The husband of Ala Gamulka, who has translated many Yizkor books for JewishGen, has passed away. He was born in Kovel, grew up in Rokitno, and survived the war by hiding out in the forest with his mother.
 
I came to know Ala because she volunteered her help to translate the now-completed Kovel Yizkor book. Because of her husband's heritage, she did it as "a labor of love."
