A Portuguese documentary video, "Aquellas Mujeres..." ("Those Women...") directed by Matilde Teles and Verena Kael, is available at: It is about white Jewish slaves, known as "The Polish Women" or "Poland", who were transported to the Americas by pimps ("kaftens") in the late 19th C. In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil they created a mutual aid society, a synagogue, and a Jewish cemetery, Cementerio Israelita de Inhauma, thus maintaining a link to Judaism despite their way of life.

A very rough translation of the film: The young women, very poor and usually with no future, arrived from Poland, Austria, and Russia. Women were trafficked through an organization known as Zvi Migdal. They were told that the clientele might be "treif" but the money would be "kosher". Many were young women who were enticed into prostitution with the false promises of marriage when, in reality, they were forced into prostitution.

Because they were not permitted to be buried in existing Jewish cemeteries, the prostitutes raised money to purchase land and to construct what was to become a well-known cemetery, Inhauma. There are several views of the cemetery at the beginning and end of the documentary.

Eventually, they built their own synagogue on Calle Afonso Cavaicanti in Rio. The seats were of beautiful Jacaranda wood with name plates. Some were inscribed with their birth (or Hebrew??) names; others with their "professional" ones. It has since been demolished.

In 1906 they created a mutual aid society (Benevolent, Funeral and Jewish Religious Association). The Jewish prostitutes formed the first Chevra Kadisha, which was the first Jewish society in Rio.

Anti-Semitism and the Ukraine: A Documentary Film

"Nazi/Skinheads: The Holocaust by Bullets and Modern Antisemitism" in Ukraine---a full length documentary by Daniel Reynolds Riveiro, investigates the part antisemitism played during the Holocaust and as well as its role in Ukraine today.

The video, in 17 parts plus the trailer, is both riveting and upsetting: listening to the views of modern day skinheads; seeing the result of antisemitic incidents, including the vandalizing of synagogues and cemeteries, such as occurred in the Odessa and Zhytomir, listening to Vasylovitch Yarmenko, spout hate. According to the video, Yarmenko is an administrator of "MAUP" (Interegional Academy of Personnel Management), reportedly an antisemitic university,  the largest private university in Ukraine, with 50,000 students. A document, "Execution in Zhitomir", shows the extreme calculation by the Nazis in their planning the murder of the Jewish population. A schematic diagram was drawn up  in order to calculate how many individuals could fit into a ditch, based on its length, width, and height.

Please see the film for further information.

Pre-War Eastern Europe: Jewish Life--A Video

After prayers at the synagogue, children singing the Hatikvah, old spinning and weaving by hand, booksellers, dancing---JOY!

Ukraine: Pre-War Jewish Life-- A Video

Interesting views of every day people smoking, making music, marketing, carrying chickens and geese under there arms possibly hurrying home to cook them for the Sabbath....
Can anyone explain what the elderly gentleman (Who was he?? A famous rabbi???) was saying to the crowd?? (Something about Shabbos--) Was this the wedding of someone well known??

KIEV:Lukyanovsky/Lukyanivska Jewish Cemetery

According to this Russian language article, the cemetery was opened in 1894, and eventually thousands of Jews were buried in its grounds. No further burials were permitted as of 1937. Some graves were destroyed during the Nazi occupation, but further destruction was primarily done in the 1960's.

Photos are available of a few headstones as well as a pre-revolutionary map of the area.

According to the author:
#8 tombstone indicates that "Student Solomon Klimentievich Stackelberg, an innocent victim, who died from ruk (?) executioners, November 29, 1919", and remarks, "Probably Solomon died during the the time was dominated by the Kiev Volunteer Army...."

#16 was Chaim Iosifovich Gorodetsky
