Borisovers in Israel
Haim Laskov was chief of Staff of the IDF
Alexander Rosenbloom was born in Borisov in 1925 and devoted much effort to memorializing the Jewish community of Borisov. He moved to Ariel, Israel, in 1996 and published a memoir of Borisov in Russian called _Pamyat na krovi_ [Memory sealed in blood]. The lists of Borisov holocaust victims on the WWII and Soviet records portion of this site are translated from _Pamyat na krovi_. A review of _Pamyat na krovi_ and discussion of his other work appears here. He also wrote several anecdotes about Borisov for inclusion on the Israeli My Shtetl website. In addition he collected antique picture postcards of Borisov some of which can be seen here. I do not know if he is still alive. His son Felix has recently updated the website of Alexander Rosenbloom's memoirs of Borisov.
The My Shtetl website also includes other anecdotes from Borisovers in Israel. Some are translated into English. Others are only in Russian.
