Yizkor Book Project, April 2018 #bessarabia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


I am always impressed and encouraged to see progress being made in our
various translation projects. Some of the progress is small and some
is more significant but all bring these projects closer and closer to
their ultimate aim of completely translating the Yizkor Books and
placing the translations online for the benefit of many.

We are so fortunate to have a number of dedicated people who do all
the work behind the scenes of the Yizkor Book Project. Be it
encouraging funding, being in contact with our professional
translators or seeking out the assistance of volunteer translators to
help advance the projects. Without these wonderful people, I would
have nothing to report and believe me, the activities of last month do
provide me with a great deal to report.

Something important to report, for instance, were a number of new
books have been published last month through the auspices of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project. The books that came out in April were
firstly, for Karelichy, Belarus - "Korelitz: The Life and Destruction
of a Jewish Community" and, secondly, "Pan Kapitan of Jordanow",
dealing with the rescue of Jewish children during the Holocaust period
by Yeshayahu Drucker, AKA "Pan Kapitan". A link leading to the details
of these and the other published books may be found at the end of this

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in April.
