Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #scandinavia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this
