Belarus SIG #Belarus Moshe and Paula from Orla, Poland Update #belarus
My research on Moshe and Paula, both >from Orla, Poland took a dramatically turn
this week, with updates >from both Canada and South Africa.
The narrative originated in Orla and ended suddenly in South Africa.
However, my research started 80 years later in Australia and has taken me to
Poland, Belarus, the Baltics, Israel, the UK, Germany, South Africa and North
I share my experiences about the challenges of travelling and researching in
different archives and libraries. Top of the list was visiting Belarus and the
State Archives in Grodno.
This led me to start writing and managing KehilaLinks as a volunteer, beginning
with the Orla KehilaLink and now extending to cities as diverse as Shanghai,
Berlin, Kimberley and Perth, 24 in all:
