      Book video presentation (Knygos video pristatymas) Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band Toledo, OH @ Huntington Center *FULL SHOW* - Duration: SiberiankissRecords Recommended for you. My friend from Chicago was searching for his Jewish roots in Poland. He discovered that his family came from one of those small towns Jews called “shtetl”. He was 2 years old, living in America, when his father died. "Only by going to Bransk I can touch my father and understand who I am,” he told me.

      In a new self-published book, “Searching for Butsnevits: A Shtetl Tale,” Rothman sets off to find the titular shtetl, a word for a small Jewish village, of which his father would speak fondly about. After writing some 25 other books with more traditionally academic prose, Rothman’s latest publication takes on a much more personal feel.   She smiled on my side of the family as well. My grandparents, Sam (Shimon) and Rose (Rashe) Treiger are Shtetl Marriage Fairy poster children. Sam Treiger was born in Dzyamidawka and Rose Steinberg was born in the Shtetl of Shamki (pronounced by the family as Samke and as you can see in the photo below – the Shtetl is no more).

Dear FRONTLINE, I found the program to be tremendously moving. My emotions during the program ran the gamut from anger to profound sadness about "man's inhumanity to man.".

Each shtetl was a self-contained world, and each was utterly recognizable as an instance of its kind. This consistency, the patterned predictability of life, was undoubtedly part of the shtetl's strength.

But it also meant that the shtetl was a deeply conservative organism, resistant to innovation, individuality, or /5.
