Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

Ooops I forgot to include the link for the video

The link is: https://mamaligablues.vhx.tv/

Mamaliga Blues in English is a documentary about a Jewish family which
goes on a journey >from Brazil to Moldova in search of distant relatives
and a lost grave. The trip takes them on an exploration of Eastern
Europe Jewish history and the Holocaust.

It runs 54 minutes. It is available for rental online for only a few
weeks. According to the producer, Cassio Tolpolar, many people wanted
to watch the film but were not able to go to any public screenings or
purchase its institutional DVD.

I have no affiliation with the film and am sharing the information
solely for the information of the reader. I have not yet viewed
the video.

New Polish State Archives website under development #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Yaniv Reginiano requested clarification of the following announcement
by the Polish State Archives:

"This is the last update of the szukajwarchiwach.pl website
and in the future it will not be enriched with new scans"

The Polish State Archives has been developing a new website and
database structure for several years.

The above statement merely indicates that the current
szukajwarchiwach.pl website will no longer be maintained and
all existing information and scans will be transferred to
the new website and in future only this new one will be updated.

At this time, it is not known when the transition will take place.

JRI Poland #Poland New Polish State Archives website under development #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Yaniv Reginiano requested clarification of the following announcement
by the Polish State Archives:

"This is the last update of the szukajwarchiwach.pl website
and in the future it will not be enriched with new scans"

The Polish State Archives has been developing a new website and
database structure for several years.

The above statement merely indicates that the current
szukajwarchiwach.pl website will no longer be maintained and
all existing information and scans will be transferred to
the new website and in future only this new one will be updated.

At this time, it is not known when the transition will take place.

JRI Poland #Poland Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

Re: Major addition of scans to PSA #poland

Yaniv Reginiano <yanivreg@...>
 

Thanks Amit for the update about 3.5 million new scans on
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl.

However, their announcement says "This is the last update of the
szukajwarchiwach.pl website and in the future it will not be enriched
with new scans" (translated to English).

Does someone understand the meaning of this? Do they plan to shift the
responsibility of scanning images to the local archives? The
announcement is found here:
