JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Sierpc Yizkor Book Translation Complete #general

Dear friends,

I am delighted to share wonderful news about the Yizkor Book for
Sierpc, Poland. Translation of this 600-plus page volume is now
complete and it is online in its entirety at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Sierpc/Sierpc.html.

I am indebted to Dorothy Lipsky, who shared with me the project
coordination and editing of this extraordinary volume. We had the
benefit of the masterful translations of Alex Weingarten (Hebrew
sections) and Jerrold Landau (Yiddish sections), each a joy to work
with. We are deeply indebted to Perry Rosenstein and the Puffin
Foundation (Teaneck, NJ) for financial support. And of course we
acknowledge the incomparable support of Lance Ackerfeld and his
team in making our work available to all. If you have ancestral
roots in Sierpc or nearby communities (e.g., Zuromin, Rypin, Raciaz,
Plock) I encourage you to access the translation. The amount of
detail and the quality of the writing are superb. Much of it is
heartbreaking, but all is illuminating.
