The Victims

On September 24, 1941, Hona Boyarsky and his son Avram were still alive. All other members of their family were already in the mass graves in Alyta and Butrimantz. Hiding in haylofts, running, hunted, the father and son created a chilling document of what had happened to the Jews of the shtetl Butrimantz. The document was a 40-page letter written in Yiddish depicting the heinous events that were taking place. It ended with a list of the names of the victims.

“To my dear Leahle,” wrote Hona to his relative in Palestine. “If through some chance this letter should reach you, I must tell you how the town of Butrimantz and our family and other Jews were destroyed by the Lithuanians and the Germans….

“Alter and Noah [Hona's sons] were taken to Alyta on the 12th of August and were shot to death. Sarah and Chana [Hona's wife and daughter] were taken away on the 9th of September. Avram and I are still alive.”

Some time later (the exact date is not known) Hona and Avram were caught in the Daug region and executed. Avram was 15, his father, 53. Their letter to Leahle had ended:

“Now I will write you precisely about Butrimantz, the names of those who were shot in Alyta and those who were shot in Butrimantz. Should this letter reach you, Leahle, or someone, let the relatives know at least where their parents, brothers, sisters perished.”


After the war, the Boyarsky letter was found by a farmer in his hayloft. He forwarded it to Riva Lozansky, one of the small group of Butrimantz survivors. Although the roster of names of the victims is as complete as possible, the Boyarskys noted: “All these that we have listed were killed, except for those who went to Russia, and we do not know whether they are living or dead. More Jews were killed in Butrimantz, but we don't know their names or families.”
