Re: route from Cherkassy, Ukraine to Manchester, England #general

Ellen Slotoroff Zyroff

My father's first cousin told me that her mother told her that she (the mother, Chaike) and her younger brother (Ilya Anshul), with ship tickets/or perhaps vouchers paid for in the U.S. by their older sister (my grandmother), who was already settled for a good number of years in NJ, walked from Ukraine across Europe by night, until they reached Le Havre, the port from which their ship left on its route to the U.S. The reason (or perhaps one reason) they did it this way (also they, too, were very poor), according to my dad's cousin is that her mom and/or uncle feared danger en route by foot, since Chaike was a beautiful red-head young woman.

I've read that those who walked the long distances on their way out of Europe were known as "Fussgehers."
