A short history of Kryzhopol, Ukraine (in Russian) by Alexander Vishnevetsky (Александр Вишневецкий).

Alexander Vishnevetsky, of Jerusalem, Israel, has produced a short history of Kryzhopol, Ukraine, and other towns in the regions.  Mr. Vishnevetsky was in the ghetto in the town Chechelnik in the Vinnitsa region during World War Two. After the war, he graduated from the Tashkent Institute of Communications, with a Ph.D. Dissertation. He taught at the Institute of Communications, and served as an adviser at the Israeli embassy. Mr. Vishnevetsky has lived in Israel since 2004. He has published articles in the Russian language press and does the work in the bureau of the Public Association "The Israeli survivors of concentration camps and ghettos."

Mr. Vishnevetsky has shared the original text of this history of Kryzhopol in its original language in Russian. If you wish to contact Mr. Vishnevetsky, please contact me at and I will contact him for you.


The history of Kryzhopil', by Alexander Vishnevetsky, is being translated into English and will be posted once it is available.
