How close do you think you are?

Whilst modern day history books tell us that Polotsk is the geographical centre of the world, the Jewish history surrounding Polotsk is immense. Though the West knows little about Belarus as a country, many Jewish people can probably trace their family roots back to within 200 miles of Polotsk.

We are setting up an initiative for Jewish children to trace their family roots back. To discover what their distant relatives did for a living? Were there Rabbi's and scholars in the family? Were there any skeleton's in the closet? And for the person who can trace their roots closest to Polotsk, a return trip to their home town awaits.
