Shchuchin (Belarus) Yizkor Book – List of pictures

Two versions of the same Yizkor book exist. Both are dated 1966 and look virtually identical. The information is essentially indistinguishable but the order of three towns is changed. In one version, the Shtutchin portion is first. In the other version, Ostrina is first. The page numbers herein list the Shtutchin version first and the Ostrina version in brackets.
