olshan #ukraine


Beverly Haas <bevhaas@...>
 

I had Googled the shtetl Olshan which was in Gorodishche, Cherkassy,
Kiev Gubernia. I got some very interesting history including a book
written in Yiddish by a lone survivor. I Googled the translator, Dr.
Jacob Leibman and he talks about living in Olshan in Belarus, Poland.
I am a bit confused. This all came >from one site. Any clarification
would be appreciated. Beverly Haas

Beverly,

Town in Belarus is known as Olshany at 5415 2601

To avoid confusion, you should search for towns via JewishGen Gazetteer
