It is my great pleasure to announce that Bialystokers and others around
the world will now have access to _The Bialystoker Memorial Book_. The
entire English language part of the book (originally published in both
Yiddish and English), including all photos and captions, is being added
to Ada Holtzman's Zchor (Remembered) website at

The objectives in making this book available to those >from around the
world with interest in Jewish Bialystok are:
1. To enable those interested to learn more about this city and its
Jewish residents >from the early days to the destruction of this beloved
city by the Nazi oppressors.
2. As a tribute to Jewish Bialystokers and others who perished during
the Shoah and those who survived and made a new life for themselves and
never forgot.

This Internet publication is a joint project of The Bialystoker Center
and Bikur Cholim in New York City, Ada Holtzman and her
website, and BialyGen, the Bialystok Region Jewish Genealogy Group.

We are very grateful to The Bialystoker Center for their permission to
publish this important historical document on the Internet. We
especially thank Barry L. Winston, President; Alys Kremer Grossman,
Secretary; and Daniel Muskin, Administrator for their interest and

And, of course, we owe so much gratitude to and affection for Ada
Holtzman, who has selflessly worked to create an unparalleled memorial
to our ancestral town of Bialystok.

Ada has already added over half of the Book to her website and will be
adding the remaining chapters in the near future. Please check back
