Thank you #ukraine
Over the last several years (since 2013) I have been privileged to have
worked with many talented volunteers at Ukraine SIG. We've had some
great successes - our discussion group list has grown, we have a huge
number of projects underway raising funds for acquisition, translating
and cataloging documents, we still have a backlog of over half a million
pages of documents waiting to be translated, have partnered with
Yahad-in-Unum (don't forget that this summer's Ukraine SIG luncheon
speaker at the IAJGS is a staff member of that phenomenal organization)
and with the USHMM on various projects, a new way for vetting translators,
and so much more. At this summer's IAJGS conference, I will be stepping
down >from my post as Ukraine SIG Coordinator.
I look forward to seeing many of you at this summer's conference at the
IAJGS conferences for many years to come, as well as at talks I give all
over the country.
There are simply too many amazing people who have stepped up to the
plate over these years to thank you individually, so I apologize for
this mass thank you. Thank you for all your support and willingness to
be part of the volunteer team.
