August 2004 update for Yizkor Book Project #rabbinic
August 2004 was a banner month. We added four new books, seven new
entries, and 14 updates.
In addition, we are pleased that we were able to add Polish
translations to two yizkor books: Dembitz, Poland and Zgierz,
Poland. Please read the introductions to these Polish pages as
well as the Polish translations at
< http://www2.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/debica/demp000.html > and
< http://www2.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/zgierz/zgip000.html >.
Bringing these translations to JewishGen involved a high level
of cooperation among JewishGen, the project coordinators, and
our Polish collaborators, which we hope may lead to additional
cooperative projects. And many thanks to our html staff, who
learned about htmling in Polish!
We also added another enhancement to our Romanian Pinkas HaKehillot
tables of content-- in this case a list of Hungarian place names in
Northern Translyvania, volume 2 of the Romanian Pinkasim,
Remember that all translations can be accessed >from
-Holocaust in Belarus: Katastrofia Evreev v Belorusii 1941-1944
