Three images to get us started. Each of the items in this column will show something about Ostropol's Jews. Each will include  physical objects created in or about Ostropol, or sent to Ostropol.


  
  




 































Does the synagogue on the upper right of this woodcut look familiar? Artist Jan Krajewski  decided to create a composite of classic Polish structures and views in the former Polish voivodship of Volyn. He made this woodcut in 1875. He felt  that  Ostropol's wooden synagogue of the 17th Century was a fitting accompaniment  to noted Polish sites in Volhynia - the Church of St Anne in Polonnoye (just called Polonnoye church); a palace of the Pruzinski family built in the 1780s in Rzesniowka in Starokonstantinov district, and the small cottage that made what he called a suburban view of Polonnoye. We don't know if he drew it from from his own capture of information at the shul or  if he saw the two horse wagon designed for passengers in front of the Ostropol synagogue. But as an image from when the shul was already over two hundred years old and still flourished, it was exciting to find!


Susan Zucker, Ostropol researcher, shared the following postcard. Addressed to Ostropol, with a letter in Yiddish, and with a photo of a couple obviously known to the recipient on the other side.  The address in Russian says "m. [mestcheko/ small town] Ostropol, Volinski Gub. "please deliver to the hands of Sonya Gedritch" How good is your Yiddish? Can you help translate the actual letter?
