Russian Translation and Photographer Stamp #belarus

Aaron Slotnik
 

On the back of a photograph affixed to a stiff paper backing is a purple ink
stamp in Russian. I think it is the stamp of the photographer and I would
like a translation of what it says. I think the larger part says "G.L.
ATLAS". Can anyone confirm this and read the smaller part above? Does this
photographer sound familiar to anyone? The picture would have been taken in
the area of Grodno, probably Dabrowa Bialostocka, in the early 1900s.

Re: odessa - a book reference #ukraine

There is a rather good book, I do not recall the author's name, called The Shores
of Refuge. It covers Jewish immigration to the US and details a lot of the
pogroms that occured in Odessa and other parts of Russia as well. I was able to
get a copy >from my local library (a huge surprise!) so most libraries should have
it. It may not answer you very specific questions, but if you are looking to get
a very good idea of what life was like this is a good read.

pogrom 1919 #ukraine

mikeand val <mikebergin@...>
 

Does anyone know of a pogram in Kiev city in 1898 approximately? My
G.Grandfather Moishe WEIL of Blessed Memory told other relatives that he
witnessed a pogrom in "downtown" Kiev when he was six years old. He said he
escaped by hiding in a doorway. His date of birth is 9 September 1892. I
don't know off-hand what the Hebrew year was.

Thank you,

I'm trying to locate a list and map of the Uyezds that used to exist
in Ukraine and their modern day counterparts, the Rayons, along with
the Guberniyas and Oblasts to which they belong. I've tried a Google
search, but have come up with too many false hits. Do any of you know
where such a list or lists exist?

<< Dears all:


I have two questions for my investigation. Perhaps somebody can help me:
I need to know if there were "pogroms" in the city of Odesa between the
years 1899 and 1908/9. (it dates approximate of my grandfather's escape
JANKL MEIER SCHOR).I need to know if in Odessa a Jewish neighborhood
existed between 1899 and 1908/9. If it is this way, I need to know if the
street PREOBRAZHENSKAYA was part of that neighborhood. >>

Descriptions of pogroms that occurred in Odessa in 1821, 1859, 1871, 1881,
and 1905 can be found at:

http://www.moria.farlep.net/vjodessa/en/pogroms.html

The one in which Ms. Sor is interested was not confined primarily in the
Moldavanka district where many poor Jews lived. This one was city-wide,
and it started in the city's center, so it most likely included
Preobrazhenskaya Street, which was one of Odessa's major streets.And yes,
the Moldavanka district still existed in 1905.

Those of you who are interested in Odessa's history should read:

Patricia Herlihy, "Odessa: A History: 1794-1914" Harvard University Press,
1986. A fuller description of the 1905 pogrom than that given on the
above website can be found on pages 304-308.

Steven J. Zipperstein, "A Cultural History, 1794-1881," Stanford
University Press, 1986

Also, the essay "Remapping Odessa" should be read in Steven J. Zipperstein,
"Imagining Russia Jewry: Memory History, Identity," University of Wisconsin
Press, 1999.

Incidentally, the name of the city is often spelled with only one "s." so
people who like to do websearches should try both spellings (Odessa, and
Odesa).

Also my websearch for "Preobrazhenskaya Street, Odessa" turned up a site
at:

http://www.artukraine.com/photoart/photstudio2.htm

which shows three charming "cabinet" postcard photographs of a pair of
young girls, a father with his daughters, and a young couple in "exotic"
costume,with the names of the photographers and their addresses displayed
on the photographs' reverse side.

Another website showed various "penny" postcard views of Odessa is at:
