Yizkor Book Project, August 2018 #yiddish



With the High Holidays just around the corner, this is an apt opportunity
to wish you, dear readers and families, a very sweet, healthy and
particularly happy New Year.

In the meantime, I would like to update you about quite a deal of progress
that was made in the Yizkor Book Project over the last month.

For one, we saw the complete translation of yet another Yizkor book go
online. This time for Dieveniskis, Lithuania which was energetically and
tirelessly coordinated by Adam Cherson and I do salute him for his
dedication in this project and the others he leads. The progress made in
all the translation projects we run is undoubtedly due to the dedication
and time that our volunteer coordinators place into them, and we do owe
them a great deal of thanks for this.

Another addition to the YB Project last month is a pamphlet called
"Leaving Rischard" which is a family drama originating in Brzeziny and
Lodz unraveled by Swedish Television. This pamphlet, written and kindly
donated to us by Mark Ejlenberg and he informed me that the movie will
be aired on September 25th on Swedish Television.

This month, an exciting new addition was added to our library of books
published by our Yizkor Books in Print Project: "An Eternal Light: Brody,
in Memoriam". If you would like to receive more details of where this or
any of the many other books that are now available, please see the link
at the end of this report. Please note that the books we have published
are either those that were completely translated within the YB Project
framework or were donated to us in their entirety. It is clear (at least
to me) that we are only able to publish complete books and those projects
that are still work in progress, will need to wait to we complete them.
So if there is a book you are interested in seeing on your bookshelf and
has yet to be fully translated, we would welcome your financial support
to help us fulfill the task of completing its translation and publishing
it. The JewishGen-erosity page has a list of projects that are need of
such support and there is a link to this list at the end of this report.

Finally and by-the-way, if one of your New Year resolutions is to become
involved in our project in any sort of way, I would be very pleased to
hear >from you.
