Yizkor Book Project, March 2016 #ukraine

Shalom,

Yet another month has whooshed past and it's the time to let you know what
has been accomplished in the Yizkor Book Project over the last 31 days. I
would like to point out some particularly notable projects that were added
or updated in March:

The first was the completion of the online placement of the translation of
the Golshany, Belarus Yizkor Book, which was generously donated to our
project by Jack Leibman and we are most thankful for this significant
donation.

Another notable addition was the addition of the "Biographical Dictionary of
Jewish Resistance" book which was provided to us by Yad Vashem. The list of
the names appearing in it was painstakingly translated for us by Shalom
Bronstein and it contains an enormous amount of information on a large
number of Jewish Partisans and is definitely worth your perusal.

I am also pleased to note that Esther Weinschelbaum has kindly sent us a
Hebrew translation of the Kamen Kashirskiy Book which joins the ever growing
Hebrew translations about former Jewish communities in the Ukraine and
Esther is well-deserving of our grateful thanks.

Finally, as I've noted before, the Yizkor Books in Print Project doesn't
stop for a minute and just this last month, we are happy to announce that
the publishing of "The Book of Dembitz". This and the many other books
already published by the YBIP Project are in high demand. Of course, there
are still many books waiting to be published and the work goes on as we
"speak".

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
