Re: Is there such a place as Palestine, Russia??? #galicia #russia

Under Czarist Russia and even under Stalin the Russian government was looking for a place for the Jews. They finally decided to allocate a large segment of Siberia - on the map it looks like near Irkutsk but is probably hundreds of miles away - and even renamed many towns with Yiddish names. Many Jews moved there voluntarily and many more were forcibly relocated. I don’t know what happened to the Jews but I know that many towns there still have Yiddish names. Searching for towns in Russia may be easier if you know this.
