Yizkor Book Update - April and May 2020
by Binny Lewis
Dear JewishGen Community,
The JewishGen Yizkor Book Team has been very active in the past two months. Here are some highlights of what we have accomplished and are continuing to work on.
At JewishGen.org, among our biggest priorities is the translation of Yizkor Books, which were written to perpetuate the legacy of Jewish communities destroyed during the Holocaust. See: https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/
Summary of Recent Progress
Translations Completed in April and May
Yizkor Books Available Online or in Hard Copy
JewishGen is pleased to announce the release of 2 fully translated Yizkor Books now available in hard copy. To view a list of all books available in hard copy, please click here.
Books Published in April & May include:
I would like to dedicate this monthly update to the memory of two amazing women who have recently been taken from us in these difficult times. They will remain forever in our hearts.
My grandmother, Rebbetzin Leona Bomzer O”BM, who inspired her family to always put education above all else.
My wife’s grandmother, Bubby Fayge Fogel O”BM, a Holocaust survivor, who taught us that life can be rebuilt and regrown from the ashes.
We are expanding the Yizkor Book Team!!
We are working on many upcoming projects, including a Priority Book List to translate, New Workflow, Web Redesign and more. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering for the Yizkor Book Project, please see the information below:
