This picture is the main street coming into the shtetl. Farther down this road is the shtetl of Polonnoye, home of the Toldos Yaakov Yosef.

Thanks, once again, for the pre-emptive explanation!

E-Kvetcher: Does your family come from Polonnoye?

MCAryeh: No problem :)

No, we we come from just east of Zhitomir (Korostyshiv, Tetiyv, Korostel) - about 100 miles east. I didn't know where Polonnoye was, so I googled it, and the list of Nazi victims came up right on top - which got me thinking about all the people that were killed in my family between the pogroms and the Nazis and so I decided to post the link to help us all remember.

E-Kvetcher: Ah! Another Ukrainian Jew! Shalom Aleichem. My family does not come from Polonnoye, but one more shtetl over to the west.
