The Tarbut School and the Orphanage of Stolin

The yellow building, standing near the place where the Tarbut School used to stand, has similar architecture. On closer examination, we could not confirm that those buildings relate. Local residents pointed to the large post-office building as standing on the Tarbut School ground.

On the ground where the Orphanage used to stand, these buildings seen below now stand. A large sports complex is located across the fence, towards the river.

Further to the East from the Orphanage, just across the street from the post office, a statue of Lenin now towers. The memorial in that plaza mentions the Red Flag soldiers -- including their units -- who fell in liberating Stolin from the German Fascists, and the residents of Stolin, who died in the front while fighting for the Great Homeland. Not a word on the thousands of murdered Jews, who were the majority of the population of Stolin prior to World War II.

The Orphanage and the Tarbut School were located on David Gorodok street, the road that is named after the nearby city with that name. The old picture shows a crowded street. Nowadays, the street looks different.
