What Yizkor Books Tell Us -- and Don't Tell Us
On Sunday June 12, 2022 from 1:00-2:30 PM CDT, the MNJGS will host Dorothy Gross Nadosy presenting a program, What Yizkor Books Tell Us -- and Don't Tell Us. Drawing from Yizkor books from Poland, Lithuania, Hungary and other Eastern European countries, she will provide an overview of the contents of these books and how they can contribute to our understanding of our ancestral towns. We learn about life in Eastern Europe and history of our ancestral towns, not just Holocaust-related history.
Dorothy’s English translation of the Yizkor book from Berehove, Ukraine, formerly Beregzász, Hungary, is published online by jewishgen.org. As a result of her research into her Beregszász roots, she has been granted Hungarian citizenship (dual citizenship). She serves on the MNJGS board and has volunteered as a Hungarian translator at IAJGS conferences. She also serves on boards of Hadassah Minneapolis St. Paul and the Minnesota Hungarians.
