The Rohatyn Yiskor Book briefly states that some 575 adult Jewish males
were suddenly arrested in the spring of 1915 as suspected German spies
and marched off for detention within Russia. They were held for some time
in Chembar (now known as Belitsky) which was in Penza Provence; then
eventually sent back as far as Ternopol where they were further detained
until 1917 until a smaller group of those who had not by then perished
were allowed to return to Rohatyn.

Seeking more details about these times and circumstances deportations
from the front lines of battle during WW I.
