Jack BERGER has now completed the translation of the Rawa Ruska Yizkor Book
(Memorial Book); it is his fifteenth Yizkor Book translation. Yizkor books are the
books that Survivors and Emigres >from a town compiled to memorialize their town.
The Rawa book is 700+ pages long and includes the history of the town, stories
about the town and the relations between the Hasidim and those who broke away,
stories about people >from the town, a lot about the 1930s, the time before
the Holocaust, the Holocaust and post Holocaust. It also has a section on Magierow.
It is profound and includes citations of many, many Rawa Ruska families.
For personal reasons, Jack chooses to do his translations on a voluntary basis and
outside of the aegis of JewishGen. Hence, the book will not be available online at
JewishGens website or any other website and only a few will be available to the
general public in the libraries to which people donate copies.
He expects to be going to print on November 7th, 2017. It will then take about 8
weeks for the books to be printed and shipped to him and then about 2 weeks for him
to mail them all out. He will be printing only as many copies as have been ordered.
If you are interested in purchasing copies please send me a note and I will forward
it to Jack. JewishGen rules preclude me >from including his contact information in
this message. And, i am always happy to answer any questions i can:
