Yizkor Book Project, April 2011 #scandinavia


Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It seems to me to be significant that this monthly report comes in
conjunction with Yom HaShoa [Holocaust Day] which is commemorated
this coming Monday. The Yizkor Book Project continues, throughout
the year, to ensure that our loved ones and communities that were
destroyed in the Holocaust are not forgotten. The wide scope of
the project, as shown in this report, is certainly testimony to
this fact.

Now, if it so happens that the community close to your heart
doesn't appear in our Translations Index
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html
or the existing translation is only partial, and you feel you can
help organizing or translating or financially supporting a project,
I'm waiting to hear >from you. I will certainly do what I can to see
that "your" community Yizkor Book joins the many hundreds already
appearing online. Note, that it is possible to financially support
our translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and we are grateful for any sum you are able to donate.

One Yizkor Book that has now been completely translated is the
Sokoly Yizkor Book - and Avigdor and Laia Ben-Dov, who have been
behind this project for many years are to be highly commended for
seeing this through to its successful completion. This month also,
we have gratefully received a full translation for the Khmelnytskyy,
Ukraine (Proskurov) book, and the complete English version of the
Ostrolenka Yizkor book, and the first sections of these books
have already been put online. I can also tell you that other full
translations are on their way in the near future and so, as always,
keep watching this space.

Also this month, I'm pleased to announce that in the last quarter,
some 3,400 names have been added to the Yizkor Book necrology database
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/
This unique database is maintained and updated by the tireless team
of Max Heffler and Ernie Fine and this quarter they have added in
the names >from the following communities:

Bivolari, Moldavia 344
Derecske, Hungary 271
Lukow, Poland 173
Siemiatycze, Poland 1165
Tluszcz, Poland 168
Turiysk, Ukraine 455
Zborow, Poland 821

And on the subject of necrologies, we continue to look for volunteers
able to assist us in transliterating the many lists we have and make
the lists available to the public. If you are familiar with
transliterating, Excel and have some time to help out, I would
more than very pleased to hear >from you.

Now to the April figures.
