JRI Poland #Poland SIERPC YIZKOR BOOK TRANSLATION COMPLETE #poland
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
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.
