My grandmother and her family escaped Odessa around the same time yours did (1920) and walked across Europe. My mother told me that her mother told her HIAS helped them (BTW, my 2x great aunt who was from Tiraspol married either a SIlberstien or SIlverstein, depending on the records. This was probably around 1880. Her name was Chaya and his name was Melech).
