This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general
Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
This week's excerpt (http://bit.ly/2bhaQkF) is >from the Yizkor book of
Molchad (Maytchet) in Belarus, a little over 100 miles southwest of Minsk.
The Jewish population of the town was 1,888 in 1900. The author of this
account, A. Ben-Shalom, had hooked up with a Russian partisan group, as he
recounts in his article, "The raid...and the meeting." He remembers it as
an unexpected opportunity for revenge for what the Germans had done in
the town, but his story takes a haunting twist.
