The Vicinity

The people of Stolin, together with residents of neighboring areas, formed a larger community that worked, celebrated and worshiped together. Extended families would often live in different towns and villages but were able to retain strong relationships that reinforced ties to nearby shtetls.

Located in Polesia, an area characterized by its swampy environs, the region in and around Stolin was typical of the Pale of Settlement. The first known settlement of Jews in the area was over 400 years ago when it was ruled by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In 1793, the combined efforts of Prussia, Austria and Russia led to the Second Partition of Poland, placing Stolin under Russian rule for the first time. In 1917, the Soviet Union unseated the Russian Empire; and in 1921 following WWI, Soviet control of Stolin was lost to a newly reconstituted Poland. Poland continued to rule Stolin and the vicinity until 1939, the beginning of WWII.
