We have to remember and not to forgot the pogrom >from Dorohoi, which took
place 1 July 1940, the first >from Romania, not being still in the WWII. The
Romanian Army and the paramilitary organisation, the Iron Guard killed over
50 Jews-Baruch Hasem-, infants, adults and old people up to 90. I will not
describe the reasons, the cruelties, the destructions and the exterminations
which are described in many books, but I will mention that I was a 16 year
boy, hidden with my family in the cellar of my house almost 24h. Yes, I am
from Dorohoi, where I was born and I can't forget that day.

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

French SIG #France Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #france

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As

Update of Historical Jewish Press #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

I would like to bring to your attention a number of papers that have been
added in the last month to this website here in Israel. Although the papers
are in Hebrew, they are searchable and maybe important genealogically for
those with roots in Austria, eastern Europe and Eretz Israel.

Hed Ha-Mizrach published in Jerusalem during the years 1942-1944 and again
in 1949-1951. This digital edition contains 2,669 pages. Hed Ha-Mizrach
stood out among the ethnic, community-based journals published during the
Mandate period and the first years after the establishment of the State of
Israel. The driving force behind the paper was Eliyahu Elyashar (1899-1991),
the most prominent Sephardi politician of the period, who adopted a policy
of opposition to the Ashkenazi establishment, not only on the question of
the attitude towards Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews, but also in other matters
like the Arab-Zionist conflict. The paper's renewed, digital circulation on the
internet is therefore of particular significance.
http://jpress.nli.org.il/publications/Heid_Ha-Mizrach-en.asp

Ha-Po'eel Ha-Tsa'air
The paper served as the main journal for the Zionist Labor Movement in
Palestine, >from its inception in 1907 up until the first appearance of the
daily Davar in 1925; even after it was overtaken by Davar, it continued to be
published until 1970. The website's collection includes only the years 1907-1925.

Ivri Anochi
The newspaper was published between the years 1865 and 1890 and was one of
the most important Haskalah papers, which did not undergo a nationalist
transformation during the Hibbat Tsiyyon period. The electronic edition
contains 9,331 pages.

like the Arab-Zionist conflict. The paper's renewed, digital circulation on the
internet is therefore of particular significance.
http://jpress.nli.org.il/publications/Heid_Ha-Mizrach-en.asp

Ha-Po'eel Ha-Tsa'air
The paper served as the main journal for the Zionist Labor Movement in
Palestine, >from its inception in 1907 up until the first appearance of the
daily Davar in 1925; even after it was overtaken by Davar, it continued to be
published until 1970. The website's collection includes only the years 1907-1925.

Ivri Anochi
The newspaper was published between the years 1865 and 1890 and was one of
the most important Haskalah papers, which did not undergo a nationalist
transformation during the Hibbat Tsiyyon period. The electronic edition
contains 9,331 pages.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2011 #ukraine

bounce-2249598-772980@...
 

Shalom,

As we head out into the long hot summer or the long cold winter, for those
on the other side of the planet, I have to report that June was yet another
"hyperactive" month for the Yizkor Book Project. Happily, quite a large
number of new books and entries were added and notably, a new Translation
project has been added this month for Dej, Romania (Des, Hungary) and we are
looking for financial support of this project in order to allow those of you
with roots there, to read about the people and thriving culture that existed
before the Holocaust. If you feel able to assist in helping to finance this
or any of our currently running translation projects at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
, your help would be much appreciated. The importance of these funds is
clearly illustrated in this month's updates, half of which are projects in
our Translations Funds.

June also saw the addition of a large number of necrologies which not only
immortalize the names of our loved ones but also can provide their family
relationships, professions, dates of birth and more or these people. As
such, these lists are also an invaluable genealogical resource and to assist
in research, the names >from the necrologies are periodically added to the
searchable Yizkor Book Necrology Database at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ These days, this important but
time-taking work of adding to the database is carried out by Max Heffler,
who also carries out a myriad of other tasks for JewishGen and elsewhere. I
would truly like to spread the heavy load which these days falls heavily on
Max's shoulders alone and am eager to hear >from any of you who have some
time to help in preparing the lists in Excel which are then added to the
database.

update of Historical Jewish Press #ukraine

rosef@...
 

I would like to bring to your attention a number of papers that have
been added in the last month to this website here in Israel. Although
the papers are in Hebrew, they are searchable and maybe important
genealogically for those with roots in Austria, eastern Europe and
Eretz Israel.

Hed Ha-Mizrach published in Jerusalem during the years 1942-1944 and
again in 1949-1951. This digital edition contains 2,669 pages. Hed
Ha-Mizrach stood out among the ethnic, community-based journals
published during the Mandate period and the first years after the
establishment of the State of Israel. The driving force behind the
paper was Eliyahu Elyashar (1899-1991), the most prominent Sephardi
politician of the period, who adopted a policy of opposition to the
Ashkenazi establishment, not only on the question of the attitude
towards Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews, but also in other matters like the
Arab-Zionist conflict. The paper's renewed, digital circulation on the
internet is therefore of particular significance.
http://jpress.nli.org.il/publications/Heid_Ha-Mizrach-en.asp

Ha-Po'eel Ha-Tsa'air
The paper served as the main journal for the Zionist Labor Movement in
Palestine, >from its inception in 1907 up until the first appearance of
the daily Davar in 1925; even after it was overtaken by Davar, it
continued to be published until 1970. The website's collection
includes only the years 1907-1925.


Ivri Anochi
The newspaper was published between the years 1865 and 1890 and was
one of the most important Haskalah papers, which did not undergo a
nationalist transformation during the ibbat Tsiyyon period. The
electronic edition contains 9,331 pages.

Hed Ha-Mizrach published in Jerusalem during the years 1942-1944 and
again in 1949-1951. This digital edition contains 2,669 pages. Hed
Ha-Mizrach stood out among the ethnic, community-based journals
published during the Mandate period and the first years after the
establishment of the State of Israel. The driving force behind the
paper was Eliyahu Elyashar (1899-1991), the most prominent Sephardi
politician of the period, who adopted a policy of opposition to the
Ashkenazi establishment, not only on the question of the attitude
towards Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews, but also in other matters like the
Arab-Zionist conflict. The paper's renewed, digital circulation on the
internet is therefore of particular significance.

Ha-Po'eel Ha-Tsa'air
The paper served as the main journal for the Zionist Labor Movement in
Palestine, >from its inception in 1907 up until the first appearance of
the daily Davar in 1925; even after it was overtaken by Davar, it
continued to be published until 1970. The website's collection
includes only the years 1907-1925.


Ivri Anochi
The newspaper was published between the years 1865 and 1890 and was
one of the most important Haskalah papers, which did not undergo a
nationalist transformation during the ibbat Tsiyyon period. The
electronic edition contains 9,331 pages.
