Lost Treasures: The Wooden Synagogues of Eastern Europe The Lino Cuts of Bill Farran

Zarechanka, Ukraine

Yiddish Name: Zarechanka, Ukraine

Polish Name: Lanckoruń

Zarichanka was alternately known as Lanckoruń in Poland, Lyantskorun in the Russian Empire The name Lyantskorun appeared in the first half of 18th Century, when the village owners were the Lyantskoronsky Family. During the town’s liberation from the Nazis by the Soviet Army, it was renamed Zarechanka. A synagogue postcard was incorrectly attributed to the Polish town of Lanckorona. The Yiddish name, Lantzekronia and the Polish name Lanckorun, are both so similar to Lanckorona, that it is easy to see how an error could have been made.
