Colonists Abandan Kalinindorf Region

A mass movement of Jewish colonists from the Kalinindorf region in the Ukraine to their former homes in the towns and villages, is reported here. It is estimated that about 400 families already have deserted the Kalinindorf region because of poor living conditions there.

This situation is in contrast to that reported by Jewish colonists in the Crimea, who in letters to their old homes have expressed pleasure with conditions there and have urged other members of their families to join them.
