This book tells about Brody's Jews during a period of 400 years of the existence of
their community: about the changes they went through,the days of flourishing and
glory and the days of lowliness and poverty, and the way Brody came to be called
Jerusalem of Galitzia, until its destruction during the Holocaust.
The book begins with the history of the community >from its establishment until its
destruction (1588 - 1943). Then the description of the community between the two
World Wars, including its destruction during the Shoah is presented, including a
list of the Righteous of the Nations of the World, who saved a few of our
Brody's community Jews.
The Yizkor chapter, containing the list of our community martyrs who were killed
during the Holocaust at the hands of evil gentiles For the sanctification of the
Name, is actually a realization of the idea of the publication of a memorial book
for those who were buried in mass graves in foreign soil, those who were not given
a Jewish burial and those whose burial location is unknown.
At the end of the book are: a list of Brody's young people who fought against the
Nazis and were killed during the years 1939 - 1945; a list of Brody's natives who
passed away in Israel; a list of Brody's natives and their descendants who were
killed during the wars to establish and protect Israel; and finally an appendix
containing the article We the Polish Jews by Julian Tuvim.
This book serves as a fitting memorial (Yizkor) for the destroyed Jewish community
of Brody, Ukraine.
