Looking for information on 1919 Slovechno Pogrom #general


Cindy Gallard <dg2286@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I would be very grateful for any leads on how I might find
information concerning a 1919 progrom in Slovechno, Ukraine. All
but two members of my Greenshpon family were murdered in this progrom.
I was told that the Jewish writer, Isak Kipnis, wrote of this event in
his book, " My Shtetl in Shlovechno". The book is written in Yiddish
and the people at YIVO very kindly looked through the book, but found
no reference to the progrom.
A search of the Web did turn up a mention that a progrom did
occur in 1919. This was found in the Ukraine Cemetery Project site.
I would be very grateful for any information.
Thank you,
Cindy Gallard
