We are pleased to present another in our series of articles on the history of Belarussian Jewry by Dr. Leonid Smilovitsky. The article below is reprinted from the journal Shvut , Studies in Russian and East European Jewish History and Culture (Vol. 12, No. 28, 2004-5, pp. 47-66. ). The paper was first published by The Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Research Center of Tel Aviv University and The Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.


It deals with the relatively unknown role of Jews in the Belarussian police after the liberation of Belarus from the Nazis in July 1944.

We thank Dr. Smilovitsky and the publishers for permission to reprint this article.
