Looking for location of Kutuz Brezza. #general


Rita
 

I have just made contact with a possible relative in UK.
She tells me that she has a photo of her grandparents with the
location Kutuz Brezza written on the back.
I have the ship's manifest for when her grandmother & children arrived
in NY & the last residence is shown as K.Bercza. These are obviously
both the same place but what place?

Can anyone please enlighten me. These people are listed as Russian.

Thank you for your help

Dear Rita,

The location is most likely Kartuz Bereza (Byaroza today) also known as
Bereza Kartuska. There is much on this town where my grandfather
David Glazer (b. Galosshoff) came >from and you can find it on
http://www.stevemorse.org Bereza is located in Pruzhany District of
Grodno gubernia, not far >from the eastern Polish Border in what is now
Belarus.

You will find on Steve's website a map >from the 1993 KB Memorial Book
Which lists family members by houses. Also, pictures of Kartuz Bereza
and other items. You can also check on CPSA (Children of Pruzhany
& Surrounding Areas for information on Bereza.

Also, check Jewishgen JGFF for people who have family >from there.

Rita,

Town is known in Polish as Bereza Kartuska in Pruzany district, currently
known as Byaroza in Belarus at 5232N 2459E,
Seat of the large Jewish community and Polish concentration camp during the
interwar period.
