Novyy Yarychiv, Ukraine - Original Linocut, Color

Yiddish name: Yartchev
Previous name, country: Jaryczow Nowy, Poland

Every Wednesday was market day, and several times a year there large fairs that attracted Ukrainian and Polish farmers who came to town to buy goods: leather, metal pots, axes, pails, plows, nails, materials for shirts, dresses and ribbons. The farmers sold cows, bulls, horses, chickens, wood, many kinds of grain, vegetables, potatoes, and various fruits. Jews bought and sold and earned their livelihood from the market and the fairs. Late in the day, especially on summer days when the farmers left town and the dust from their carriages settled, one could see Jews with long black beards and side curls, dressed in long caftans or overcoats and large black velvet hats, rushing to the synagogue, study center, or small place of worship.

The Jewish settlement in was liquidated on January 15th, 1943.
