Belarus SIG #Belarus New Yizkor project: "The Holocaust in Belarus" #belarus


Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

Long-term members may recall that late last year, I asked for volunteers to
help translate >from Russian Dr. Leonid Smilovitsky's "The Holocaust in
Belarus". Although there was some response, the rate of progress has been
slow, so the next step has been taken: all of you with an interest in
Belarus who wish to be able to read the book in its entirety in English now
have the opportunity to make (US) tax-deductible donations towards its
translation by professional translators. A total of $2000 should do the
job.

The project is described at

& is linked >from
http://www2.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html and
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Belarus.html

The table of contents, bibliography and a few other sections of the book are
already on the Yizkor Project website.
