Jewish Institutions - Kovno Ghetto #lithuania


Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Following my prior post about Jewish orphanages, and the one in Kaunas in
particular, several people wrote and asked about the location, etc. A
reference to Jewish institutions as of July 10, 1941 is found in the
document: "Memorandum submitted to the Lithuanian municipality of Kovno
by the Jewish committee in Kovno, concerning the suburb of Slobodka-the
planned area for the Ghetto."

The document is mentioned in the book "Surviving the Holocaust" by
Avraham Tory, Martine Gilbert, Dina Porat and Jerzy Michalowicz,
Pages 15-16.

Jewish Hospital, 3 Jakstu Street
Jewish Orphanage, 15 Fire Brigade Street
