Hello Nancy,

this village still exists in Ukraine, it calls Wyazovets' located in
Chervonoarmiysk (former Pulin) district of Zhitomyr oblast' (administrative
Until 1937 it called Viderne (Viderno).

I've been to Wyazovets' in 2004 (my parents live nearby), we were looking
for Schulz ancestors.

In the book Rehabilitated by History (list of people who suffered from
Stalin's terror and repressions, opened secret archives data) there are a
lot of Witzke from Wyazovets that means a lot of relatives of the repressed
could lived there even after fearful 1937-1938 (see pages 168-169
http://www.reabit.org.ua/files/store/Zhitom.2.pdf, Віцке). For example, here
are 2 persons from this list: Witzke Adolf Danylovich (patronymic), born in
1881 and Witzke Rudolf Adolfovich born in 1917 in Wyazovets. There are also
other Witzke from different villages/colonies of Pulin district.

Please write to me if you find this info useful and will need any other
infor or help with reading Russian/Ukrainian.
