Families of Shoah victims unmentioned in the Gombin Yizkor book #yizkorbooks #gombin

I am currently coordinating the translation of the Gombin memorial book for the JewishGen Yizkor Books Project. After realizing that many, perhaps a majority of the families of Shoah victims from Gombin were not memorialized in the original book, I am working with various lists to try to establish the approximate proportion of unmentioned families and identify as many of them as possible. The translated version of the book will feature a postscript to memorialize the families that can be recognized as missing in the book.

The original Gombin Yizkor book is available online for free downloading at https://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/collections/yizkor-books/yzk-nybc313762.

I am inviting Gombiner descendants and researchers to have a look at the original book’s memorial pages and photos and contribute any information that you may consider valuable for this task. Any information relevant for the postscript should be sent to: Leon Zamosc, lzamosc@...

I would also like to take the opportunity to invite donations for the translation project. Donating by credit card is easy and secure (no fees or charges involved): just go to the JewishGen-erosity Yizkor Books donations’ webpage and find the Gombin fund in the list of ongoing Yizkor book translations: https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23. Any amount is acceptable, and donors at the level of $300 and above will receive a complimentary hardback copy of the translated Gombin memorial book.

Zay gezunt, Leon Zamosc
