I am searching for ANY information about Jewish communities in Swietajno and Szymanki in the time of before 1920. Those are the places where where my great grandparents are coming from.
Then this was Prussia (one of the villages was called: Klein Schiemanen) in the district of Ortelsburg. From Ortelsburg I am in contact with a man that now lives in Herzeliyah. He told me his survival story. He says, he was the only Jew that survived from this town. He was 6 years old then.
A very sad story!
Well - but my great grandparents where from the country-side, not from the town.
Who knows something about Jewish histories of those two villages?
