Yizkor Books-In-Print Project announces the publication of its 57th title Zabrze (Hindenburg) Yizkor Book #general

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project of JewishGen is proud to announce the
publication of its 57th title, "Zabrze (Hindenburg) Yizkor Book" in hard cover.

Zabrze (Hindenburg) Yizkor Book
By William Leibner
Edited by Phyllis Oster and Tammy Forstater

Published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project, part of Yizkor Books Project
of JewishGen, Inc.
Hard Cover, 11" by 8.5", 270 pages with all illustrations.
List Price: $47.95 Available on Amazon for around $35

This is not only a Yizkor Book in the traditional sense; it tells the story
of a Jewish orphanage that, after the Holocaust, successfully gave Jewish
children back their heritage.

With the liberation of Poland, Jewish authorities in Palestine and Poland
were besieged with pleas to help locate Polish Jewish children who had
survived the war hidden with Christian familiesâ??many of whom did not want
to relinquish them. Many had no living relatives, and there was no legal
way to return them to the Jewish community. The answer lay in the old
Jewish tradition of Pidyon Shvuyim, or redemption of Jewish prisoners by
paying ransom: the children must be redeemed in order to be restored to
their families and the Jewish community. It would require huge sums of
money, and a team of dedicated negotiators, organizers and educators, led
by Captain Yeshayahu Drucker, called "Pan Kapitan."

Most of the redeemed children had been raised as practicing Catholics, both
a protection and a way for them to fit in. In a loving atmosphere, the
orphanage staff at Zabrze slowly returned the children to their Jewish
roots, giving them the confidence to embrace their religion. Most
eventually came to Israel, settled, and raised families. This is that
amazing story of survival of the Jewish people.

That would explain why I've been able to have FamilyTreeDNA tests
sent to Israel, if they can be processed outside the country.
