The Jewish Community of Siauliai

by Jeffrey Maynard

This is the story of the Jewish Community of Siauliai, in Lithuania, known as Shavli in Russian, Schaulen in German and Shavel or Shavl by the Jews. Siauliai is a district capital in northern Lithuania, and the second largest city in Independent Lithuania before the Second World War. It is an important road and rail junction, slightly north-east of Kelme.
