In August 2008 the Yizkor Book Project added one new book, two new
entries, and updates to nine books. All additions have been flagged
at to make it easy
for researchers to find them. At this site translations are also
listed in four categories: regions, communities, miscellaneous, and
other languages.

New book:

New entries:

-Kleczew, Poland: Pinkas HaKehillot, Polin, vol. I
-Spisskie Podhradie, Slovakia: Pinkas HaKehillot, Slovakia

-Kalarash, Moldova
-Kaluszyn, Poland
-Radzyn Podlaskie, Poland
-Sanok, Poland

Also remember to check the Yizkor Book Database at, a master bibliographic
database of most published yizkor books and other books written about
particular towns or areas. Another valuable resource is the necrology
index at, an index of the
names of persons in the necrologies--the lists of Holocaust
martyrs--published in our translated yizkor books. The necrologies
are also searchable at the Holocaust Database at

Please contact me if you are interested in starting a new yizkor book
translation project. Check the Yizkor Book Database to see if a book
has been written about your ancestral town and also check the
listings of articles in the Pinkas HaKehillot to see if there is an
article about your town. These books are listed under "Regions."

Shana tova to all the JewishGen family.
