The Holocaust in Belarus

Peter Duffy donated translations of all the references to Lida and the Lida area in the book.  Here are those bits, until the entire sections have been translated:

page 50: searching for rescue
In May 1942, citizen Fishel Belobrod was injured in Lida and was pushed into a pit where he was left for dead.
page 84:  Difference in status between Jewish & non-Jewish children
Withn a year after the start of the war, study groups were active in Minsk, Baranovichi, Borisko, Vileyka, Gantzevichy, Gluboko, Lida, Novogrudok, Slutsk, and Slonim, and were under the supervision of the German civilian administration.
