LEVI BOGINSKY and SERGEANT CHOROHOV
Somewhere on the Russian Front
1939

Levi Boginsky, standing, right.


Levi, who had left his home in Szczuczyn with his family to escape the pogroms that befell his hometown, fled eastward from their new home in Bialystok further eastward into Russia before the ghetto was closed. He was quickly conscripted into the Russian army just a few weeks later and fought on the front. After a time, the Russian army wanted to place all the Polish soldiers who were in the Russian army into units to fight against the Nazis in Poland. However, Levi was placed in a munitions factory in southern Russia, where he worked until the end of the war. After the war, he settled in Stalingrad, married, had a family, and lived there for many decades before immigrating to the United States.
