Re: Was there a port in Odessa circa 1921? #general
Dear Group,Whilst the Moving Here Project of the UK National Archive definitely refers
to Odessa as a point of departure for Britain
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.
