JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen An extra Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page for Purim #general

Bruce Drake <bruce.drake@...>

Since Purim begins Saturday night, I thought I'd offer a "bonus" installment
of the weekly Yizkor book excerpt. This account of the holiday is >from the
memorial book of Kaluszyn, a town in Poland 35 miles east of Warsaw that, in
1921, had a Jewish population of about 5,000. S. Ben Moshe-Aron describes
the festive mood that began even before the holiday through the "festivities
[that] lasted late into the night."
