Yizkor Book Project, October 2014


As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project which has reached this lofty goal is:  Klobuck, Poland (The Book of Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel.

During October,  ten new entries were added from the Pinkas Hakehillot  Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the  Yad Vashem museum in Israel published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot  (community encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such, these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating any of the articles from  these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.
