Some of modern day Belarus, for example Vidzy, was in Poland at the time of
the WWII. As an example of the political fluidity of the area Vidzy was part
of Lithuania prior WWI. I don't have actual dates as I have not been
studying the history of the area.
I do think, though, if not already done, you should post on the Litvak &
Belarus sites. There are some very knowledgeable readers.
