Yizkor Book Project, February 2012 #scandinavia


Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

To begin with, I am very excited to inform you that no less than 5 new
Translation Project funds were initiated over this last month:

- Briceni, Moldova
- Jadow, Poland
- Sierpc, Poland
- Smarhon (Smorgon), Belarus
- Sokyryany (Sekiryani, Bessarabia), Ukraine

Now, for those aren't familiar with the concept, the Translation Funds are
set up to collect donations for the professional translation of the Yizkor
Books. Since finding a skilled volunteer translators capable of taking on
the translation of a whole book is usually not realistic, our recommendation
is to set up a fund, within JewishGen, into which all of those people
interested in a particular community book can help support its translation
and for which donations are tax-exempt for US citizens. So if there is a
book you would like to see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the ins and outs of how these fund work. Note that you'll find a full list
of our ongoing projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and any financial support you are able to offer would be gratefully
received.

Other good news this last month was the kind donation to the Yizkor Book
Project of the Kielce, Poland book "The Martyrdom and Extermination of the
Jews in Kielce During World War II" by Prof. Krzysztof Urbanski, the first
sections of which have already been added. Please note that in recent times
we have received a number of complete books which are, slowly but surely,
being added into our Yizkor Book projects.

And on completed books, the first books to roll out of our Yizkor Books in
Print Project will very shortly be available. If you wish to know further
about this project, please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html
which has all you would like to know about this steadily growing project.

Before detailing last month's statistics, I would personally like to wish
you all a joyful Purim and suggest that if you have a chance, read some of
the many recollections of this holiday in our online Yizkor Books. In some
small way, we are keeping up the fond memories of this vibrant Jewish
holiday in those multitudes of communities that no longer exist.
