Yiskor & Remembrances


Domachevo: An Eastern European Shtetel by Paul Lustgarten

    Paul Lustgarten lived in Domachevo until March 1938.  Read his recollections of the town at that time in the PDF file linked above.

    In April 2006, Mr Lustgarten visited Domachevo with several other people and discussed his recollections of the town and events of World War II with some of the people still living there.  A 52-minute video was recorded during that visit, in which Mr Lustgarten spoke in Spanish and English with the Russian-speaking Domachevo residents, while an interpreter translated between English and Russian.

    The following links provide download of the video in one very large Windows Media Video (.WMV) file or in three smaller .WMV files that present the same material in lower video quality.  It is best to download a file completely before beginning to view it.  The file with the complete video in higher video quality may take two to three hours to download, depending on the speed of your Internet connection.
