Members of the Volpa community
on the eve of World War II

(Volpa, Grodno uezd, Grodno gubernia, Latitude: 5322' Longitude: 2422')

 by Mr. Menachem Goldin and Mrs. Miriam Ludzin
contributed by Avi Ariav

This list is the translation of the original Hebrew list, which was prepared by Mr. Menachem Goldin and Mrs. Miriam Ludzin. They both were born and grew up in Volpa, but were fortunate to leave the village before the war began.  They found each other in Israel.  In 1945, as they realized that there is no other survivors from Volpa, they prepared this list which is the best they could memorize of the Volpa community as they left it, in the eve of WWII.  The list includes the Father's name of each family, and it is assumed to be arranged the same way the houses in the village are arranged, therefore the same family name can be found several times in the list.  Only one person survived the Holocaust in Volpa.  This might not be the full list of the victims, but it is the only one currently existing. Visit http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/volpa/volpa-main.html to see the original (Hebrew) of this list.
