Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Savran, Ukraine Pogrom #ukraine

Happy New Year, Ukraine SIGers-

My grandmother (surname: BROITMAN) was born in Savran, Ukraine
somewhere between 1918 and 1920. The family story is they left Savran
after a pogrom in which my grandmother was hidden in an oven. An
employee of my greatgrandfather--a lumber merchant--helped them get to
the Romanian border, where they lived for a few years before
immigrating to New York via Toronto.

My question to the group: where could I find information about
specific pogroms in this area/timeframe to put some context on the
story, and perhaps help narrow down some likely dates?

Any help/pointers would be appreciated-
