother, Esther Rubin (Kleinman) was born in the town of Radoshkovichi in 1923. To our knowledge she was the only member of her family to escape the Nazi extermination of Radoshkovichi. She managed this by leaving town as a teenager to join up with the partisan groups that populated the forests of the area. Both her father and younger brother are known to have been killed. (Recent research points out that the Rubin family was one of the larger clans in this town). Other Rubin survivors?
My mom passed away in July 1977, but did leave a manuscript that descibed her personal experiences. Her father, Yosef Rubin was a photographer in Radoskovichi and my mom did manage to save some of his photographs.
I am just begining to explore this history and am also contemplating a visit to Belarus. I am interested in making contact with people who might be able to help me to learn more.
Thanks, Mark Kleinman kleinmanml@aol.com

I came across the same last name from "Sluck, Poland". Anyone know of
this place as being in Poland? I don't believe the Minsk province of
today's Belarus (where Slutsk was located) was ever a part of Poland.
So is this a different family from Poland? >>
Searching the Ellis Island Database in One Step (Jewish Passengers) I put;
Town Name sounds like "Slutsk" for last names that start with the letter "S"
I found more then fifty people who came from Sluck/ Slutzk, Poland all in the
years 1920 and 1921. In other years some with the same last names came from
Slutsk, Russia (but not even one came from Sluck/ Slutzk, Russia in 1920).
Two girls with the same last name came from Sluck/ Slutzk in 1921. One from
Poland and the other from Russia. I checked the original manifests the one
who stated "Poland"; She came in March of 1921 to her brother Morris in
Cleveland, Ohio.
The other one who stated "Russia" came to the same brother ; Morris with the
same address in Cleveland, Ohio on September first of 1921.
The western part of Belorussia was under Polish rule from 1920 to 1939 and
during the first year kept changing hands between the Soviets and Poland who
were fighting for control of the area. Most likely in 1920 Sluck/ Slutzk was
under Polish rule for a short time.

For a short period of about 1 year, during The Civil War, Slutsk area was
under Poland control. At this period all official institutions had to
conduct their documents in Polish . I have one of such documents from Slutsk
Gymnasium (Classic High School) where my GF was a teacher.The document was
written in both Russian and Polish and Polish language was an obligatory
subject to be studied by students. leonid Zeliger

Dear Susan, I've been meaning to write to the whole group about the very questions you
asked. Since I'm responding to you, I thought I would send this response to
all of you. Virtually nothing has been done except through the research of individual
members, some of whom have developed personal web sites.
I was hoping we could first obtain the Revision List of 1850 and then
translate it. When first planned, we figured that the photos would cost
about $2500. We have nearly two hundred people interested in the towns of the district.
If every member had contributed $15, we could have easily met that goal.
Less than ten have actually donated any money to the Jewishgen fund that
was set up for that purpose. Less than $700 was collected. Since the fund
was set up, there has been so little interest that at least one member was
so disillusioned that he had his funds transferred to a different project.
You asked about data bases. I assume you actually meant web sites. There
are a few for the towns of Vilieka Uyezd, but they are not centralized or
tied to the Belarus SIG main web page. With cooperation, a lot of work can
be done, but without it only individual work is accomplished.
When I first started making inquiries concerning the towns of this district
nearly two years ago, there was very limited information and no organized
group. Today, we have a group and a central site courtesy of the Belarus
SIG, but very little has been contributed. I'd love to see some of the members web sites connected to the SIG page on
our district. Each of us, I'm sure, have talents, time and in some cases money that could
be contributed, but unless you communicate with me with your suggestions,
criticism and ideas, very little will get done.
Please let me hear from you. Best regards, Steve

Subj: Kleinstub on Ellis Island and Ancestry
Date: 5/28/02 11:39:06 AM Pacific Daylight Time
From: SIRRAH 205
To: EilatGordn The info you have sent me is invaluable. I would have never foound it on my own due to inexperience. Would you be kind enough to direct me to the proper method of contacting a shetel to find out about ancestors. I have tried searching through Ellis Island records, but because of spelling of given names I was unable to solve the riddle as you have done.
I don't know if it is coincidental or not, but among the Kleinstubs you listed, two of them Reichel and Etel were my aunts. Sore was my mother. You also had Etel going to her father J. Klein nee Kleinstub in Birmingham, Al. J. Klein was my grandfather. Also you included an obituary for Gertrude Makagon who was a Goodman nee Kleinstub. She was my first cousin. Was this incidental to the info you sent or did you have any kind of knowledge about the relationship?
Finally, can you explain what public records you examined to find so many Kleinstubs living in differfent parts of the country.
I hope I'm not intruding by asking you for so much info. Will eagerly look forward to hearing from you. Warmest Regards,
Mel J. Harris

Radoshkovichi, Belarus Yizkor Book
A town in Belarus. The Jewish community was established in the 16th century. The Jews numbered 455 in 1765; 1,701 in 1847; 1,519 in 1897; and 1,215 in 1921. In the 1920s and 1930s the Jewish economy suffered and there was considerable poverty as a result of the poor returns, the heavy taxes, and the competition of non - Jews who were supported by the Polish government. Pioneers from Radoshkovichi were among the first members of the Third Aliyah. After World War I, Zionist youth movements were very active and a Ha -Chalutz training farm was established. In 1921 - 22 Radoshkovichi (then on the Polish - Russian border) was a transit station for the Jewish refugees returning from Soviet Russia to their homes in Poland. Communal institutions included a Tarbut school, and a Hebrew library. On the outbreak of World War II there were about 1,200 Jews in Radoshkovichi. On Sept. 18, 1939, the Red Army entered the town and a Soviet administration was established there. The Germans occupied the town on June 25, 1941. An Aktion took place on March 11, 1942, when 850 Jews were killed. After this Aktion, a ghetto was established for the remaining 350 Jews. The Jewish community was liquidated on March 7, 1943, when the remaining 300 Jews were killed in the ghetto. During the liquidation, about 50 Jews succeeded in escaping to the nearby forests, where they joined the partisan unit, "the Revenge." After the war the Jewish community of Radoshkovichi was not reconstituted.

I was, and am, profoundly grateful. It would be enormously helpful to learn what led you to point out, as you did, that the Haradok is the one between Volozhin and Radoshkovichi? 1.

it now appears that Usher Uberstein came from Gorodok 5404 2742 (12.7 NNE of Minsk) and his brother, Lazer, came from Gorodok 5409 2655, between Volozhin and Radoshkovichi. I believe you are correct, as Lazer's children had strong Volozhin connections. I wonder how you knew? And again, I thank you.
Thank you,
Susan Rogers

P.S. I added this to what you sent, which I put in our guestbook, since that is where you wanted to put it yourself: [Ed. note: That's a major revelation: the Harodok between Volozhin and Radoshkovichi is NOT the same shtetl as Ostroshitskiy Gorodok 12.7 miles NE of Minsk. This can only mean a revisionist look at our family history will soon be forthcoming. Stay tuned.]
I was only guessing because of the Volozhin relatives ( Farberman) and also I was in contact at the time with some other families from that one, who had relatives in both Volozhin and Radoshkovich. Steve Rosen has information about the shtetl. There is a movie about that shtetl (I know it is the one near Volozhin because it was part of Poland between 1921 to 1939 when the movie was made.;
Horodok
11 min / BW / Adult / VHS
While visiting relatives in Horodok, a Polish shtetl between Minsk and Vilna , the American amateur filmmaker, Joseph Shapiro, recorded his impressions on film. As he films people on foot, women at work, schools, markets, wooden houses, farm animals and horsedrawn wagons, a portrait emerges of a poor but pious way of life. This is a silent film.

Polish Aliyah Passports
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/jhi/jri-jhi-aliyah-passport.htm
In the 1930s as the shadow of history was lengthening over the Jews of Europe, several thousand Polish Jews managed to emigrate to what was then British Mandate Palestine. The 'Passports' collection in the Archives of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland (Warsaw) consists of 3,754 Polish passports issued primarily during the 1930s to Polish citizens going to what was then British Mandate Palestine. The vast majority were one-time-only passports for Jews emigrating to Palestine ("making aliyah"). These were issued in Poland or by Polish consulates abroad. A very small number are tourist or non-emigrant passports (e.g. for an author on a speaking tour or a nun on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land). LAST NAME BORN IN

The East European Jewish Heritage Project has negotiated with the
Belarusian Committee for the Preservation of the Nation's
Heritage an agreement for the protection of Belarus' Jewish
Cemeteries. In order for a cemetery to be protected the
following steps must be taken:
a. A listing (index) and charting to headstones must be
made.
b. A barrier (fence, wall, hedges) must be placed
around the cemetery boundaries to demarcate its extent.
(c. Although not required it is politic to discuss
plans with the local authority)
It must be said that at the present time, due to a less than
vigorous economy, few, if any cemeteries are in danger of
reclamation for redevelopment. It is my sense that those liable
to this use were taken in the pre-1991 period. The main obstacle
to preserving cemeteries is funding. There are two main threats to the survival of Belarus' Jewish
cemeteries: nature and the indifference of the International
Jewish community.
a. Nature: Small, unattended cemeteries rapidly become
overgrown, the headstones, which were never properly set,
topple and erosion erases inscriptions. In rural areas
these cemeteries often disappear under shrub or within
second growth forest.
b. Indifference of the International Jewish Community: With
notable exceptions, it has been impossible to raise
funds for the minimal activities needed to protect
cemeteries. In addition to the measures listed above
(3.a-c) stones should be reset and arrangements made for
continuing maintenance of the site. No international
Jewish organisation has ever been prepared to support
these efforts (In fact they seem increasingly
uninclined to support living Jews. The largest
International Jewish 'Aid' Organisation has announced a
40% reduction in aid this year). This is especially
galling when one sees extensive restorations of not only
cemeteries but of churches by Russian Orthodox and Roman
Catholic organisations based abroad. There has even
been (despicably) a restoration of a German war graves
cemetery near Volozhyn funded by German money.
In summary it seems to me that if there is genuine concern to preserve
Jewish cemeteries in Belarus two things need to be done:
1. Funds should be provided for the work by concerned Jewish
individuals and communities abroad. 2. Pressure should be placed on Germans to fund these projects
in the countries they pillaged instead of the construction in
Germany of self-congratulatory monuments to expiation which can
be exhibited to visitors to convince them that there is a new
Germany. Many Germans like to think that the Holocaust is in the
past, the responsibility of a previous generation. They
must be constantly reminded that for the people who
still suffer its consequences and in the memorials of
destroyed cemeteries and buildings it continues and
Germans are responsible. At the same time as Jews we have a responsibility to our own heritage.
The present government in Belarus is very supportive of the Jewish
community. We can take advantage of that circumstance to move ahead
and preserve the physical remains of our heritage. The East European
Jewish Heritage Project is glad to assist. Please write to me if you
would like help in preserving a cemetery.

Renovation of the Jewish Cemetery in Vishnive and Additional Projects
First Progress Report

Dear Friends, In March, 2002 Ms. Regina Kopilevich signed a contract with the city of Vishnive concerning the clearing and removal of the wild growth of trees, thorny bushes and grass from the Jewish Cemetery. The city is committed to a careful and responsible job in which no damage will occur to the tombstones. Regina, representing the Vishnive descendants, is committed to paying a total of one-thousand dollars, in three stages. The first payment was made with a two hundred dollar deposit. Four hundred dollars will be paid after the first cutting and removal in April. The rest of the money will be paid in the summer, following the second cutting and clearing up. We are also checking into the possibility of
I. The erection of a Memorial marker at the site of the mass grave in the cemetery where the first group of thirty-eight Jewish victims was gunned down in 1941.
II. An addition to the Krave Street Memorial where the remaining two-thousand
members of the Jewish community were slaughtered and burned in 1942. The
memorial will state clearly in English, Hebrew and Russian that all of the victims
were Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators.
III. The building of a fence to surround the Jewish cemetery.
The attached pictures depict the current condition of the cemetery, the Vishnive team who will be in charge of the project with Regina and the Soviet Memorial on Krave Street. A current list of contributors is attached. If you know other Vishnive descendants, please let them know what we hope to accomplish.
For your information, we have set up Internet Memorial Sites for Vishnive and our family. The site addresses are:

More updates will follow soon. Have a happy Passover! The address for contributions in the US is:

Dear SIG members,
we had some discussion about CANTONIST, probably you will find it
interesting as well: "... the entire Jewish community was responsible for the fulfillment of
draft quotas and would suffer a penalty if the quotas were not met, it fell
to the leaders, who were often rabbis, to decide who could stay and who had
to go to the army. In the most notorious cases, kidnappers - the Yiddish
word is khapers - were hired to do the unpleasant work, sometimes seizing
boys as young as eight or nine.
The most heartrending cases were those of the "CANTONIST" - Jewish children
drafted legally between the ages of 12 and 18 and sent to barracks
(cantonments) far from their families and then brutalized and neglected. If
they survived - many of 40,000 cantonists did not - they could look forward
to a full 25 years of service in the regular army, since the years served
before age eighteen did not count against their obligation.
The ordeal of the cantonists and some other Jewish hardships ended in 1856
with the abolition of the special system of Jewish conscription by
Nicholas's successor, Emperor Alexander II."
HERITAGE: Civilization and the Jews by ABBA EBAN
Summit books, NY, 1984 Mostly all cantonists became Christians, they were orderly baptized.
Many returned to the big cities such as St.Petersburg to
continue their service in Czar's guard regiment. Some of them settled later
in Finland (which was a part of Russia as well) and many among them
"converted back" to Judaism. Irene Kudish kudish@sympatico.ca

I am coresponding with a woman that is trying to locate her mother's lost family. Here is her story. In October 1942, on the ground, where the ghetto was, hundreds of Brestian walked (people who lived in Brest, survived war, they weren't Jewish of course). They were looking for blankets, clothes etc.) Among other people was Jadwiga Kuzio, who was looking for a quilt. In the tenement
house, which stand on the corner of streets Listowskiego and
Dabrowskiego she found a quilt with monograms JG. This house belongs to Goldberg family. Under the quilt lied my mother, whole in blood. She had got an injury on her neck. My mother was about two years old. Jadwiga
Kuzio dressed the injury and carried away the quilt with my mom in the capacity of a package to a home. On the door was nameplate with caption-Goldberg on it. In a room, next to the bed hanged a marriage photo.
This information my mother heard on the day of her 18 birthday from Jadwiga Kuzio. This is what remembered Jadwiga Kuzio, she adopted her and brought her up.
She died 10 years ago. My mother is still alive.
We want to reconstruct my moms history. From 2000 year my mom belong to Association of Holocaust Children.
Maybe you remember who lived in tenement house on the corner of Street Lisowskiego and Dabrowskiego? Every information is very valuable for us.
It can help us make a world, where lived my mom.
I was in Brest few days ago. Unfortunately, the synagogue and houses didn't exist now. I met Mr. Szlomo Weinstein, who survived and still lives in Brest. He lived behind the rabbi house, behind the synagogue.
He remembers that; on around the corner was billiards and shop with alcohol. Unfortunately, he didn't remember who lived behind the shop.
From the archive in Brest we got documents concerning Lejba and Mira Goldberg. I sent you copies of these documents. They lived on Dluga Street. After the ghetto was made, this Street wasn't on ghetto side, so probably left to their family on Dabrowskiego Street and there my mother
was found. Jadwiga Kuzio was there with her German friend, Helena Lik,who was trade in ghetto and probably knows family and the child. She urged Mrs. Kuzio to take the child and take care about it. We try to find this person. Unfortunately, we can't get information about Mira
Goldberg cause there isn't her maiden name in documents. Maybe we'll in Brest in May, then we will visit Czerniany too.
Maybe you know somebody who lived in Brest? We are trying to get as much information as we can. We never should shut the door ahead the history.
Best wishes

For about a month the guest book was not working properly due to a virus. in order to save the material i put it in archives. you can reach the archives by clicking on where it says "read Radoshkovichi guestbook archives" on the front page. I would really appreciate it if you would add information to the guest book by going to "add". In the last month I started a new page for families from the Vileyka/ Radoshkovichi area. I would like you to send me or scan and send an attachment of any old pictures of your family from the Vileyka area so I can post it on the page. thank you very much.
