(UK) More on British Archive Makes Available Footage of British Jews in 20th Century #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As many of you contacted me expressing disappointment that the BFI Archive
on British Jews in the 20th century restricted access to only those in the
United Kingdom, I wrote to them.

This is the response I received >from the curatorial archivist:

" Unfortunately, due to copyright restrictions, it is not currently possible
to access the BFI Player collections outside of the UK. However you should
be able to access some of the Jewish Britain on Film collection on the BFI
YouTube channel as there are no geographical restrictions on access:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXvkgGofjDzjtzwFFcuVeccVmTmL-FESu "

I hope this helps with accessing some of their collection.

Yizkor Book Project, December 2017 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It would seem that in the last month of 2017, the Yizkor Book Project
continued on it's very positive trend and we are definitely looking
forward to continuing, ever onwards, in 2018. I would like to take
this opportunity to thank the many, many and many volunteers who
tirelessly support the YB project in numerous ways, to the professional
translations who help reveal the hidden treasures in the Yizkor books
and, finally, to the generous donors, without whom, we couldn't go
forward with our projects.

So what did we do in December? To begin with, last month saw us seeing
the final translated pages of an additional three books go online. They
were:

- Chisinau, Moldova (The Jews of Kishinev) The book was entirely and
voluntarily translated by Sheli Fain, to whom we owe a great deal of
thanks. Yefim Kogan was there together with Sheli to help out with the
logistics and scanning and we do appreciate his drive and assistance in
seeing this project to completion.
- Narach (Kobylnik), Belarus (Memorial Book of Kobylnik) This
translation project was energetically coordinated by Anita Gabbay who
managed to arrange its translation in a relatively short period of time
and our indebted thanks do go out to her.
- Stryy, Ukraine (Book of Stryj) The completion of this book, begun many
years ago by Mike Kalt, could not have come about without the great
number of translations by Susan Rosin, supported by translations by
other volunteers, including Yocheved Klausner and Daniella Heller. To
all of these good people, we send out a humble thanks.

Last month, we added in the necrology for Dubrovitsa, Ukraine which
includes a disturbing 2,626 victims >from this community. The necrologies,
apart >from immortalizing the names of the martyrs, also provide us with
significant information about the people, such as details of their
parents, spouses and children. I believe that over the years, we have
placed online the bulk of the necrologies >from the Yizkor books, but our
intention is to continue with this endeavor, till we have completed them
all.

Other important genealogical information we have added in recently, comes
in the form of lists of survivors often noted in the Yizkor books.
Examples of these lists, were the additions last month of a list of 277
survivors >from Krasnik and lists of survivors >from Wolbrom who lived in
Israel at the time of the Yizkor book's publishing. Once again, we will
continue to extract these lists as an important genealogical resource
supplied by the Yizkor books.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in December.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yizkor Book Project, December 2017 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It would seem that in the last month of 2017, the Yizkor Book Project
continued on it's very positive trend and we are definitely looking
forward to continuing, ever onwards, in 2018. I would like to take
this opportunity to thank the many, many and many volunteers who
tirelessly support the YB project in numerous ways, to the professional
translations who help reveal the hidden treasures in the Yizkor books
and, finally, to the generous donors, without whom, we couldn't go
forward with our projects.

So what did we do in December? To begin with, last month saw us seeing
the final translated pages of an additional three books go online. They
were:

- Chisinau, Moldova (The Jews of Kishinev) The book was entirely and
voluntarily translated by Sheli Fain, to whom we owe a great deal of
thanks. Yefim Kogan was there together with Sheli to help out with the
logistics and scanning and we do appreciate his drive and assistance in
seeing this project to completion.
- Narach (Kobylnik), Belarus (Memorial Book of Kobylnik) This
translation project was energetically coordinated by Anita Gabbay who
managed to arrange its translation in a relatively short period of time
and our indebted thanks do go out to her.
- Stryy, Ukraine (Book of Stryj) The completion of this book, begun many
years ago by Mike Kalt, could not have come about without the great
number of translations by Susan Rosin, supported by translations by
other volunteers, including Yocheved Klausner and Daniella Heller. To
all of these good people, we send out a humble thanks.

Last month, we added in the necrology for Dubrovitsa, Ukraine which
includes a disturbing 2,626 victims >from this community. The necrologies,
apart >from immortalizing the names of the martyrs, also provide us with
significant information about the people, such as details of their
parents, spouses and children. I believe that over the years, we have
placed online the bulk of the necrologies >from the Yizkor books, but our
intention is to continue with this endeavor, till we have completed them
all.

Other important genealogical information we have added in recently, comes
in the form of lists of survivors often noted in the Yizkor books.
Examples of these lists, were the additions last month of a list of 277
survivors >from Krasnik and lists of survivors >from Wolbrom who lived in
Israel at the time of the Yizkor book's publishing. Once again, we will
continue to extract these lists as an important genealogical resource
supplied by the Yizkor books.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in December.

We have added in 2 new entries:

- Novo-Vitebsk, Ukraine (Jewish Farmers in Russian Fields)
