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 JewishGen's 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: roekard@lmi.net

Best regards,

Karen G. Rosenfeld Roekard
of the Rawa Ruska ROSENFELDs and the Belz ROKARTs
