Re: searching for a relative who had a business in Rivne in 1939 #ukraine #holocaust


Just after posting this,   I went to Yad Vashem online and, sadly, found a page of testimony for Israel Brojnsztejn of Rivno, completed by the same person who provided info about Chaya Brojnztejn of Rivno, stating that Israel was born in Ostrow, was a "merchant" and married, and was murdered in the Shoah. So this ties out to the 1939 listing of Jewish businesses and the information provided by the Rovno archives regarding Chaya. 

Still, if anyone has suggestions regarding additional sources, including property records, please let me know. 

Thanks again,
