1932 LaGrange Daily News declares Simon Struletz "City's Unluckiest Man" when home burns, dynamite explodes and car burns all in a short period of time.
Simon Struletz, born in Byelorussia in 1884, moved to New York City in 1910 before permanently settling in LaGrange shortly afterward. He operated several businesses, such as a retail shoe store and a scrap metal supply company.
The Soviet republic, Socialist Soviet Republic of Byelorussia, in the lands of Belarus was declared on 1 January 1919, but it took a few years to define its status. Byelorussia was also one of several Soviet Republics occupied by Nazi Germany during World War II. The end of the Soviet Republic occurred in 1991 and the country was later renamed into the current Republic of Belarus.
