In a search of the Index of Soviet Repression, I came across this reference:
Province/Oblast: Wologodzka
District/Region: Wielikoustiugski
Place where repression occurred: Poldarskij
I've tried using Jewishgen's Townfinder --to no avail. In a Google
search, it appeared that the province is now called "Vologda."
Try the “The JewishGen Communities Database”

I would appreciate any help in identifying this location and any
resources about the town's history during WWII.
