Memories of Solomon, son of Orchik Alperovich (cont.)
After us, there was only one Jewish family left in Kurenets Issak and
Jeniya Levin. Issak passed away in 1990 at the age of 90, and his wife moved to
Svetlogorsk to live with her sister. Before leaving the USSR and moving to
Israel, in 1989 my brother Abram and I visited Kurenets and our oldest brother
Jacob (Yankel), who lived in Molodechno and worked not far from Kurenets in
sovhoz Lyuban with Mironovich. He organized the placement of a memorial at the graves
of those who died in the Holocaust. At this visit in Kurenets we met our old
neighbor Felsher Shuberty (born in 1918). While talking to him we found out
that he was a Jew, something that we didn't know before. We lived near him from
1956 until 1975, went to school together with his children, and didn't know of
his being a Jew. So, since 1990, he is the last Jewish settler in Kurenets, he
is the one who welcomes visitors who come to Kurenets, and he is the one taking
care of the Jewish graveyard.
My brother Abram and I have lived happily with our families in Israel for 10
years already. Our brother Yacob also immigrated to Israel, but he passed away
in 1996. My other brother, Samuil, is still living in Belarus.
