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 (58.90f the total
population) in 1897; and 1,215 (49.4) 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
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. Courtesy of:
