Re: [Vistytis] number of inhabitants
- Bert,It says that at its peak in the 1800's there were approximately 3,000 people living there (almost half of whom were Jewish), compared to 650 in 1994. This is a relatively large number of people for, what seems to me to be such a small town. It makes me wonder if these numbers don't also include the people living in the surrounding areas.There is some interesting information at the Vishtinetz Shtetl website.Robert.----- Original Message -----From: Bert OppenheimSent: Thursday, June 26, 2003 11:09 PMSubject: Re: [Vistytis] number of inhabitantsRobert, my Vishtinetz entry in Jewishgen has some small entries regarding population. At the peak there were 1500 Jews. There is another entry lower down that will also help. The autobiography has more detail that should prove interesting.Open the attachment and you will be there.Bert----- Original Message -----From: Robert KSent: Wednesday, June 25, 2003 12:39 PMSubject: [Vistytis] number of inhabitantsIt would be interesting to know what the number of people living there at
various times has been. The numbers listed in the timeline seem to refer to the
inhabitants of the locality and not to the town itself.
