Bethlehemites in Kiev, early 1900’s
Contributed by Kathy Kenny on 20.05.2009:
Seeking information on the lives of Bethlehemites in Kiev (former Russian Empire, now Ukraine) in the years before WWI for a story/screenplay on the life of my grandmother, Katrina Saade. My great grandparents, Abdullah and Miriam Saade, fled around 1913, leaving behind their business, home and possesions. But I am unsure about what circumstances might have caused their abrupt departure. If you have family stories or historical information, please contact me at email@example.com.
