This blog is the culmination of a long search for information about the 1905 Odessa pogrom – about who died in the pogrom, where they lived and what their lives might have been like. The Russian pogroms against the Jews occurred in a time when people kept silent about such things so there are no stories and very few facts about those who died. The silence itself affected the families for generations. The blog began as a home for a list of 300 Jews in the Odessa rabbinical death records, which have rarely been accessed in the Odessa archives and never appeared online before. It then developed as a place to imagine the lives of the people in Odessa in 1905 who were caught up in the pogrom.
