Zh'uchovich Street Beit-Kneset
Beit-Kneset on Zh'uchovich Street

Sasha Galver lived on Zh'uchovich Street in Mir. He sent these photos of the Beit-Kneset that was on the same street. He said that before the Nazi's got to Mir (around 1941), his family (his father and grandfather...) and he used to go to this Beit-Kneset on Shabat and on holidays.

During the war every house on the street was burned (they were made of wood) and their owners were killed. This Beit Kneset survived (it was made of blocks). After the war, the Byellorussians used it as a workshop for sewing clothes.
