The Yizkor-Books-In-Print project now has 22 books in English available for
purchase, including hard-cover versions of Yizkor books >from these towns:
Ostrow Mazowiecka, Poland
These are translations of books originally published in Yiddish and Hebrew
in the 1950s and 1960s by survivors and former residents of these towns and
give an excellent picture of the environment our families came from.
In addition we have published 3 books on LIthuanian Jewish Communities
containing histories and information on 102 Litvak communities by the noted
Litvak historian Josef Rosin.
Further we have published two memoirs dealing with Czestochowa Poland:
"Flight to Survival" and "The Maple Tree Behind the Barbed Wire." Both
fascinating personal memoirs worth reading.
Details on ordering our books can be found on
This project is part of the Yizkor Books Project of JewishGen. We publish
books that are fully translated by the Yizkor Books project. We publish
the books at as low a price as possible, so as to be a service to the
Jewish community in retaining the history of our ancestral towns in Europe.
All work is done by volunteers.
We are looking for volunteers who can help with publicity to make our
project more widely known. Please contact me if you can and will help.
Watch for books on these towns in the near future:
Bacu, Iasi and Podu Iloaiei, Romania
Lyubtch and Delyatich, Belarus
Osiek and Novy Zmigrod, Poland
