Kobryń Before WW II Kobryń was the closest city to Berezna and seat of the county (powiat) in which Berezna was located. In 1921 it was over twice the size of Antopol and also predominantly Jewish (66%). Nikifor occasionally traveled to Kobryń to conduct trade or business. These photos show scenes from Kobryń before World War II during the time when Nikifor Parfomuk would have visited there. Notice the language on the photos is either Russian, German, or Polish–depending upon which authority controlled the city at the time.
