VOZNESENSK, city in Nikolayev oblast, Ukraine. The Jewish settlement in 
Voznesensk was founded during the first half of the 19th century by several of 
the numerous Jews who migrated from northwestern Russia to "New Russia" 
(Ukraine). There were 1,249 Jews in Voznesensk in 1864; 5,932 in 1897; and by 
1926 the 5,116 Jews formed 23.7% of the total population. The Jews of 
Voznesensk suffered severely during the Russian Civil War (191820) and were 
exterminated when the Germans occupied the town during World War II. In 1959 
there were again Jews in Voznesensk (900, forming about 3% of the population).
