Soviet Military Records for Ostropol, Lyubar, and Starokonstantinov - Part Two Lyubar
by Deborah Glassman, copyright 2018


Most records are made available by hardworking volunteers. Pamyat Naroda (Memory of the People) is such a site. https://pamyat-naroda.ru. It is dedicated to preserving the memory of soldiers from all walks of Soviet life in World War II.


It is a Russian language Database of Soviet Military servicemen and women who were killed, wounded, lost, buried in military cemeteries, or received military awards in World War II. The site has a simple search feature in Russian. You can open up Google Translate and use its virtual Russian keyboard to type in surnames and towns of birth. It does have an English page, but even their you need to enter the names and towns in Cyrillic letters. Millions of names have been added and it continues to grow. It is a free site.


When I put in ďOstropol,Ē the frequently updated site quickly gave me eleven people from that place, three appear to be Jews and seven appear to be Russian and Ukrainian Christians. I suspect that many more are entered in that database with the key fact of their Ostropol birth currently missing. This means that currently they can be found by name, but not by birth place. For instance, I just searched by a family name that I knew had soldiers in the Soviet Army, and it came up with Ostropol included as a subsidiary birth place but doesn't appear when you just check for Ostropol. I have continued adding these new finds (see them at my website https://jewishfamiliesofostropol.com/soviet-military but expect that new additions will be made for some time to come. When I look up by surname, lots of review needs to be done. There were over 500 individuals listed for the surname BURD. Most were not from Ostropol, but they all need to be inspected.


I wasnít ready to take on the 800 listings for a Lyubar birth place, and wanted to narrow it down to Jews. So I have cheated and have begun the search process by looking for Jewish given names which also had a Lyubar birth place. This means that many more will be found as we go forward. The first thirty-eight are just to get you started and to prime the pump so Lyubarers can tell me what other families to look for.


I have made the information very simple to use. You have a given name and surname. You are told if a fatherís name is present, so you can decide if this is a record you want to order for 14.00 from me, or if perhaps you want to go to the database and search for it yourself. I tell if you if there is rank or unit information present and if they are noted to have received any awards. But one of the most valuable pieces of information, is freely given here. The call-up area! What does a call up region in the Russian interior, or one of the nations like Uzbek SSR or Kazakh SSR tell you? That they, or their family if they had been a minor, had moved, been relocated, been evacuated, or been assigned by the Soviet government to an area other than Lyubar. Some of the regions far inland in the Russian interior, definitely would warrant a search for evacuation records. The State Archives for that region would have such records and more. Another major city like Leningrad, Kharkov, or such, might tell you that they or their family had moved for jobs or education previous to the call-up date. Many folks moved from the quiet Ostropol and Lyubar areas to the now open cities of Moscow, Leningrad, and all of the Ukrainian industrial towns in the 1920s and 1930s.

There were over 800 listings for Lyubar. There were almost 1100 for Starokonstantinov. I donít know what portion were Jews and what portion Christians. Jews were richly represented. I am part way through the large number of soldiers from Lyubar, though they are not yet indexed and ready to share. I have done a small amount of Starokonstantinov. This does not count searches of individual surnames where we may find additional Lyubarers. Some of the few I ran for Ostropol had thousands of files to sort through for each surname.


Order any person on the list for just $14.00 for a complete record. Use the contact form from anywhere on my website https://jewishfamiliesofostropol.com and tell me their name and the list you saw them on. If they are not on the list below, and you know their given name and surname and that they were born in Lyubar, I can do a search for you for the same $14.00. If you just have a surname and Lyubar, I will give you an individual price depending on the size of that search.
