Re: book about my GGGrandpa #ukraine

I suggest you check books and articles about Jewish agricultural colonies.  Their footnotes and bibliographies might indicate such a book, or it may actually have been just a chapter in a book about the colonies.

There has been quite a bit of discussion about these colonies over the years on this list.  Check the archives and you will find references to books and articles.

Subject: [] book about my GGGrandpa #ukraine
Genners: Did anyone ever hear about a book called “Nachman Petrochik”? It concerned my ancestor’s life in a Ukranian agricultural colony where beets were turned into sugar. The colony was located near Bratslav Vinnytsa Ukraine. My relative saw it in a bookstore in Chicago many years ago.Thank you. Dr. Suzanne Esserman

Newberry Library

The Newberry Library is situated on the aboriginal homelands of the Council of the Three Fires: the Odawa, Ojibwe, and Potawatomi Nations, and the Illinois Confederacy: the Peoria and Kaskaskia Nations. Many other nations including the Myaamia, Wea, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Thakiwaki, Meskwaki, Kiikaapoi, and Mascouten peoples also call this region home. Indigenous people continue to live in this area and celebrate their traditional teachings and lifeways. As a Chicago institution, it is our responsibility to acknowledge this historical context and build reciprocal relationships with the tribal nations on whose lands we are situated.
