My ggf had a cloth store in Novo georgiusk..shortly before Pesach a customer warned him of a pogrom planned by locals..he emptied out the potato cellar under the house, posted a child as a lookout and when the pogromists were spotted the family fled down the cellar & pulled the trap door shut...the pogromists drank the wine, ate the food, set fire to the house & left..my family sold whatever they had and fled to the US in 1905 jane lowenkron Foss
