Hope this shows Lida, which is in Belarus (literally - White Russia, I think).
Less than 200 miles to the north is Vilnius, Lithuania (formerly Wilno, Poland).
200 miles NW is KAUNAS Lithuania
200 +/- miles SW is Bialystok, Poland and Grodno, Belarus
Less than 50 miles SE is Navahrudak, Belarus, once part of Poland
200 miles to east is Minsk, Belarus
Ivye is about (guessing 15-30 miles) Lida
And at one time this was part of Poland, part of Russia and there were Tatars and, Jewish communities in Ivje and Vilnius
