Yizkor Book Project, July 2014 #courland #latvia

Shalom,

I am pleased to note that in July the Yizkor book Project saw the completion
of no fewer than 3 projects, bringing the number of our finalized projects
to the outstanding milestone of one hundred such projects.

The projects that were completed in July were:

- Kamyanyets, Belarus (The People Who Lived Among Us) - prepared and
submitted by Sherwin Sokolov
- Serock, Poland (The book of Serock) - coordinated by Sandra Krisch and
Dorothy Lipsky
- Sierpc, Poland (The Community of Sierpc; Memorial Book) - coordinated by
Howard Orenstein and Israel H. Mida

To say that the work of these people is remarkable would be rather an
understatement and my sincere thanks go out to them for their dedication
and persistence coordinating these projects. I hope that their success will
encourage the coordinators of the many other projects that we are running,
to press on with their particular project, leading it through to its
successful completion.

Each of our Yizkor Book projects, like any endeavor, begins with a few small
steps and this past month, the first "footprint" of the Soklowa Podlaski
Yizkor Book Project was placed online. In the near future, a Translations
Fund will be set up for it and will appear with our other 75 funds already
appearing. These funds allow you to help support these important projects -
every donation is a small (or large) step towards seeing more and more of
the translations appear online.

Now to facts and figures for July.
