Yizkor Book Project, October 2014 #unitedkingdom



As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I
am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.
