Kobrin, Belarus - Yizkor Book in English #belarus


David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

The Sept. 10, 1998, issue of the "Washington Jewish Week" included an
article by Noma Faingold of the "Jewish Bulletin of Northern California"
tiled Yizkor Books Illuminate Like in Prewar Shtetls.

The article indicates that the San Francisco-based Holocaust Center of
Northern California published an English translation of the 406-page
Kobrin Yizkor book. "The book was orginally published in Tel Aviv in
1951 and it features vintage photgraphs and dozens of accounts covering
daily life, history and notable local personalities.

If anyone is researching Kobrin, they might want to contact the Holocaust
Center of Northern California to see if copies of the book are still
available for sale. If someone does, please share the reply with the
rest of this discussion group.

In addition, the article indicates that the Holocaust Center had received
a parial grant to copy the 500 yizkor book collection into microform.
