At least two of the Ett siblings, David Ett and Sprinze (Sophie) were born in Torskie, a small town north of Zaleszczyki. The village never had much Jewish population and there are no Jewish people living there now. There is only one standing Jewish home.
We were fortunate to meet Mikola Deikalo and this wife Maria Ivanivna. Mikola is a history teacher and the town historian - he's written two books about village history based, somewhat, on his work in the Lviv archives. The photo below shows Mikola and Maria's neighbor, Maria, me and Mikalo.
Mikola told us that in 1900 there were only about 61 Jewish people in Torskie. Maria only recalled about 10 before World War II. She mentioned the following first names: Shlomko, Chanina, Bartko, Shaye, Ruchla, Mortko and Feibush. Feibush owned a pub near the east side entrance to the town. Ruchla, Shaye's daughter was the only Jewish person shot during the German occupation. The rest were sent to the ghetto in Tovste.
