With the New Year just around the corner, it seems good time to reflect on our achievements - that of the Yizkor Book Project - over the past year.
During the last year we have added 71 new books, 83 new entries and updated an average of 20 existing projects each month. These may be just "dry" statistics but they do reflect on the high activity over the past year and it is my hope that we will continue to grow even more this coming year.
As far as the Yizkor Book Project itself goes, during this last month we have added these 8 new projects:
- Belchatow, Poland (Belchatow: Publication of the Society of the Residents of Belchatow in Argentina)
Added 2 new entries:
We have continued to update 22 of our existing projects:
- Rafalovka, Ukraine (Memorial book for the towns of Old Rafalowka, New Rafalowka, Olizarka, Zoludzk and vicinity)
Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been flagged here to make it easy to find them.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many, many volunteers, translators and coordinators working on the Yizkor Book Project and wish you all a very sweet and happy New Year.
Shana Tova Umetuka,
Yizkor Book Project Manager
