    You should change the phrase “Russian Jews” to “Ukrainian Jews.” Carpatho-Ukraine is the Carpathian region of Ukraine. It is not Russia, duh.

    Marta:

    Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union at the time—and the images were filed with “Russian” photos at the US Holocaust museum website. That’s why I had posted them generically under “Russia.”

    But you are right, and I fixed the titles.

    I appreciate the correction.
