This week's Yizkor book excerpt on JewishGen's Facebook page #general
Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
Some of the recent postings have been about the grim side of the story the
Yizkor books tell, so for this week, a little something different.
This excerpt (http://bit.ly/2byXQaD) is >from the Yizkor book of Brzezin
(or Brzeziny) in Poland, about 13 miles east of Lodz and about 70 miles
west of Warsaw. The Jewish population numbered almost 4,000 in 1897 when
it was still part of Russia. This chapter by Abe Rosenberg describes
another slice of shtetl life: how Jewish sports came to Brzezin.
