Hungary SIG #Hungary Yizkor Book Project, April 2014 #hungary



It is sometimes quite amazing what can be done with the days
and hours in a month and quite a few dedicated volunteers.
The results of their labor within the Yizkor Book Project
is listed below, and continues as we "speak".

Although I frequently note our volunteers (well, at least try to),
I should really point out that a great deal of translations are
carried out by our very professional paid translators. Whilst
I prefer not to list them here for fear of forgetting someone,
you'll see their names appear frequently in the translations
appearing in the Yizkor Book site and I for one, am very
grateful for the excellent work they do within our project.

As you may be aware, their payment comes >from the kind donations
of people wishing to make sure that the contents of the Yizkor
books are made readily available to those of us who don't read
Yiddish and/or Hebrew, and will be available for the present
and generations to come. If this way of immortalizing our lost
communities is important to you, we welcome your donations to
one of our many projects which can be found at:

If the Yizkor book for the community of your interest
has yet to be set up as a project, please contact me
and we'll see how we can get such a project moving.
