HTML volunteers needed for the ShtetLinks Project #austria-czech

Susana Leistner Bloch

Dear Friends,

When we submitted a previous message, asking for volunteers to help
create ShtetLinks webpages several people responded and we now have a
wonderful team of dedicated and overworked volunteers. However,
there are not enough of them and prospective webpage owners have to
wait for months to get technical help.

Our webpages are "Cyberspace Yizkor Books". Just as former residents
took it upon themselves to record all they could remember and publish
a Yizkor Book in memory of their Jewish community , so we, the next
generation, should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit
of information that sheds light on the lives of our Jewish
communities is recorded and preserved. The people who published
Yizkor Books usually were in contact with others living in the same
town or country. Contact with their landsmen in other countries was
difficult. To us, in the 21st century, there are no limitations.
Cyberspace has opened up the world to us.

If you have the necessary skills we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a Kehilla / Shtetl / Town /
Immigrant Neighbourhood, and in this way honour and memorialize the
Jewish community that once lived there and also provide a valuable
resource for their descendants.
