Kamenka History


Kamionka was the name of the village until 1939  when it belonged to Byalistok region, Poland. Before the Holocaust, Kamenka, as it is now called, was a shtetl with Jewish religious life; today there is not even one Jew left.

In 1882, the population of the village was 411 people, of whom 245, or 59.6%, were Jews; by 1921, the population increased to 569 people, of whom 326, 57.3%, were Jews.

Kamenka is on the border between Grodno and Lida, in Grodno Region, Belarus. During the second – half of the sixteenth century, Kamenka was a Mayontek — a private estate. On a smaller scale, the village is located between Skidel and Shchuchin.
