Yesterday I replied too hastily to Burt Altman's inquiry asking about
"Berdiansh." I thought the town might be Berdichev.
Now that I've read Alexander Sharon's and Chaim Freedman's replies to Mr.
Altman, I see that I was wrong in suggesting that "Berdichev" was the town.
The name of the town Mssrs. Sharon and Freedman proposed "Berdyansk" is
phonetically a much better match, although geographically, since Mr. Altman
had also mentioned Korostyshev in that same inquiry, Berdichev seemed a
possiblity.Still I should have thought of "Berdyansk" and am cross with
myself that I didn't!
