As a Jewish Genealogy Family Finder (JGFF) registered researcher for Sokoly, Poland, I thought you would want to know that the Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project of JewishGen, has just published a revised (Dec. 2019), 2nd edition of the book:
Deliverance: The Diary of Michael Maik
In Memory of the Destroyed Jewish Community of Sokoly, Poland
Translated from the Hebrew by Laia Ben-Dov
List price: $62.95, available from JewishGen for $31
Researchers and descendants of Sokoly and vicinity Jewish communities will especially want to have this book for remembrance and to pass on to future generations of children and grandchildren. The Yizkor-Books-in-Print Project has done a magnificent job of creating a sturdy hard-cover book that is a treasure and a beautiful resource for information about ordinary lives of Jews and their communities in a world that is no more.
To order, go online to the bottom of https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Sokoly.html
We hope you will find this book of interest to you and your family in discovering the history of your ancestors. You might also consider donating a copy to other relatives or friends who might be interested, or--If you live in a community or city with a Holocaust museum or public library -- you may be able to make a copy available to many other readers. By further sharing of this book, you will be fulfilling Michael Maik’s heartfelt plea to tell the story of the Jews from Sokoly and vicinity to the Jews of the world and not let their voices be silenced. Indeed, all mankind needs a moral reawakening and a firm commitment that the evil events described in this book shall never be allowed to happen again.
Please note, I have no financial interest in the sale of this book and all work I, and others have done to translate, edit and prepare the book for publication has solely been done on a voluntary, non-profit basis in honor of Michael Maik and his son, Moshe, may their memory be for a blessing.
