Vitebsk Benevolent Association

(Vitebsk, Vitebsk gubernia, Latitude: 5512' Longitude: 3011')

Contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

I had asked my superior at YIVO where I volunteer as a landsmanshaft archivist why large cities such as Vitebsk [and Warsaw] are so poorly represented in our  archives.  He thought that the social bonding of the smaller shtetl was more conducive to the landsmanshaft organization.  Also in larger cities they are organized and centered around synagogues or political groups.  We leave the reader to decide for himself the answer to this puzzle. Though once providing relief and loans to its members, this landsmanshaft in the years after 1962 served as a burial society.
