I am writing a book about my grandmother's village,
Israilovka, also known as Yazer, which was located 9 km NE of
Ustinovka, 85 km south of Kirovograd and 30 km east of Brobinets. I
am writing about events that took place just before and during WWII,
including a massacre in the summer of 1942.
I am interested in locating relative who may have survived,
as well as any other surviving residents of the town. I am a
professional historian, with training in oral history, as well as
published poet, and want to tell this personal story about one
village as part of the larger story of the holocaust, and of Soviet
Jews in particular. My own family surnames are SAKHNIN, SHEVELEV,
DURKIROV, KHOUSETVISKY, ZASLOFF, LOSHKIN, but I would be very
interestedinspeaking with anyone fromt he village who may know about
the war years, Please emailme directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
