the pages of history".

The book Vladimir Livshits, “Gorki Jewish community: the pages of history” is describes the history of the Jewish Community of Gorki, Mogilewski Region, from 1643 to 2009. The economic, national, cultural, and spiritual life of the Jewish community has been analyzed in detail. The book covers the issues of education, family life, and public health services of the city Jews. Special sections are devoted to the influence of the three Russian revolutions, emigration and pogroms, social transformations during the period of industrialization, collectivization and cultural revolution in 1917-1941. The tragedy of the Jewish Community in World War II, the post-war decline of the Jewish life and its revival after 1991 have been thoroughly examined. The book contains biographies of renowned members of the Jewish community - writers, scientists, artists and public figures.

The author has gathered the material for the presented book for 40 years while engaging in studying local lore and history and founding the Museum of Belarus State Agricultural Academy and the Historical-Ethnographic Museum of Gorki, of which he was the director for 15 years. The book has been written on the basis of studying documentary archives of the National archives of Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine. The important source in writing the book has been "Pinkos", the Book of Records of the Jewish community which may be found in the library of the Jewish University in Jerusalem.

In addition to the sources mentioned above, published monographs and books on the history of Belarus in general, and history of Jews in particular have been widely used. The author has also used the Archives of the Historical-Ethnographic Museum of Gorki, as well as his own archives of memoirs and photographs of the former Jewish citizens of Gorki and the district. More than 90 percent of scientific data have been used and published for the first time.

The book is intended for general public. Comments, corrections, additions and updates will be accepted with thanks and taken into consideration when printing new editions of this book at this tel. number and email address: 04-6563925; Lwm46@mail.ru.
