Lance Ackerfeld just announced the addition of the book "Bound by Fate"
to the Yizkor Book Project.
"Bound By Fate" was written by a group of survivors to commemorate the
Jewish Community of Monor, Hungary, which was purged of all Jews during
the Holocaust. No trace of the Jewish community exists today -- no
memorials, plaques, or Stolpersteine.
This book is the result of 15 years of dedicated research by a small
group of Monor survivors, and contains, among other things, a list of
victims, a list of known survivors scattered throughout the world,
testimonies, and several family trees. A Hungarian hard copy version was
published in 2016, followed by an English translation in 2018.
At the wishes of the compilers and publisher, this book is not for sale.
It's purpose is to inform researchers, and will be distributed only to
organizations, libraries, and academic institutions with an interest in
I have digitized both the Hungarian and English versions (212pp. and
184pp., respectively) in PDF and Word formats. Each is fully searchable,
with photographs, and can be sent as an e-mail attachment to individuals
who would like to have a copy for their own research. If you want to
receive a copy (at no charge), please contact me at <
lipmanson@...> . Indicate which language version you want, and
the format. If no preference is given, you will receive the English
version as a PDF attachment.
