to have anymore rabbis in Vilna as a gesture of respect for the greatness of the dead. So from then on the head dayyan became rabbi-like in status, earning the most special place in the synagogue during holy days. While the poor Jews, amongst them wandering Jews, beggars, etc. would come to the synagogue to take part in the prayers, my grandfather who could have gone to the best seat would join the poor so they would not feel themselves inferior.
Symbolic to his personality was the way he died: for many, many years, day after day he would sit in his narrow room with the door closed, studying when finally it affected him and he became sick with pneumonia. The doctor suggested he should take a vacation in Crimea, but he refused to listen to him. Many days he was very stubborn about not going, explaining that the long voyage to Crimea, which he would have to ride on a train for days, would take time from his Talmud studies. And what kind of life would he have if he were denied the studies of the Torah?
Finally he couldn’t take the begging of his wife and other family members and he went on his way. When the train arrived in Crimea, they found my grandfather lifeless. We never knew whether he died when arrived there or during the travels.
I only met my maternal grandfather in the last years of his life when I stayed with him for a few weeks in Vilna on the way to Germany. In any case it is very clear to me that I inherited my intellectual base from him.
From my paternal grandfather’s side, where I grew up and where I was educated in the first years of my life, I received other gifts that were no less important. My paternal grandfather was not an intellectual type but a very practical man. He had many children, most of them girls. The days when I was there they were not yet married so they took a large part in my education. I was the only grandson who lived at the house and this fact stood in direct correlation to the amount of spoiledness that I received. All the memories that I have from those days have not even a hint of unpleasantness and I believe that the tranquility and harmony of the first years of my life gave me the self-confidence that I was blessed with. That, more than any part of my personality, has aided me in my political activities later on.
Already in my early childhood there were signs of my mature personality. I clearly remember many tricks that I pulled that might have been an _expression of my need to lead, and my need to organize and take charge of things. Those early deeds that I used my friends to help me carry out, many times today seem to me to not have been in the best taste. But I remember that then I used to make them a little less sharp since I would always take all responsibility on myself without a moment of hesitation, in all the things my friends and I would do. To be truthful, I must admit that in most cases it didn’t take a lot of bravery or self-sacrifice, as the grandson of a person who was the only doctor in town and for many years was the head of the Jewish community there. Already I received special treatment.
I remember one Saturday when I created a huge mess in the synagogue when I entered the synagogue riding my big St. Bernard dog. It was huge and very scary although truly he had a very good nature. But the people praying must have thought it to be a horrible, wild dog who was coming to tear them apart. In the women’s quarters above, a few women fainted and some of the men ran outside screaming. But all this pandemonium didn’t make my dog change his stoic essence. He kept walking slowly and self-assuredly through the synagogue until we reached my grandfather’s seat in the first row. However, even that deed, which was absolutely blasphemous and so shocking that people talked about it for many years, I survived without much punishment.
In town my reputation was of a boy who appeared older than his age. For some health reasons I missed many days of cheder studies, but this did not affect my education since I was very quick and clever. It was enough for me to have private lessons of an hour or two to catch up to my friends who studied eight to ten hours a day. So the basic Jewish education I received mostly from my grandfather and a few tutors, amongst them the rabbi of the town [ed: Rabbi Perlman Margolis]. This rabbi later on went to Eretz Israel and when I had my bar mitzvah he sent me a letter from there where he described an episode from my days in the cheder of Vishnevo. This episode is descriptive not only of the way I thought but also it is a perfect example of Talmudic thinking. As my former teacher wrote in his letter, while he was discussing with the class the dream of Yakov where there was a passage saying that the angels of god (this was when I was 4) go up and down, I could not in my logic let myself accept such a sentence and I argued that the angels of God are in heaven so how can they go up before they go down? They must first go down and only then go up. The rabbi said that this question bothered him for years and he investigated this passage in all the different sources hoping to find reasonable answers since illogic has no place in the logical Torah.
Typical of religious people he could not accept the idea that it was just a phrase that people might say casually, without any real thought. Up and down. It was symbolic of a nation that for hundreds of years had been raised on the Talmudic analytical, logical basis in which no coincidences could occur.
Without getting into a deep psychological study, it’s very clear for me today when I look back that all the signs of my character were already taking roots in me in those days would become extremely important in helping me decide what paths to take. When I think of it, everything I achieved was done without cries or yells, but through careful persuasion instead. As a child, for example, I received special permission that let me stay with the older people until late night hours. For many months, later on, I would argue against what I saw as the punishment that I had to go early to my bed. I grew up with adults and I loved listening to their conversations at evening time, and I hated, as all children do, to go to sleep hours before the adults. All the scenes that I created at that point didn’t change that rule, and at the end I realized that there was a more useful way to work this out. As a child who was traditionally educated, my duty was to do a kryatchma when I was going to bed. So I used this rule, saying that I would not pray this prayer before I felt a true need to sleep. This stubbornness brought my wished results, and from then on they let me stay until I was ready to say the prayer. This experience made it clear to me that what I couldn’t do with fighting and stubbornness I achieved with a little bit of “politics”. This incident also made me richer with another bit of knowledge: religious thoughts cannot be forced upon you, and even more important, that prayer only has meaning if it is said with free will.
I was very lucky that my very first years, when the soul is still open to receive impressions from the environment, unlike other times in the life, passed in a house filled with pleasantness and warmth, surrounded by good natured and generous people. When I think today about my grandfather’s house I cannot decide who had the best nature among all the family members. All of them, my grandfather, grandmother, my aunts who took care of me with serenity and devotion, and never-ending pleasantness seemed to me to be true angels. I am very sure that the lack of suspicion and the need to help people, two character traits that were strong in me when I became an adult, were rooted in those first years. The feeling of confidence and safety that is so rooted in me might somehow be connected to the fact that my family then already thought that I would do great deeds in my life. They even asked the rabbi of the town to put special care in my education and development.
After I left my dear ones to join my parents in Germany I never saw them again. The First World War and the Revolution in Russia brought separation to many families. All my family members died before I could meet them again. Still, their memory is deeply rooted in my heart and my soul and I am very thankful for all that they gave me. Those dear people created the soil where I could take root and receive happiness and warmth and safety no matter what the future would bring. I am absolutely sure if my parents had taken me to Germany as soon as they had left I would lack this treasure that only life in a shtetl could bring. And once again I will emphasize that the spiritual climate of the Lithuanian shtetl Vishnevo was a very important element of establishing my character..... I will post the entire article in Vishnevo stories.

.....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) ..... From;

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.

Wisznevo/Vishnevo 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

Slownik Geograficzny Entry
Oszmiana powiat OSZMIANA PROVINCE (Powiat)- Lying within Wilno gubernia, it borders with Lida province on the west, on the northwest with Wilno, on the northeast with Swiecian province, to the east with Wilia province as well as Minsk gubernia, which borders it for equal distances on the southeast and east. The province contains 2,727 square miles (another count has it at 2,696 square miles) of which there are 1,742,800 acres in total; 69,550 acres (4%) in settlements, 490,460 arable acres (28.1%), 153,650 acres of (grazable) moors (8.8%), 194,400 acres pasturage and meadow (11.2%), 727,300 acres of forests (41.7%), and 107,400 acres barrens or water bodies (6.2%). In 1859, 385,290 acres belonged to the government (22.1%), 5,087 acres to towns (.3%), 6,720 acres to Orthodox and Catholic churches (.4%), with the remaining 1,345,500 acres in private hands (77.2%). In the northern part of the province, the topography is elevated and hilly, occasioned by the [ed.-- morainal] hill chain Awratyn. The highest locations are found near the villages Topiszki (1175 feet above sea level), Lojce (1049'), Donkni (766'), Widnopol estate (729' asl.) and the town of Jewie (610' asl.). The southern part in the Berezina river basin is lowlands, marshes and covered in forest. The central part consists of evenly rolling hills. Soils in the northern part are clayey or sandy; in the south marshy and humic. Bog-iron mines are found in the marshy lowlands, with especially rich deposits in the vicinity of Naliboki and Wisznew where deposits contain up to 50% iron. Oszmiana province, having the highest topography in the entire gubernia near Wilno, is very poorly endowed with lakes with none very large. Some of the most important are: Dub, Dubina, Kroman, and Reczuny, "The Swamp", as well as many small ones in the southern part of the province contributing to the notable Purwilski Marsh, out of which flows the Purvil river in turn contributing to the Olszanka River. The Wilia River flows from this same area to the northwestern border, and is the largest in Oszmiana province. The Nieman River flows along the southwestern border, fed by the Berezina, the Olszanka, the Wolozyn, and Isloch, Usze, and the Sutle tributaries. Towards the western border, the Zyzma flows into the Gawia which itself originates from the Klewa River (the Gawia emptying into the Nieman). In 1880, there were 162,285 inhabitants in the province [ed.-- unclear if the statistics include the town of Oszmiana which had special privileges], broken down as follows: 5,749 gentry, 287 clergy of all faiths, 69 honorary [ed.- major or titled?] landowners, 22,827 townspeople, 128,011 peasants, 5,084 military men, 220 foreigners, and 38 of uncertain status. By religion, there were 50,440 Orthodox, 891 Roskolnikovs (Old Believers), 99,020 Catholics, 162 Evangelicals (Protestants), 11,131 Jews, and 641 Moslems. In 1859 there were 128,666 inhabitants in the province (60,515 men and 63,547 women), counting 27,394 White Russian Orthodox, 20,650 Catholic Poles, 62,571 Catholic Lithuanians, and 2,527 Lithuanian Orthodox. In 1871, 142,688 inhabitants; in 1875, 152,261; and in 1878, 156,218. According to 1858 tax receipts, there were 15,425 horses [ed.--registered breeding horses?], 38,873 horned cattle, 18,911 common sheep, 8,974 specialty sheep, 7,980 plow or work horses, and 20,636 pigs, which comes to .19 animals per acre. The population is a mixture of Lithuanians and White Russians. The predominant language of the inhabitants is changing from Polish to White Russian, with additionally incorporated Lithuanian expressions. The most recent province administration consists of four (state) police districts: Zuprany, Smorgon, Dziewieniszki, and Wolozyn. There are 2 peacetime (civil) courts for peasant legal affairs at Oszmiana and Poloczany; 4 districts for performance of military obligations in Oszmiana, Smorgon, Subotniki, and Wolozyn; 3 District Inquiry Courts, with bureau offices in Oszmiana, (G)Holszany, and Smorgon, namely the 4th-tier District Circuit of Lida for 8 gminas, and three district review boards at Smorgon for the rest of the gminas. The province is further composed of 23 gminas: Polany, Soly, Holszany, Grauzyszki, Kucewicze (1st police district); Smorgon, Bienica, Krewo, Poloczany and Horodzki (2nd police district); Dziewieniszki, Subotniki, Lipniszki, Siedliszcze, Iwie, Lugomowicze, Traby, Juratiszki (3rd police district); and Wolozyn, Wiszniew, Naliboki, Derewno, and Bakszty (4th police district). Those gminas are broken down into 142 rural districts (sheriffs domains), 1,353 villages and other residential units, and 12,340 huts or cabins. The following are identified towns within the province: (1st police district) Slobodka, Zuprany, Soly, Holszany, Oszmiana Murowana, Boruny and Grauzyszki; (2nd police district) Zaskiewicze, Bienica, Smorgon, and Krewo; (3rd police district) Subotniki, Lipniszki, Konwaliszki, Gieranony, Hermaniszki, Dziewieniszki, Trobiele, Iwie, Mikolajow, Dudy, Lazduny, Traby, Surwiliszki, and Juratishki; (4th police district) Wolozyn, Wiszniew, Slowiensk, Zabrzez, Derewno, and Naliboki. The chief occupations of the inhabitants are mainly agriculture and lumbering with transportation down the Berezina. Industrial fabrication is poorly represented. Of the industrial facilities, the one notable exception is the iron foundry of Prince Witgenstein in Naliboki [ed.- Kletistche, destroyed in World War II], manufacturing various forged and cast iron products with an annual revenue of 44,025 rubles. Other factories worth mentioning: a pottery factory at Krewo, and wool products made at Holszany (belts, stockings, and socks).
Regarding churches: Oszmiana province is divided into the two Orthodox deaconates of Oszmiana and Wolozyn, the first of which contains 14 parishes: Oszmiana, Smorgon (two-- the Transfiguration of Christ and St. Michael), Bienica, Krewo (two: Holy Trinity and St. Alexander Nevsky) Zalesie, Losk, Holszany, Traby, Cycyn, Juratiski, Sutkowo, and Michalowszczyzna. There are 14 Orthodox parish churches, 8 affiliates, 9 cemeteries, 4 chapels, and 23,392 parishioners (11,693 men and 11,699 women). The Wolozyn Orthodox deaconate has 12 parishes: Wolozyn (two: St. Joseph and St. Constance), Wiszniew, Zabrzezie, Mikolajow, Slowiensk, Dubina, Horodzilow, Hruzdow, Douwbeny, Bakszty and Horodzki, with 12 parish churches, 3 affiliates, 6 cemeteries, 3 chapels, and a count of 27,400 parishioners (13,515 men and 13,885 women).

The Story of Leah Dudman-Bar and Chana Podbersky from a conversation with Leah Dudman



At first I was sent by the Judenrat to work in the army camp near Bogdonova. I worked there baking bread for the Germans and from there I was transferred to the army camp in Podberze. Together with me all the time there was another Vishnevan girl by the name of Chana Podversky, the daughter of Itza-Lebl Podversky. The usual procedure was that every Sunday we would go home and the German commandant treated us almost like a father. He had six daughters and he always emphasized that fact and loved to converse with us. Most of the times when we would go home he would drive us in his car so he could take some food supplies for my family. At more than one occasion he entered our home and saw with his own eyes the suffering of my parents. With tears in their eyes they begged him to save me and my sister Raisel. He promised he would do whatever he could. On that awful Sunday he also took us as usual to our house and as we neared the gate of the ghetto, we saw thousands of Christians gathering around one of the homes. We also saw a dark haze and smoke reaching up to the skies, and there were screams. At first we thought it was some Christian person who had died, and my friend and I whispered to each other, "They deserve it" or something like this. But when we came closer to the ghetto gate, a Christian woman stopped the car and screamed as loud as she could, "In the name of God, get out of here. In town they are slaughtering everyone."
The commandant and the soldier said to us, "Immediately get out of the car and run to your work place. We will go inside the gate and see what is happening there." When they returned they told us that when they arrived there the SS people who were surrounding the town forced them to take part in the annihilation and the killing of all the Jews of the town. And that was not all; they ordered them to bring us there, and if they didn’t the commandant would be punished. The soldier who was with him the entire day witnessing the torture told us what he saw with tears in his eyes. From all the awful sights he saw he now was vomiting and had diarrhea the entire day. The commandant immediately told us he would not give us up no matter what. He suggested that for this night we sleep there but early in the morning we must run to one of the Christians that we knew and he would keep in touch with us. We did as he told us and we reached the Christian man and hid in his house for a few days but when things became more dangerous since the SS troops looked for us everywhere including where we worked, and in the sheds, and in the place we were hiding. It was a miracle they didn’t find us. So he transferred us to a Polish woman’s house where we hid for 6 weeks. At the end the Christian man made a communication between us and the Jews from Kerve who would go to work in Bogdonova. Since now the Jews of Vishnevo were annihilated and a few others went to the forest. So now they were replaced in Bogdonova.
Now he told us that at one time when they returned from work to Kerve, they should take us with them. The person who drove them was a Jew named Shlomo Horwitz, a native of Kerve, who now lives in Farvitkin (1970). Shlomo Horwitz did as he was told and let us go in the car and we arrived in the ghetto of Kerve. I must emphasize that the situation in the ghetto of Kerve was different from that of most of the neighboring towns’ ghetto. Their commandant truly defended them and he lived in the ghetto. He knew everything that was done and everything they planned to do. They didn’t hide anything from him, and he took care of all the people who wanted to annihilate them. Whenever the people above him asked him to annihilate the Jews, he said he needed his Jews because that they still hadn’t finished building the roads or the airport that he planned to build near the town. And as others told, the Sunday when the Jews of Vishnevo were annihilated, he was with all his Jews who worked in Bogdonova and Vishnevo, and he was witness to the massacre of the Jews of Vishnevo. He succeeded in saving the lives of his Jews from the SS, claiming that they were very needed workers.
As soon as he found out about us, and he found out about us immediately since he lived with the Jews in the ghetto, he called us and told us about the destruction of the Jews of our town, and all that he saw with his own eyes. "You were left alone and orphaned. You must do everything to stay alive so you can tell the future generations to what they did to the Jews of Vishnevo." He also told us, while deeply sighing, as if it was his own terrible tragedy, "I am also an orphan and have been one since I was a little child, with no mother and father, alone in the world. It was only because I had such a strong desire and stubbornness to survive no matter what, that I am alive today."
He knew that people didn’t want us in the ghetto, so he ended the conversation by saying, "I will defend you and find you some shelter." He gave us some food supplies and said that we should come to him if we had any trouble. As I said before the fate of the Jews of Kerve was very different from the others’, and they did not experience tragedy at that point. But finally, when most of the jobs were done, many were spread out to different working camps. Most went to the camp in Zazmir. At one point we were also sent by the Judenrat of Kerve to this camp instead of two local Jewish guys whose turn it was to be sent. Here there were thousands of people, remnants of ghettoes from Oshmina, Svir, Kerve, and other towns that were destroyed or were waiting to be destroyed. They were busy with paving roads, so Nachamka and I also worked on paving roads. We were barefoot and starving with torn clothes and we worked at this hard labor until we became sick with typhus, which was spreading throughout the camp. After two weeks of very high fever we knew that we would survive and our fever finally broke. Slowly we felt better and again we were sent to work. - Thursday, April 24, 2003 at 10:59:22 (PDT)

Near the grave of our brothers Noah Podbersky As soon as we returned from the forest as the war concluded we stood somberly by the brotherly tomb that coated the bones of our dear ones and our hearts anguished as if mountains of sorrow were pressing upon them. Echoes of the lament of the tormented and the throes of the demised, our beloved who were snatched to be slaughtered and plowed in your earth, reverberate for generations to come, Vishnevo.
The blood of our sisters and brothers is howling to us from your land. "Vow" shout beloved people and shudder the nations of the world, reiterate and incessantly disclose, hence the mother earth will never forget the deeds of the executioners (hangmen), that the world will never forget what was done us. Will they recall? Will the world retain it? Do the ones who are provided on this day a knife in their grasp bethink this in their heart? Vishnevo, one of thousands of Jewish shtetls that the foe, may his name be erased from all memory, pulled out from its roots, the enemy that shattered you on its way to conquer the world. Here on this narrow footpath, Kerve Street, whose name is emblematic of its essence, the concourse of blood. The Nazis pushed and shoved the next of kin of our kindred while they were bewildered, numbed and almost deceased. They took their last steps holding hands and saying, "Shma Israel." Hero Israel, Adonai is our God, Adonai is One.
And here, at the edge of Kerve Street across from you, near the wall of the unfinished building, the wild brutes who feigned to be mankind, put their victims, rows behind rows with their faces to the bulwark, they commanded the beloved to crawl on their knees and here they shot their necks, one after the other and discarded them in the fire. Numerous of them jolting between life and death, and another yet alive. It’s a summer day and the world is radiant all around us an the sun is shining and the flowers all shimmering, encompassing us in multitudes of colors, and my heart is dwelling on the ice cap.
The Nazis torment terminated. We too took certain revenge. But who can meliorate from the torment that the remnants experienced? The vestiges that lost everything that they cherished. Who will heal their wounds? The laceration of the ones who walk solitary in the environ with everlasting anguish in their hearts? A grief that nevermore assuaged with heavy hearts we departed the ossuary and forever said goodbye to our dear ones. How long will this grave linger in its plot? A year? Two years? And then this land would be plowed and all things would be as if it never arise. Hush, my heart. Alive

When World War II begun in 1939, I was not living in my birthplace, Vishnevo. I resided at the house of my aunt Grunia nee Lubchensky Svirsky, who lived in Svir. Already in 1933 my father transferred me to Svir. My mother was very sick. She became paralyzed. My father wanted to be near her in the hospital in Vilna. She was taken there by my father so she could receive treatment from the finest specialists. My parents decided that to leave me in Vishnevo with just hired help was a bad idea since I was only 4 years old, so they determined that the most suitable place for me would be with my aunt Sonia, a very gracious and loving woman. When I was exactly five years old, on June 28, 1933, my beloved mother passed away. From then on my aunt took a more permanent custody of me. I lived with my aunt, uncle and a cousin of mine by the name of Zelda. Zelda also became orphaned from her mother and also resided in my aunt Grunia’s house.


1941 I was only 13 years old when the Nazis entered Svir in 1941. In one year I found myself at the mercy of the hand of cruel fate. I became separated from my relatives, in a world filled with the anguish of the days of the Holocaust. I still hadn’t experienced much of life and already the main question that I was focused on was "What will my fate be? Will I find a way out of this trap?" Constantly, when I stood at Death’s door, I whispered a prayer to my mother in her grave asking her to protect her youngest child from the bitter, brutal environment that encompassed me, from the storm that constantly whispered "eradication" to me. The day that Chaim Avramson came to me to write this chapter, the images of days of the Holocaust kept flowing in my head and my eyes became red from the tears. I let my eyes tear without stopping, reasoning that maybe it would bring me some redemption. When there were no more tears and my eyes dried, shivers came to my body, and an electric shock rushed through my limbs when I recalled that era.
I will start my story from the day my cousin Zelda was sent to the labor camp in Zazmir. The Nazis ordered the Judenrat in Svir to send them a hundred Jewish youths to the camp in Zazmir. The Judenrat gave them a list, and amongst the list was the name of Zelda. My uncle and aunt had arranged for a hiding place for Zelda as soon as the Nazis entered Svir. She was hiding in the house of a Christian acquaintance that agreed to take care of her in exchange for a huge amount of merchandise that my aunt and uncle gave him from a store they owned. When Zelda didn’t show up in the designated place, the Judenrat threatened my Uncle Zelig Svirsky who was already imprisoned at that point, that he would be sent to Zazmir instead of Zelda. Grunia, who was very confused, decided to bring Zelda back from her hiding place. Zelda went out of the house to the place where all the people who were sent to the work camp were gathering, and when the door was shut behind her, we all stood by the window, watching her go away. All of a sudden, my aunt Grunia started sobbing uncontrollably. "What did I do by my own hand? I gave her to the killers!" Then she fell fainting to the ground.
Weeks passed but the Jewish people of the ghettoes were still naïve and hopeful that nothing bad would happen to them, although there were many signs that showed elimination was coming soon. During nights, many of us couldn’t sleep, with all asking, "What will tomorrow bring?" The young people, the ones who still had some energy and who still had a very strong survival instinct, kept looking for ways to be saved. The situation in the ghetto in Svir was morbid, the prospect of escape was very slim. The ghetto was a tightly shut cage. In spite of the danger, a few were able to arrange for hiding places in the villages around the town. I remember the fall of 1942. One day, when it started getting dark and the ghetto was completely silent, I sat with my uncle Zelig by the lighted oil lamp. I recall how greatly I wished on that awful day to feel his hand petting me and to see his warm _expression when he looked at me. My aunt Grunia was very busy preparing bags. She filled them with food supplies for us to take when at a moment’s notice we would need to escape. We knew that the most perilous times would arrive. In front of us there was a Torah book. I remember that my uncle kept turning the pages until he reached a passage and he started reading it aloud. "And your life will be hanging across from you and you will be fearful day and night and you will not believe that you will survive. In the morning you will say, `Who will give me evening?’ and in the evening you will say `Who will give me morning?’ And your heart will be fearful from what your eyes will see."

I have been trying unsuccessfully for many years to find traces of my grandfather, Vincent Kurzeniec.
I only have a copy of his death certificate and application for a marriage license.
He was born Dec.29, 1883, in Poland. I believe he arrived in America in 1905, but I can't be sure.
The only other information I have is that his father's name was John. Being that there is a town in
Belarus called Kurzeniec, I wonder if this would give me a clue as to his origin.
I would appreciate any help at this point in time.
Thank you. Margaret Krzysiak

Isser Yehuda Unterman, the second Ashkenazi Chief Rabi of Israel, was born in 1886 in Brest-Litovsk (Brisk). His father was a teacher. Among Unterman's ancestors we find Rabbi Yom Tov Lipman Heller (1579 - 1654), author of the Mishnah commentary Tosefot Yom Tov, and Rabbi Shaul Wahl Katzenellenbogen (1540 - 1616). About him the legend tells that he was elected King of Poland for one day.
Already in a young age Unterman was known as the "Illui of Brisk". In 1898 he was invited to become one of the founding students of Yeshiva Anaf Etz Chaim in Maltsch. For some time he also studied at the Mir Yeshiva, but later returned to Maltsch.
After his marriage Unterman continued his studies at the Kollel of the Volozhin Yeshiva where he was ordained. During his studies in Volozhin he opened a Yeshiva in the neighbouring town of Vishnevo. This yeshiva was very successful - even the Hafetz Chaim sent one of his nephews to study there. Unterman developed laryngitis which ended his regular teaching career. He chose the rabbinate. He was appointed rabbi in Mohilna near Minsk. Later he moved to Amstibova.
In 1923 Unterman was chosen to be rabbi of Liverpool. He immediately learned fluent English and quickly became acclimated to his position. He worked with the youth of the community and united all the Jewish congregations of Liverpool under one umbrella organization. He strengthened the local yeshiva and brought students from Germany and other countries. He also established a Talmud Torah academy in Liverpool.
During the air raids of World War II Unterman refused to abandon his post. But he paid regular visits to the members of his congregation which were dispersed among various villages and to Jewish internees of camps for foreigners. Unterman established a home for refugee children outside of Liverpool. In 1946 Unterman was elected Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv-Yafo. As in Liverpool Unterman strengthened Torah institutions and public services like rabbinical courts. He served as a member of the Chief Rabbinate Council. In 1956 he was appointed Chief Rabbi of the State of Israel. He took full advantage of his position and advocated various issues, especially for the understanding between the religious and the secular population.

I went to my mom's and grabbed a few photos of my grandfather Harry Sigman, naturalized Herman Sigman, born Chaim Benymin Zigman in Vishnevo in 1897 to Shaje Zigman and Lena Scher. There is also some connection to the Sussman's but I don't know what it is. Lena Scher is the daughter of Barney/Dov Ber and Bella unknown (possibly Sussman). There are many other's at the Vishnever Brother's society plots, coincidentally on Staten Island. Most were buried here many, many years before my family moved here.
Thanks again for your help. .

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

Alperoviches to Kurenetz - and to my fellow Alperovich.

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Vishnevo during the second world war
Chyena Rabinovich (sister of Yehoshua Rabinovitz, mayor of Tel Aviv in the 1970s.)

Vishnevo
Summer of 1939, During the summer months the situation became more and more ominous. The political circumstances in Poland seemed very volatile. The papers were full of ignominious announcements about the anticipation for the second world war. Poland seemed to be the main territory to be concerned, but we still hoped that everything would pass peacefully and the town as the rest of Poland would continue with its survival. The youth movements Hashomer Hatzair, Poalei-Zion, the League for the Working Eretz Israel, Ha’chalutz Ao’ved, Beitar, and others, all were brimming with activities and abundant with energy of youth. The Hebrew school Tarbut with its 8 grades, had 200 students. When the kids graduated, some of them went to Vilna to continue their studies either in high school or schools for teachers, schools for accountants, or mercantile or technical schools. When they returned, they became the intelligentsia of the town and later on, naturally they became the primary recruiting base for Soviet officials (fix).
In contrast there was also the more traditional Agouda. At the head stood Rabbi Weinstein with a few well-to-do homeowners who were strongly opposed to Zionism. Amongst the people were Moshe Shimshelevicz, Leib son of Kopl, and others. They tirelessly (though with little success) worked against Zionist activities in town. At one point they decided to change the essence of the Tarbut school from a school witch all subjects were instructed in Hebrew only into a old fashion religious school of the Agouda. The Rabbi viciously attacked Tarbut during synagogue meetings but his influence was not strong and the Zionist activities continued. I would like to point out that as soon as the Russians came, Rabbi Weinstein left the town and was successful in crossing the border to Lithuania and from there he was successful in reaching Israel and today he lives in Jerusalem.
Anyway, back to August, 1939. In the midst of our routine disputes between the different ideologies, the war was announced and the Nazis marched towards the border of Poland. The atmosphere became full of anxiety, the morning after the announcement, we already saw the first refugees from Warsaw and Lodz and there were rumors that the Germans were coming near us. From the refugees we promptly heard that the Nazis were terrorizing the Jews as soon as they arrived at Jewish towns and all the Jews in Vishnevo became very fearful. Just at that point we found out about the agreement between the Soviet Union and Germany. The Soviet Union would annex our area we were told. We knew immediately what would happen to the Zionist movement under the USSR. We knew we would not be able to get to Eretz Israel, but we also knew that our lives would not be taken from us. So, no wonder when the rumors came true and the first tanks of the Soviet Union arrived, the entire town came to greet them with flowers in their hands, and everyone was very excited. At the center of the market, a stage was built and the representative of the Jews, Yakov Hirsch Alishkevitch, gathered by a few local Christians, made excited speeches. At the end of Yakov’s speech, he said, “Long live the Soviet Union!” And all of a sudden we were part of the National Socialist Republic of White Russia.......to be continued

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 International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) is
pleased to announce its first Genealogical Cruise, a unique opportunity to
combine a terrific Jewish genealogy learning experience with a memorable
cruise. The cruise will depart from the Port of Miami on Carnival's M/S
Fascination on Monday, December 1, 2003 and return on Friday, December 4,
2003, with port calls in Key West and Cozumel.
While at sea, participants will have the opportunity to attend lectures and
informal gatherings with experienced Jewish genealogists and network with
others pursuing similar research. Lectures will include an introduction to
Jewish genealogy and overviews of Jewish geography, interviewing techniques,
Federal, state and local U.S. records and Holocaust research.
The lectures will also provide information on the enormous on-line resources available from
one's home computer, the vast holdings of the LDS Family History Library and its network of
local centers around the world, and the resources
available through the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Speakers include Peter Lande, expert on Holocaust research at the United
States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Daniel Schlyter, an LDS Family History
Library Collections Specialist and expert on Eastern European resources.
Members of the IAJGS Board of Directors will bring their expertise on
computers, Jewish geography and Jewish history, Israeli genealogical
research, Lithuanian Jewish genealogical research, Russian documentation,
and in family research across the United States. Please refer to the
IAJGS website, www.iajgs.org for a description of the program and the

intermediate genealogists will find them especially valuable.
Other genealogical benefits to participants include assistance in using
shipboard computers to search on-line databases, informal "Ask the
Experts" sessions to address genealogical questions, and a collection of
"take home" genealogical reference materials.
The lectures and informal sessions will be scheduled around the port
calls,so that participants may take full advantage of both the learning
experience and the visits to Key West and Cozumel.

------------------------------------------------------------------------ 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) - Thursday, March 13, 2003 at 17:27:36 (PST)

After you get it maybe we can figure out who is there. I know my grandfather A"h is there but the rest of the people is a mystery to me.

Shalom Nathan, You could either scan the picture (GIF or JPEG) and send it as an email attachment or
at kinko or other copy place you could make good quality copy on the spot and send it to; Eilat Levitan

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Moshe wrote;... my friend Leyshke Shimen Itshe's sent me the letter as follows: How did I survive.
By Leyzer Meltser,Translated from Russian by M. Porat, February 11th, 2003 I, Meltser Dovid-Leyzer was born in Volozhin in 1923. Meltser Shimen Itskhok son of Zvi of Vishnevo was my father; Sore Sheyne nee Rabinovitsh was my mother.
I was studying in the Volozhin Hebrew Tarbut School and in the Polish Primary Povshekhna until 1939. From 1939 until 1941, during the Soviet rule, I completed my studies in the Russian School.
The Germans occupied Volozhin on June 1941. All Jewish inhabitants were transferred into the Ghetto a month later. 200 Jews were gathered on the towns Sport Stadium and executed by shooting In October 1941. It was the first mass slaughter in Volozhin. The second massacre occurred near the ancient Graveyard on May 10, 1942, where 2000 Jews were murdered. The last mass slughter, the third one took place in the Volozhinka streambed in August 1942. Our family; my parents, brother and sister and I were driven away from the ghetto by the Germans and their assistants; local Policemen. We were taken into the black smith building that was erected during the time of the Soviet rule. The building was located on the Dubinski Street (now Sovietskaya) .
The Aktion took place during the second Pogrom, They put us in groups of eighty people each and transfered us group by group to the killing field.
the killings were conducted near the Jewish Graveyard The Jews were executed by shooting.
My father told me...
"Run, my son, perhaps you'll be the sole to survive of our family".
I put myself on his shoulders, removed some tiles from the roof and run away.
One other person was able to jumped and run away after me, It was Ele Mlot. I spent some days in forest, than returned to the Volozhin Ghetto where I was hiding in a nook.
I found out that my parents, my sister and brother were executed on May 10, 1942. I run back into forest after the third slaughter, than I was able to transfer to the shtetl Krevo, where a ghetto still existed. From Krevo I went to Smorgon where from they transferred us to Lithuania and imprisoned in the Zhensistoria concentration camp. A group of us they brought into Vilnius in December 1942, where we were ordered to build a commercial rail station. Once in the evening, returning from work, I run away into a near by forest. I wandered there some days until I met with Russian Partisans. I joined the Bagration group of the Voroshilov Brigade. I was with the partisans until the liberation of Belarus and Lithuania. After liberation I joined the Red Army. The Victory day I met in Magdenburgh, Germany. I was released from the army and returned to Volozhin in December 1945 and went to work. I married Sofiya (Sonia) Milikovski, daughter of Leyzer Itskhok and Hana born Berman from Horodok
Our marriege took place in Volozhin in 1947. Our daughter Hasia was born in 1950. She was ill and passed away at age 31 to our great grievance in the year 1981.
Our son Shimon was born in Volozhin on 1954. We made Aliya to Israel, the entire family, my wife, my son Shimon, his wife Polina, his children Asia and Yakov and me where now we live.
I will post the letter in Volozhin stories

A Wehrmacht unit participated in this Aktion, after which thousands of Jews from nearby towns -- Ivenets, Naliboki, Rubezhevichi, Korelichi, and Lubach -- were brought to Novogrudok. The ghetto that had been established earlier was divided into three sections: Section A, the courthouses, where skilled craftsmen were concentrated; Section B, the Pereselka area; and Section C, Nazaratanek, where the school buildings were located

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.
Best wishes

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.

----------------------------------------------------------------------- My Grandfather, Jersey RASHNAGOVITCH allegedly form Minsk came to American in the early 1900's. His name was changed to ROGOFF at Ellis Island. I cannot find any listing anywhere so far for this name at all
including the Ellis Island web site. There are Rogoff's listed but not the
original name. His wife's name was Ida Yetta as listed on his Social Security application. He was born in 1876 and died in Miami in 1971. I would
be interested in finding out if there were any siblings of my Grandfather
that either came to the US or remained.

I put starts with Ras - town name Minsk
From: rrogers@si.rr.com (Ron Rogers)
To: EilatGordn@aol.com I am not sure what your name is but this looks like you may have found it. My Father Schmul came as an infant (so we were told) and his brother was
about two years older than him. The female does not seem to be my
Grandfathers wife name as we know it-but who knows. I am going to contact my
cousin and see if his Fathers real name was Hirsh. He went by Harry so that
looks good. All the dates look correct
Thanks so much for your help.

To: EilatGordn@aol.com Your first email was it. It listed my Father, my two Uncles and my
Grandmother. My cousin, Hirsche's son ( he just found out his Fathers real

------------------------------------------------------------------------ In some yizkor books for shtetls in the area of Vishnevo they write about the members of the Shimshelevitz family who lived in the shtetls and were uncles or cousins ofItzhak Ben-Zvi Shimshelevitz ;
http://www.israeliscent.com/IsraelMagazine/israeliview/israeli-president-Yitzhak-Ben-Zvi-e.htm
Itzhak Ben-Zvi - Zionist labor movement
leader and historian - was elected the
second President of the State of Israel
on December 8, 1952. Ben-Zvi was born in
the town of Poltava in the Ukraine in 1884
as Yitzhak Shimshelevitz, the son of a
Jewish scholar and writer who Hebraicized
his name to Zvi Shimshi (thus, the name Ben-Zvi -
"son of Zvi.") Born into a family steeped in
Jewish tradition and Zionist fervor, Ben-Zvi's
name is closely associated with Jewish
self-defense: at the age of twenty, in
the wake of the 1903 Kishinev Pogrom, he
was one of the founders of a Jewish defense
organization in the Ukraine. After immigrating
to Palestine in 1907, Ben-Zvi was a central
figure in Hashomer - the defense organization
that guarded Jewish agricultural settlements
in the early days of the Zionist enterprise.
Expelled from Palestine by the Ottoman authorities
(together with David Ben-Gurion, later the
first Prime Minister of Israel) during the
First World War because of Zionist activities,
the pair organized a base for labor Zionism in
the United States. In 1917, they joined
the 39th Kings' Fusiliers, returning to Palestine
with the British army. Later, in the wake of
Arab attacks on Jewish communities in the
early 1920s, Ben-Zvi became a founding member
of the Haganah, the underground Jewish defense organization.
An avid socialist, Ben-Zvi was a leader of socialist
Zionist parties from an early age, and was among the
founders of the Histadrut - General Federation of Labor
in 1920. A key political figure, he served in many
senior posts. Between 1931 and 1948 he was first
chairman and then President of the Va'ad Haleumi
(the national council) - a "diplomatic post" in
which he served as the chief representative of
the Jewish community vis-a-vis the mandatory
authorities. Elected to the First Knesset in
January 1949, Itzhak Ben-Zvi was chosen as
President of the State of Israel in 1952.
Itzhak Ben-Zvi resigned his Knesset post and moved
the President's residence from Rehovot to Jerusalem.
However, he was adamant that the President should
serve as an example for the citizenry and that his
home should reflect the austerity and simplicity
of the times. Thus, President Ben-Zvi insisted on
living in a wooden prefabricated dwelling -
accommodations that were augmented by two larger
similar buildings in the yard, used for official receptions.
It was Ben-Zvi, renowned for his warmth, openness
and simple manner, who first held some of the annual
events which have since become traditions - including
"open house" at the President's residence during the
festival of Sukkot and the annual Independence Day
reception, an event in which ordinary citizens
participate, in addition to the reception held for
local dignitaries and the diplomatic corps.
Ben-Zvi took great interest in the various Jewish
communities who came to Israel, and in the history
of Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel.
He focused on the traditions, rituals and religious
art of Oriental Jewish communities - Yemenite, Persian,
Kurdish, Bucharan and others. He himself wrote some
twenty volumes on the history of Jewish communities
as well as on the unbroken chain of Jewish settlement
in the Land of Israel since the days of the Second Temple.
His work laid the foundations for Yad Yitzhak Ben-Zvi,
which is devoted to the study of Jewish communities as
well as of the Land of Israel and Jerusalem. However,
Ben-Zvi's devotion to the "Tribes of Israel," as they
were called at the time, was more than academic.
A proponent of "diversity" decades before the word
became popular, Ben-Zvi invited representatives of
different Jewish ethnic communities and of minority
communities to the President's residence - a monthly
event attended by 100-200 guests from all over the
country. Each group related the history of its community,
its customs, rituals and traditions, and displayed
the items which evolved around these traditions.
In keeping with this interest, Ben-Zvi enhanced
the decor of the President's residence with ceremonial
objects and handicrafts of different ethnic communities.
A rug woven by Yemenite women sparked the establishment
of Maskit - a prestigious non-profit chain which for
decades encouraged such crafts and marketed them.
Ben-Zvi served two full five-year terms as President,
and was reelected for a third term in December 1962
(when the Presidency was not yet limited by law to two terms).
He died six months later on April 23, 1963.
After his death, the Yad Yitzhak Ben-Zvi research
institute was established on the site of the wooden
buildings which had served for over a decade as the
official residence of the second President of
the State of Israel.

I received a note from Al Podber;
My name is Alan Podber and my grandfather was Jacob Podberesky. I recently learned that my grandmother, Yetta (originally Yenta) Shimshalevitch, was originally from Lyubcha, Belarus. Two towns by that name are near the pre-war Vishnevo home of the Podbereskys. Therefore, it is not unreasonable to suspect that I may be related to the Vishnevo Podbereskys.
Jacob and Yenta had three daughters in Europe: Ida, Sonia and Ruth. Jacob went to America first and was followed later by his wife and children. Yenta came to America in 1920 at age 38 with the three children. She was accompanied by her sister-in-law, Rachel Podberesky Rafalowitz, and family. A cousin, Dayzowska (Dean), was with them. If you have a way of determining whether any of the Podberesky descendants recognize any of this information, I'd be interested in hearing from them.
Thank you,
Al Podber
Shimshalevitch was also a family that resided in the area near Vishnevo- the president of Israel; Ytzhak ben Zvi was a descendant.

ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!
Since I contacted you, I have received 3 emails from Nigeria (or other places in Africa) claiming that
if I allow them to transfer huge sums of money into my bank account, they
will allow me to keep a considerable amount. This scam originated from
Nigeria many years ago. They used to use mail, but now they have gone
hi-tech. They ask the receiver to contact them at their email address. When
a person does this, the Nigerians then request an amount of money be placed
in their bank account. Along with the request, I inadvertently received 4
pages of email addresses. It is obvious, from this list, they have tapped
into either your computer, or probably, the organization in Europe that was
the original source of our contact. I have misplaced my source for searching
for relatives in Russia, but the email address name is a city in Russia that
begins with R. Am sure nobody named Cohen, Caplan or Shapiro will go for
this scam, but perhaps people should know about this. Sorry about this, but
I felt I should bring this to your immediate attention

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.

Subject: Theodore Rogovin
Message: I am the great great grandaughter of Theodore Rogovin who lived in Latvia mid to late 1800's His son (my grandfather) Simon Rogovin lived from 1886-1959 He immigrated to the USA sometime, and lived in Pennsylvania. Theodore was married to Rachael. I am looking for any info about him or relatives before him. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Submitter: Lev B. Lundin, Russia
Subject: I am looking for relatives
Message: Hello!
I am looking for the relatives who have left in USA till 1914. Please, if you know somebody from them, please respond me!
My grandfather Avroom-Yankev (Abraham-Jackob) Lundin (1860-1940) and my grandmother Merke Lundina (Rogovina) lived in Minsk, Russia (Nemiga street, 19 fl. 3 (4)) (Ioselevich's house). The grandfather worked in Minsk at a Rackovschik's factory (wine, alcogol, yeast). My father Haim-Boruh Lundin and my brothers Slome-Weiwool and Shlome (Solomon) have gone away before 1-st world war in New York, USA (Holley aw.) to the uncle Ele-Laser Rogovin. In 1914 my father has returned to Russia, and the brothers have remained in USA. During the second world war the communication with them was lost.
I can send you photos of my father Haim-Boruh and his cousins, Isaak, Lev and Ziegel Davidivich Lundin, stayed in Russia. The photos are made in 1961. I also can send my photo made in 1938. In this photo I seems like son of one of my brothers, living in USA. With the best regards, Lev B. Lundin.

Subject: Family?
Message: My great grandfather was named Abraham (avram) Rogovin. I know he had 3 sons, named Jacob, Louis, Hershel. Although Abraham visited the USA,his 3 sons (there might have been more siblings)remained in the USA. From what I know, the town of volozhin was of some significance. I expect that Abraham was born abt 1860. Let me know if I have found the right ROGOVIN family. Best regards, Jeff Rogovin



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Submitter: Lev B. Lundin, Russia
Subject: May be we are relatives?
Message: Dear Jeff Rogovin! It is possible, that we are the relatives on my grandmother, the mother of my father.
She called Mary (Merke). She was born in 1856 (+ -2 years). She lived in Minsk and she has perished in a yard of a house, where she lived almost all of the life, in the street, under which one in concrete tubes the historical river Nemiga, mentioned in the epos « The lay of the warfare waged by Igor». She has perished from hands of the fascists. She was 85 years old. Her brother named Ele-Leiser from Russia has leaved in USA approximately in 1907 and lived in New York, he was the tailor. His nephews (grandmother’s sons) have arrived from Minsk to uncle Ele-Leiser Rogovin in 1909 or in 1910 to New York. Their names are: Schlome-Weiwl (Solomon-Vladimir) Haim-Boruh and Sleme Lundin, thus, you can have in USA relatives Lundins from Minsk. Haim Boruh, my father, returned to Russia in 1914. I think, that the related feelings for you are advanced enough also to you it will be pleasant to find the lineals, which one you did not know earlier. Therefore for 82 years of life I have decided to address you. Sincerely your,
Lev Lundin

Subject: Nathan Rogovin - Minsk
Message: I am the great-grandaughter of Nathan Rogovin who came to the US from Minsk at the turn of the century with his wife Kate (Blackman?)They had several chilkdren beginning with Florence in 1892 then Esther (my grandmother), Lou, Gussie and Al. Florence and Gussie died in the influenza epidemic in New York City in 1918. My mother, Norma Berger, is the only child of Esther and is still living. She remembers her grandparents - Nathan was an avid opera-goer who started a paint business and Kate had been an orphan in Minsk. That is all we know about the Rogovins of Minsk but at one time my mother heard that all the Rogovins from that city are related. If you have any information about my great-grandparents I would be very interested and of course I wish you much success with your search.

Subject: Dear Karen Freeman!
Message: That the majority of Rogovins you know is came from Minsk, convinces me that we with you the far relatives. The surname Rogovin does not fall into to number eurysynusic and contingency of their plenty in small city (then the population of Minsk was not more than 150000) is very improbable. Follow-up I can notify, that my grandmother, Merke Rogovina possessed a trade of hairdresser: she is skilful to make wigs and has trained to this several my aunts. In the beginning 20th I often saw, how it was made. Is sure, that this trade was family and there can be your grandmother something about it will recollect.
The relevant circumstance have to be and alliance with Lundins family. My two uncles (brothers of the father) Lundins, approximately in 1910 16 y.o. or 17 y.o. boys have gone away from native Minsk, from a Nemiga street, in USA, looking for a good luck toward to the uncle Rogovin. Maybe you will be possible to contact with descendants of these two Lundins. Certainly, there are many of Lundins in US, but there can not be more than one-two sons from Minsk. If such connection will be found out , this means that we are really relatives with you .
You can see my photo and acquaint with my verses (in Russian) on a site http://windoms.sitek.net/~lundin
I would like to know, whether some of my verses have liked you.

Message: It was so nice to hear from you and think that I may actually have relatives in Russia! I will try to follow up on the leads you gave me and will research immigration records here as well. If you are able to find anything about Nathan Rogovin and Kate Blackman (Marriage records?) please be sure to let me know. I have a good friend who speaks Russian and Lithuanian and studied Russian in college so if you need to send anything in Russian that is OK. Hope we turn up some more information in New York and Russia. With best regards. Karen Freeman

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 ( Krasne), 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

Nahum Goldmann Nahum Goldmann: "I Told Them to Throw Themselves into the Water" In his memories, Nahum Goldmann, first president of the World Jewish Congress, tells its difficult negotiations with the American Government to save some refugees. "A number of Jews in France who had somehow succeeded in getting Mexican visas sailed for Mexico on the S.S. Quenza. When they arrived in Tampico, if I remember rightly the Mexican government declared that its consul had not been authorized to issue them visas and refused to admit them, ordering the ship to return. Of course, if they had landed in France these people would immediately have been deported by the Nazi authorities. I received desperate telegrams from the Central Jewish Committee in Mexico and from the individuals in question, asking me to do everything possible to have them admitted to the United States when the ship stopped to refuel at Norfolk, Virginia. At the request of Stephen Wise, Mrs. Franklin Roosevelt, deeply sympathetic and eager to help, spoke to the President, who informed us he was prepared to instruct the immigration authorities in Norfolk to admit these refugees without visas, provided we could persuade Secretary of State Cordell Hull, who was very conservative in such matters, not to oppose the move.
Dr. Wise and I went to see Secretary Hull to ask him to agree to the admission of these unfortunate souls. At first he took a strictly negative attitude, explaining that under American law no one may immigrate without a visa. When I pressed him relentlessly, he exclaimed: "Do you see that American flag behind my desk? I have sworn by it to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States. You are asking me to break my oath." I told Mr. Hull that I read in the newspaper about some anti-Nazi German seamen who had jumped ship rather than return to Germany. The Coast Guard had had to send out a cutter to pick them up and take them to Ellis Island, where all immigrants whose papers were not in order were held.
"If you like," I said, "I'll send the Quenza refugees a telegram, and I guarantee they'll jump overboard at Norfolk. Then the Coast Guard will have to send boats to pick them up. Some of them may catch pneumonia. In the end you'll have to do the same with them as you've done with the German seamen. I personally have nothing against the idea of these unfortunate people sitting out rhe war in safety on Ellis Island. But why do you want me to go about it in this devious, complicated, expensive, and insalubrious way?" Hull gave me an angry look and said: "You are very cynical, Mr. Goldmann.
I wonder who is more cynical," I replied, "the Secretary who wants to condemn hundreds of Jewish refugees to certain death, or he who tries everything to save them." My argument seemed to impress him, because finally he said, in a grumbling tone: "Tell the President that if he issues the orders on his own authority I won't make any difliculties." The order was issued; the refugees were allowed to land at Norfolk, sent briefly to Ellis Island, and later legally admitted as immigrants. Nahum Goldmann excerpt from Memories, the autobiography of Nahum Goldmann, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1970, p 202.
Nahum Goldmann
(1895 - 1982), community leader.
Born in Viznevo, Lithuania, he was taken as a child to Frankfurt on Main, Germany, and was early influenced by Zionism. He had a broad general education, spoke several languages and attended Heidelberg University where he obtained doctorates in law and in philosophy.
During World War I he joined the propaganda division of the German Foreign Ministry in Berlin. After the War Goldmann worked as a journalist, established the Eshkol publishing house and - together with Jacob Klatzkin - launched and edited the German-language Encyclopaedia Judaica of which ten volumes appeared before being stopped by the Nazis.
Active in Zionist work, in 1934 he was appointed Jewish Agency representative at the League of Nations in Geneva. He worked to establish the World Jewish Congress and at its foundation in 1936 was elected chairman of its executive. Goldmann was deeply involved in activities to help Jewish refugees in the 1930s. In 1940 he moved to the US where he was involved in the political work of the Jewish Agency and from 1949 was president of the World Jewish Congress. In 1956 Goldmann was also elected chairman of the Jewish Agency and president of the World Zionist Organization, becoming the foremost figure in Jewish political life.
Among his achievements were the negotiations of the Reparations Agreement with Germany; the establishment of the Conference of Major Americans Jewish Organizations; activity on behalf of Soviet Jewry; and initiatives leading to the publication of the 16-volume English-language Encyclopaedia Judaica and the establishment of Beth Hatefutsoth – The Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Tel Aviv. In his later years he lived in Israel and Switzerland. Selected Bibliography: Nahum GOLDMANN: The Jewish Paradox. Pp. 218. London: Weidenfeld and Nicolsin, 1978 Nahum GOLDMANN: Memories. Pp.

Nahum Goldmann

(1894-1982) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nahum Goldmann was born in Vishnevo and lived with his paternal grandparnts in the shtetl until the age of six. Nahums, grandfather was a doctor and a leader of the jewish community in the area. At age six Nahum joined his parents in Germany. He was educated at German universities where he studied philosophy and law. From an early age he became strongly allied with Zionist thought, and during World War I, while working at the Jewish division of the German Foreign Ministry, he attempted to enlist the Kaiser's support for the Zionist idea.
In the 1920's, Goldmann was involved in publishing a Zionist periodical and also in launching the project of a German Jewish encyclopedia. In all, twelve volumes of the encyclopedia, ten in German and two in Hebrew, appeared before the Nazi rise to power halted the project. Retaining the idea, Goldmann was a key figure in the 1960's behind the English language Encyclopedia Judaica.
During the Mandate period, Goldmann was involved in a range of Zionist causes, including negotiations with the British, aimed at realizing the idea of Jewish statehood. In particular, he supported the partition of Palestine, arguing that sovereignty was more important than territory. In 1935, stripped of his German citizenship and forced to leave Germany, he settled first in Honduras and thereafter in New York. He continued to labor there for Zionist causes, and for several years represented the Jewish Agency in New York. In addition to his Zionist work, Goldmann championed other Jewish interests. Indeed, Goldmann never felt that a Jewish state would answer the needs of all the Jews, on the contrary, a strong Diaspora was always a must for the survival of the Jewish state . In 1936, he helped organize the World Jewish Congress, and was the first chairman of its executive board; he later served as its president for many years. He was a major link in negotiating German reparations to survivors following the Holocaust. He founded the Conference of Jewish Organizations (COJO) and was actively involved with other causes such as Soviet Jewry, Jewish education, and Jewish culture. Goldmann believed that the future of world Jewry depended largely on a successful fight against assimilation, and hence the attention to developing vibrant Jewish institutions in the Diaspora.
In 1962 Goldmann became a citizen of Israel, but despite frequent visits, never became a permanent resident, dividing his time primarily between Switzerland and Israel. He was critical of what he deemed was Israel's excessive reliance on and adulation of its military prowess, and following 1967, he faulted Israel for not adopting a more conciliatory stance towards the Arabs. Despite his belief in the centrality of Israel to the Jewish people, he was also convinced of Israel's dependence on the support of World Jewry and the world at large. His critics attributed this belief, in their eyes erroneous, to a mentality that essentially belongs in and to the Diaspora.

The Bund was founded as a Jewish social-democratic party in Vilnius (Vilna) in 1897. Because of the persecution of the tsarist government, the Central Committee of the party and most of its other departments started to operate from Geneva from 1898 onward. There were also departments of the Bund in London, Paris, New York and Buenos Aires and several local departments all over the Jewish diaspora. After the Russian Revolution of 1905, Vilnius (Vilna) became also a centre of official activities of the Bund.
Franz Kursky (1874-1950), whose real name was Samuel Kahan, was an activist of the Bund of the first hour. He brought the archives and the library of the Bund from Geneva to Vilnius (Vilna) in 1919, but removed them to Berlin during the Polish-Russian war in 1920. The archives and library stayed in Berlin until 1933, when the German Nazi-party came into power. Then he fled to Paris. When in Paris, Kursky had great difficulties to house the collection and he, therefore, sold the archives and the library to the founders of IISH, Nehemia de Lieme and Nicolaas Posthumus in November 1934. By that time the IISH was not yet officially opened and the Bund-collection was, on paper, the very first collection the Institute had acquired.
But the delivery of the collection was delayed and after a long correspondence, only a small part of the archives and library arrived in Amsterdam. This collection was not yet described when the German army invaded the Netherlands in May 1940. The Einsatzstab Alfred Rosenberg closed the premises of the IISH in July 1940 and everything was packed and shipped to Germany. After the collapse of the Nazi-regime a greater part of the IISH was retrieved in Germany and brought back to Amsterdam

I think it's a mistake to picture shtetl Jews as primitive countryside
illiterate ignorants. They were litterate, open minded,worked hard,were
sometimes rather wealthy.They had good and clean clothing and travelled to
big cities for making family photos and payed for them roubles not chicken.
They spoke Russian and Polish, some of them German, their mother tongue was
Yiddish. Big majority of males read and wrote Hebrew,while females read and
wrote Yiddish. They loved their names, language and culture being at the
same time open to outer world.
They paid for all these very high price in the Holocaust.
Leonid Zeliger
lzeliger@hotmail.com
Jerusalem Leonid Zeliger's comment is well taken and long overdue. My grandparents
from Skidel and Amdur would have certainly appreciated the correction.
Since nearly all shtetl Jews perished in the Holocaust, today's younger
generations never had direct contact with them and tend to fall back on the
"Fiddler on the Roof" stereotype. Not only were many of the shtetl Jews
very similar to Leonid's description, but the shtetls of Belarus and
Lithuania that I am familiar with produced, in addition to great rabbis,
many world renowned scholars, scientists, statesmen, authors and artists, in
numbers totally disproportionate to the small population of each shtetl.
There was of course poverty and deprivation, but also a rich and cultural
Jewish community life that is gone forever, and the entire world is poorer
for that. Jerry Aviram

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.

Thank you,

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 http://fcit.coedu.usf.edu/holocaust/resource/videogl.htm
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

Dear Landsleit,
After the European writers servile mission to Arafat; J. Saramago's abominable comparison of the Israeli defense operations with the Nazi murderous actions in Europe and after the Arab terrorist Passover massacre in Natanya, I dare to bring here to our Shtetl's descendants consideration a short resume upon the Time Magazine "impartiality" in our fight for life.
The Sturmer's heirs?
The Time Magazine March 25 published a disproportional pictures album representing the "Jewish murderous monster" versus the "Arab innocent victim". 850 square Inches are showing good patriotic Arabs, defending their life and property against the brutal Jewish invaders. "Arabs fighting an Israeli tank"; " Jewish soldiers moving an Arab family"; "Palestinian militants escaping Israeli tanks"; "Israeli Soldiers searching Arabs by brutal tactics"; "Palestinian Youths throwing stones on Israeli tanks" (Would any army tolerate throwing stones on an armed tank? for instance: The US army-?); "A frightened Arab boy near a blood covered wall" (Time reporters could not find any stained wall in the Jewish state; where to death educated Arab suicide bombers shed innocent blood every day); A Map with explanations of the great and rich Jewish Imperia compared to the small, single poor Arab country (the 22nd one!). All this 850 square inches of good Arabs, defending their life and property against the brutal Jewish invaders. Not a single picture of the Arab terror and pogroms on the Jewish Refugees population in the Jewish State. Our streets and roads are washed with blood. Yes, sorry, on page 24 there is one 20 sq in (2.2% of 850) picture – a weeping religious Jew in a yarmulke".
It seems that the much estimated Magazine unconsciously (and perhaps consciously) participates in the unbelievable giant complot trying to prepare the second Jewish Holocaust. (Remember Durban.) The first one was prepared and executed in Europe by the Europeans. I have been saved, when as a boy I escaped my small natal village, where 3000 Jews (Remember the New York victims number!), among them all my family, all our friends and my schoolmates. 2000 of them were murdered in one single day. The sun shined, the earth was in bloom on a beautiful spring day 60 years ago, the music was played, the local Europeans danced, the church bells ringed and the civilized beasts murdered.
Now we live, all of us-refugees (true refugees who escaping sure death left their homes forever) and our children, in our tiny promised single land. And the beasts continue their murder. The whole "civilized world" is watching, encouraging and waiting. Perhaps till we reach the number of SIX MILIONS?
With all my respects to the Time Editor and his civilized peace loving team.
M. Perlman, a true refugee from the Europe slaughter Land.

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:
www.geocities.com/vishnive www.geocities.com/biography1915 These sites have links to other sites concerning Vishnive.
More updates will follow soon.
Have a happy Passover! The address for contributions in the US is:

My great-grandparents came to New York City from Visnevho. Their names were Shiyah and Zipe Zigman. They were known as Sam and Lena Zigman. Their children were Annie, Leiser & Mayer (twins that changed their names to Louis and Max) Basche (Bessie)and Chaim, my grandfather who became Harry Sigman. The family all travelled here at different times and I have located the manifests for Bessie, Chaim and Zipe. I have so far been unable to locate the travel information for the others. I have information on each of the children's marriages and on some the decendants. I am certain that my great-grandfather had siblings but have no information on them. I am also aware of another Zigman family that travelled from Vishnevah to Lawrence, MA to "brother-in-law, Samuel Albert". Should anyone have further information on this family or their origins, please contact me at cmazzeo@si.rr.com. Thank you.

Bamesila Organization, which works to restoring Jewish communities in
Belarus, will be holding Jewish concerts March 17-24 in Belarus. Two
concerts will take place in Minsk on March 18, the first will be for the
older people and will be songs of Chazanut and in Yiddish, the second for
the young Jews of the community. The volunteers of Bamesila will visit the
towns: Molodechno, Borisov, Mohilov, Polotzk and Orsha and also there will
be concerts. In Orsha, where there is a young Jewish community developing,
there will be a three-day seminar in preparation of the Pesach holiday. The
Polotzk concert will also be an inauguration for an activity center for the
Jewish community which has recently started.

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).
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.
It appears that the rule in force at the time was that emigrating Polish citizens, upon receiving identity documents in their new homeland, were to turn in their Polish passports to the Polish Consulate at their destination. Invalidated passports were then sent by the local Polish Consulate back to the Foreign Ministry in Warsaw, where they were filed away in government archives. Some Polish Jewish emigrants to Palestine may have kept their passports, despite the regulations of the time, so if you do not find a particular name, it does not mean that individual did not emigrate. At some point, the Polish Government decided that these "Palestine passports" are Jewish historical documents and the collection was transferred to the Jewish Historical Institute. Only recently were these passports finally sorted, alphabetized and computer indexed.

Jack Braverman asked these questions about the Polish Aliyah Passport Project
<<
I have two questions. Am I corrrect in assuming that there is currently no
way to link a town and surname in order to establish whether or not an
individual is indeed a relative? Secondly, since one can't be sure that a surname is in fact a relation,
there is really no practical way--other than hit and miss--to order a
passport until the list is made searchable, no?
>> These questions reflect many of the queries I have
received since making the announcement about the project.
Although I am not inviting a deluge of queries, if you write
me privately at , I am willing to tell you if your surname
and your town correlate on the list.
We at JRI-Poland are trying to brainstorm another way of
making this cross-reference publicly possible before the
data is searchable online. To find out how one can obtain
the Excel file of the Aliyah Passport list, which would enable
you to make that cross-reference for yourself, go to:

do have so many names and places to search, I hope you will be able to support
this important project and obtain the Excel file of all passport holders for your
personal research, which you can sort by name, town of birth and town of residence. The fundraising target for this initiative is $1,800. Contributors of
$54 will be eligible to receive an Excel file with partial extracts of all
the data for all names in the index.
Contributions should be made to Jewish Records Indexing - Poland.

You are right, It is the same name. Yes they are "Leviim" if the are from the original family - some took the name later. My great grandfather was also
Mordechai Gurevitz born 1870- 1953 (son of Zalman Uri who was born c 1840 died c 1920 ). We think that Zalman Uri's father was Abraham Ilia. My great grandfather studied at the Lebadove Yeshiva with Rabbi Levik the Lebadover. later in his life he became a Chabad members as the rest of his family ( His father, Zalman Uri Gurevitz was sent to be a Shochet near Vileyka by the order of Tzemach Zedek)Mordechai was a good friend of Rabbi Yakov Landau of Kurenitz and later Bnai Brak. He studied with him and others every day in Bnai Brak in the 1940's and early 1950's
Eilat
Did your greatgrandfather's father have any brothers? Your greatgrandfather Mordechai was born about the same time as my uncle. Maybe they were named for the same person. My greatgrandfather was Yaakov Kopel Gurwitz or hurwitz and he lived in Vishnevo.My grandfather Nissan szyszko who had the cheese business in Vishnevo was his son in law.Thanks for any information.

My great great great grandfather, Nathan (Notko) Rabinovich, of Vishnevo
(c. 1801-1896?) was reported in early family correspondence to have been
a Shaalos. That was described to us as some kind of mediator or arbiter
who decided disputes between merchants or others in the town and poor
Jews. Apparently it was a kind of lay judge who decided matters
according to Jewish law when a rabbi either busy or unavailable.
We are trying to determine the kind of formal education and/or training
(e.g. Yeshiva), and other requirements (e.g. membership in local Bet
Din?) that would tell us more about the Shaalos role.
Did it require any formal rabbinic training? What specific body of
Talmudic law was involved in guiding the Shaalos' decisions, etc?
Thanks for whatever light you could shed on this.

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

Historical information. The State Archives of Vileika Region was established in 1940. Since June 1941, the activities of the Archives had been temporarily stopped by the Nazi invasion. The archives were moved to the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic.
In July 1944, the State Archives started its work again in Vileika. The same year, the Vileika region was reorganized as Molodechno region. The State Archives of Vileika Region was renamed the State Archives of Molodechno Region and was transferred to Molodechno.
In 1960, the State Archives of Molodechno Region was reorganized as the Branch of the State Archives of Minsk Region in Molodechno. In 1963, the Archives of Vileika, Volozhin, Molodechno and Myadel districts were abolished and their holdings were moved to Molodechno. In September 1996, the Branch of the State Archives of Minsk region in Molodechno was renamed as the Zonal State Archives in Molodechno.

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 Vishnevo 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 shtetls in the Vishnevo area. I would like you to send me or scan and send an attachment of any old pictures of your family from the area so I can post it on the page. thank you very much. Eilat
