Polish Border

Brest-Litovsk, which had a Jewish majority at the beginning of the 20th century and was best known for the treaty signed there by Trotsky, is one of the most important cities in Belarus. There are also traces, sometimes precarious, of Jewish life in Grodno, known for the great religious activity of Jews and Catholics, the ancient presence of Ruzhany and the Slonim synagogue dating from 1642.
