My father has often mentioned a story told to him by his uncle that his
family came >from a town where Russian Mujiks all converted to Judaism
about 250+ years ago. When the Pogroms started, they had to flee and
ended up in the area of Szatmar (Hungarian name) or Satu Mare (Romanian
name.) This is in Transylvania about 300kms Norh West of Bucharest or
about 300kms East of Budapest. Does anyone know of this or similar
incidents?
