Irshava Family Photos

To be inclusive, we contacted all of the Irshava researchers with an e-mail address listed in JewishGen (as of 07 November 2011). We asked each person contacted for family photographs or anything else to make the Irshava shtetl web pages in JewishGen's KehilaLinks more interesting for all current and future researchers. Our sincere appreciation is expressed to all who responded.

Below, you will find photos of families that once lived in Irshava. In most cases, the photos you see survived the Holocaust only because they were mailed to relatives in the United States and elsewhere.

If you have any family photos of the Jewish families from Irshava,
