This is a question that I've been wondering about.
Since I began reading about Jewish life
in Eastern Europe. The word komisar and variations
of it come up.
I don't believe it's an english word.
I think it maybe russian but I am not sure.
Can someone tell me what it means?
My grandmother's maiden name was Komisar and her father
was >from Slutsk. He spoke fluent Russian, Yiddish, and English.
I was wondering how his last name could be related to the meaning of that word.
Hope someone can help.
