About Shimon(Simon) Olin
What ever happened to my Great Uncle Shimon/Simon Olin- last record he was living in Berdichev in on May 31st, 1930 according to my great Baba Sure's (his mother's ship record when she arrived in Canada). The document confirms that she lists she her son Shimon/Simon Olin as her NOK in Berdichev, Russia in 1930. 80 years later I am asking the question what happened to Shimon after 1930. I think about the Holocaust and wonder did he live till then, was he one of the 1/3 of the Jewish population that escaped before the Natzi occupation of Berdichev in 1941 or did he perish in the Holocaust. I have heard no oral history about him. For the horrendous history of Berdichev during the Holocaust see : http://www.berdichev.org/holocaust.html Rosalie Lazar Nov 19,2010.
