Re: Searching for my mothers lost sister from Belaya Tzerkov Ukraine: Chaya Gohfeld #ukraine

Yad Vashem's Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names (https://yvng.yadvashem.orgincludes a Page of Testimony for David Gokhfeld from Belaya Tserkov, son of Moisey. Possibly there's a family connection. 

The good news: the Page was written in 2016, so the submitter, Bronislava Bank Gokhfeld (or Gokhfeld Bank?), may well be alive. Some challenges: she's in Moscow and wrote the Page (attached) in Russian. 

The Page includes Bronislava's address. If someone translates that for you, you might try writing her.
