My mother in law has applied for some sort of compensation or pension based
on her having being in a ghetto or in an area that was persecuted by the
Germans (I am not sure which). She was living in Ostrozec, a "town" that
was in Poland prior to the war, then Russia then the Ukraine. Her
application was rejected as they had no record of any "action" in that
area. She says the Germans basically got the local Polish/Ukrainian boys
to do their dirty work.
Has anyone heard of this town or the area ? Or know of where I might find
some information about it ?
