My Grandfather was 16 when the Russians came through and destroyed his Shtetle of Knyhnicze Ukraine.
They took all the men and boys from their Shtetle as well as those of the surrounding towns to Russia
to workcamps. They took his Grandfather, a Rabbi, 61 years old, and his cousin who was 6 years old.
They made them all walk to Kiev and from there they put them on trains to the workcamps.
In 1917 they came back to Tarnow where they stayed until 1918 when they were allowed to return to their
Shtetle.
