History of Betar in Poland/Belarus #belarus


Celia Haupt
 

Hello all

I am interested in finding out more about the history of Betar in
Poland - specifically in the region of Drohiczyn. My grandmother's
autograph book contains some interesting inscriptions that lead me to
believe that she was involved in Betar in Poland in the early 1930's.

I would like to find out if there are any records remaining >from Betar
groups in the areas around Pinsk, Motol, Pruzany, Linov and various
other places. These were in Poland between the two wars, but are now
in Belarus. Ideally, I would love to track down membership list or
dates and locations of youth camps organised in the areas mentioned
that could possibly tie in with the dates of the inscriptions in the
autograph book.

The autograph book entries that have prompted this investigation can
be found on Viewmate at
