Stonin, Poland? Are you sure?

Could it be that you meant Stolin, Belarus? It is 35 miles east-southeast of Pinsk, and in the Polish-Soviet War (1919-1921), it was incorporated into Poland, and remained in Poland until taken by the USSR in World War II. Prior to the Holocaust, it was a very well known Jewish community (about 3,000) and a center of hasidism.
