is it possible that Korsowka (karsava) could be "krislava"....?
My gm application for naturalization shows "krislava" as her place of birth.

I tend to agree that Kraslava near Dvinsk was the name of town misspelled as
"Krislava".

Karsava (Korsovka) is in Latgale. It is about 40km north of Ludza.
A group of us visited there in 1997 with help >from the community
of Rezekne. There is a Soviet era memorial to Holocaust victims
at the Jewish cemetery.

Our guide was a local woman who recalled the Jews of Korsovka and
mentioned a remarkable escape of two survivors.

Hilda's mother was born there, which motivated our visit.
Please feel free to contact me directly.
