Does anyone know when Grodno Yeshiva was shut ...
Grodno was in the Russian occupied part of Poland and was not occupied by the
Germans until after June 21, 1941. You do not state where his home town was -
in which partof Poland , the German western part or Russian eastern part. If
Sokolka was in the German occupied zone, he would have been unable to return and
presumably celebrated his bar-mitzvah in Grodno during the 20 months remaining
between the two invasions.
