Jews deported to Siberia from Lithuania #lithuania


Audrey Levin
 

I am looking for a list of Jewish Lithuanians deported by the Russians from June 1940-41 to Siberia. The Jews who were deported were considered capitalists. So anyone prosperous and who owned a business was probably in this category.
There were about 7000 Jews sent to the labor camps (gulags). The main area they were sent to was Altai. 
 
Thanks,
Audrey Levin

Hi Audrey,

In 1999, the Genocide & Resistance Research Center of Lithuania published the names and other information of about 30,000 Lithuanians repressed during the Soviet occupation, gathered from various sources. Of these, about 2600 were Jewish. Subsequently, Galina Zhirikova of the Lithuanian Holocaust Museum extracted the Jewish entries into a separate list, which is available online, in Lithuanian, at http://media.search.lt/getfile.php?OID=265380&FID=774974. LitvakSIG, with permission, has translated the list of repressed Jews and added it to the All-Lithuania Database, which is free to all (search results for repressed Jews will be found under the Revision List category). Anyone who is a current donor to LitvakSIG can access the entire translated list, as an excel spreadsheet, through their login on the LitvakSIG website.

Hello Audrey

I'm researching the families Kotovski and Boruchovich. I'd be very grateful if you could let me know if these names turn up in anything that's sent to you.
Good luck!
