Jump to navigation Jump to search

Adshembet (Adshi-Mambet, Adshembet, Adschi-Mambet) was a village in the central part of the Crimean peninsula, district of Byten, province of Taurida, Russia. The nearest railroad station, Byuk-Onlar was seven miles (11 km) away on the southern branch of the Kursk-Sevastopol line, and the village's post office was at Kurmann-Kemelchi. The village, which comprised some 6,000 acres of arable land and had a population of 80 in 1913, was founded in 1897 on lands owned by Lustig and leased in 1900 to Mennonites. The language used was German. No information is available on its fate between and after the two world wars.
