Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added
these 2 new projects:

Dunaszerdahely)

Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

[MODERATOR NOTE: Please see especially the listing below for Kolomyya,
Ukraine -- once a Galician town.]

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to
read about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after
many years of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen
Garshick and quite a few volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for
their splendid translations. The result of all this team's efforts has now
been rewarded by the placement of the whole book online but they
certainly aren't resting on their laurels and the translations of other
Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn
project which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who
sadly passed away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact
with this fine gentleman over many years and, as with many of the
Holocaust survivors, he saw the great importance of making the
Yizkor Book material readily available to the present generation and
those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his participation
with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always
on the lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of
activities the Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to
translate >from Hebrew or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type
up English pages, your assistance in these fields would be most
welcome and I would be very pleased to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have
added these 2 new projects:

Cemetery in NY/Brooklyn #galicia

rosibal
 

Hag sameach to everyone. This is my first posting.

I need your help.

I have searched everywhere on the internet for a relative buried in
one of the NY cemeteries (Brooklyn). I could not find anything about
him. His name was Bentzion Balbirer. I know he went by the name of
Benny and his last name was possibly spelled Balbierer or even
Balbir. He must have passed away in the late 50s or even early 60s.
His wife's name was Berta (Bella). They lived in Brooklyn and they
originally had come >from Plonna, Galicia in 1920.

When I asked one of his grandchildren where they were buried, he
said that he doesn't remember the name of the cemetery but that
he always sees it whenever he drives into Manhattan on the other
side of the road. (He lives in NC.) I am not >from New York and would
very much like to know the place he is buried. Who do I need to
contact to find out? Would the Hevra Kaddisha have a registry of who
is buried where? Please help. I also searched JewishGen and Ancestry
for burial places but came out with nothing.

Thank you in advance

Shosh Balbirer
