Dear Group,

I am trying to help a friend validate a story that she heard >from her
family members. Does anyone know if there was a port in Odessa, Russia where
one could take a ship to England circa 1921? If so, are there any online
sources for these ships? Are there any online sources for passengers who
arrived in England during this time period?
Whilst the Moving Here Project of the UK National Archive definitely refers
to Odessa as a point of departure for Britain
http://www.movinghere.org.uk/galleries/histories/jewish/journeys/journeys.htm
it is unlikely that such a journey would have taken place in 1921.

http://www.encyclopedia.com/html/section/OdessUkr_History.asp records that
Odessa was taken over by the Red Army in 1920.

On the other hand http://www.bh.org.il/Exhibitions/Odessa/community.asp does
say that a group of authors led by Bialik did leave Odessa for
Constantinople in June 1921.
