Pinkas Hakehillot Lita: Podzelva


The Jews knew this shtetl as Pazelva in Yiddish (Podzelva in Hebrew). Zelva is 13 miles East of the district capitol of Vilkomir (Ukmerge) in Lithuania. This is a Zelva residents list of Jews compiled by a Menachem (Mendel) Charit of Israel. Mr. Charit escaped Pazelva a few days before the Nazis entered. Names with an asterisk indicate persons known to have escaped or those who emigrated sometime in the 1930s. All others were lost in the Shoah.
