Names of Members of the Teleneshty Community

who are no longer alive

(in alphabetical order)

Translated by Jerrold Landau

This list is not complete. It includes names of those who died or who were killed. We requested information, and we received information from their families in Israel or the Diaspora who transmitted the names to us. Many names, in particular of those who were killed in the Holocaust, did not make it to this list. We regret that their names did not make it into this memorial book.

In the event of errors in the names, we request the forgiveness of the family members.

* ....They killed Moshe Batoshanski (the largest fancy goods merchant in the town), and buried him in the vineyard of the Fisher brothers.

* ... Mani Rafaelovitch and Hersh Kalechnik (Burman), were murdered by a local youth, from the Teleneshty village .

* ... They tied Shmuel Rashkover to the tail of a horse dragged him through the streets of the town.


* ... In 1944, Mordechai Mechvitz returned to Teleneshty, and the gentiles told him that his parents Moshe Leib and Sara were killed and buried in Koropcheni village.

* ... In 1944, with the efforts of Avraham Lachs, Moshe Soroker, Aaron Plosk and Zeev Lisgug, a communal grave was opened near Ineshty, and they brought the bones of the Jews, residents of Teleneshty who were mercilessly killed. They were brought to rest in a Jewish grave in the local cemetery. Next to them were buried the martyrs of Krasnosheni village (a village near Teleneshty, where nearly the entire Jewish population was murdered and pillaged).

* Reb Aaron David Shochet
