FW: [iajgs] Much Needed New Yizkor Book Series in English
- New Book Announcement: "The Destruction of Czestochova" is one in a series
of English translations of Yizkor books being made available through the
auspices of JewishGen Inc.s new Yizkor-Books-in-Print Project. As most of
you know, jewishgen.org is the most visited non-profit Jewish genealogical
website online and is an affiliate of the Museum of Jewish Heritage A
Living Memorial to the Holocaust. Our intention is for this unique
literature to be a major source for research and teaching of the history of
Jewish communities in these towns.
These memorial books were written to honor the lost Jewish communities of
villages and towns that were destroyed by the Nazis during World War II.
These translations provide the English speaking community with a first-hand
account in hard cover format, all approximately 7 x 10, so that
researchers and descendants of those destroyed communities as well as
museum, university and synagogue libraries can offer this history. Through
personal accounts, they detail the rich cultural life in the town, its
institutions, personalities, and organizations as well as an account of the
destruction of the Jewish community by the Nazis and their Polish
collaborators in World War II. At present there are nine books available and
several more are in preparation.
The Destruction of Czestochova (Czestochowa, Poland) was first published in
Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1949 in Yiddish by survivors and former residents
of the town. For the assistance of researchers, the town has also been known
as: Czestochowa [Pol], Chenstochov [Yid], Tschenstochau [Ger], Censtochová
[Cz], Chenstokhova [Rus], Chenstokhov, Chestokhova, Tshenstokhov.
