[5108] In 1905, Louis' occupation is given as "Clothier" on his son Jehial's (Ted's) birth certificate. The surname Raffiewitz was shortened by immigration authorities when they entered the United States.

[5109] Sarah's family left Russia around 1892 because of an impending pogrom. Pogrom is a Russian word designating an attack, accompanied by destruction, the looting of property, murder, and rape, perpetrated by one section of the population against another. The attacks were carried out in Russia, mainly by the Christian population against the Jews between 1881 and 1921, while the civil and military authorities remained neutral and occasionally provided their cover, and even open support. Nezhin is about 120km. north east of Kiev, on the line linking it with Konotop and Kursk. The town of Nezhin is located in the Chernigov province of Ukraine. Jews first settled in Nezhin, after the partition of Poland, at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The town became a center for the Habad Hasidim of Ukraine. In 1847, 1,299 Jews were registered in the community. In 1897 there were 7,361 Jews (24% of the total population.) The wave of pogroms that overtook Russian Jewry in 1881 and 1905 severely affected the Jews of Nezhin. Also, in the spring of 1918, pogroms were carried out in the district by the Red Army during its retreat from the Germans. During the German occupation of WWII, all Jews except those who succeeded in escaping from the town were exterminated. In 1959 there were 1400 Jews in Nezhin (3% of the town's population.) Today, the current population of Nezhin is 80,000. The Jewish population is almost 300 families. -- From "Our Ancestral Towns, Sosnitza and Nezhin" (October 2002) http://www.ourfamilystory.net/chazanov/chazanov_pages/ANCESTRA/Sosnitza.htm#nezhin
