1906 Bialystok Pogrom #poland

Today I received the Fall 2004 issue of Mishpocha, the JGS of Greater
Washington (JGSGW) Newsletter.

The cover article is titled "Diplomatic Correspondence of the United States
and Russia Related to the Jews: 1866-1906" by Suzan Wynne. The article
discusses the contents of a volume she found in National Archives in
Washington DC. Many years ago, she asked the National Archives to microfilm
the volume. She recently rediscovered the microfilm and has sent one copy
to YIVO and a second copy to the JGSGW Library.

While I cannot repeat thewhole article, I did want to let everyone in this
discussion group to knowthat the microfilm includes an entry dated September
19, 1906 that mentions the pogroms at Bialystok and Siedlice that were going
on at the time andthen a telegram detailing the terrible results.

If anyone is interested in the history of Bialystok during this period, you
might want to contact Suzan Wynne and see if you can get the appropriate
pages of the 256 page book (on microfilm).

L'shana Tovah,

Dave
