Come to the
28th IAJGS International Conference
on Jewish Genealogy
Chicago August 17-22, 2008 www.chicago2008.org
Came across something which said my Grandparents "suffered in the
Pale and the Belachowitz"
Would be grateful if someone could explain what or who is the Belachowitz.
The Balakhovtsy were White Russian gangs according to David Goldman,
professional translator. He translated the following written by my
grandfather's brother, Mihchel Goldsholl:
"It is impossible to describe everything, tears are flowing
from my eyes when I write you now...... 25 martyrs were killed
in their prime by the Balakhovtsy. Old and young .... there was not
a single home where someone hadn't died."
If you wish, you can read about the event in the translated
Yizkor book at
The section is titled
My Town Glusha
by Berl Greenberg
Translated by Selwyn Rose
Please be forewarned that this is horrendous to read about.
My uncle's letter is even more difficult to read.
