please check the yizkor books that are fundraising projects, meaning that
professional translators are hired to translated these books. The translators are
paid with donations made to JewishGen. In other words, no money, no translation.
Help us continue our work of making these precious books available to English-
speaking researchers by contributing generously to these projects and to
JewishGen, which provides the infrastructure to house this material online.
