Re: Info Korsovka Karsava #latvia

Karsava (Korsovka) is in Latgale. It is about 40km north of Ludza.
A group of us visited there in 1997 with help >from the community
of Rezekne. There is a Soviet era memorial to Holocaust victims
at the Jewish cemetery.

Our guide was a local woman who recalled the Jews of Korsovka and
mentioned a remarkable escape of two survivors.

Hilda's mother was born there, which motivated our visit.
Please feel free to contact me directly.

...is it possible that Korsowka (karsava) could be "krislava"....?
My gm application for naturalization shows "krislava" as her place
of birth. ...
