Amazing photo >from the Ghetto Fighters' House regarding 7 young Skala
Residents >from 1942: Surnames: AJZNER, STOCH, ZLOCZOWER, SOFER, KUSIL

Below is the caption which appears under a photo >from the website of
the Ghetto Fighters' House in Israel, which is located at the following
link http://tinyurl.com/5ujory2 .

A group of Jewish partisans who escaped >from the Skala Podolskaya ghetto
in 1942 and joined the Kovpak partisan unit. In the photo: seven partisans
in the Cyganow Forest, in the Ukraine: Yitzhak - Misza Ajzner, Miszka
Zloczower, Jaszka Stoch, Boris Zloczower, Mendel Sofer, and Josef Kusil.

Please note however:

1) that the word "ghetto " below should not be taken literally, I have
spoken to Max Mermelstein who advised me that there was never a formal
ghetto in Skala

and

2) the Cyganow (Tzigan) Forest was in Poland just outside of Borszczow
and not in the Ukraine until after 1945 when Poland was partioned
according to the Curzon line.
