A village in Borki, Kremenets Province

Translated by Thia Persoff

Folwarki village is about 6 kilometers southeast of Kremenets, on the road to Katerburg.

It is not known when Jews first settled in the village, but between the two world wars, about 20 Jewish farming families lived there. In the summer, their farms were used as agricultural training sites for groups of pioneers getting ready to immigrate to the Land of Israel.

During the Holocaust, those Jews were removed to the Kremenets ghetto. While being transferred, some of the Jews resisted, including Avraham Bat and his son Aharon, who shot at the Ukrainian policemen and killed one of them. They were shot and beheaded as a warning. The rest of Folwarki's Jews were annihilated with Jews in the Kremenets ghetto.
