Yad Vashem to Publish a Newsletter
Yad Vashem in Israel has plans to publish a newsletter. You can subscribe at http://www.yadvashem.org/. Click on the word “Subscribe” toward the upper right. (Note from Susanne -- I had trouble subscribing until I entered ONLY the mandatory fields in red….)
Index to Lodz Cemetery Planned
An ongoing project is the indexing of all burials at the cemetery in Lodz, Poland. Information can be found at http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org/defaultEN.asp. Some of the indexing has been accomplished and the search engine at the site is somewhat difficult to use. Enter Steve Morse, who's created a portal to the site that allows you to search for names in one step. The Morse portal is located at http://stevemorse.org/ in the “Holocaust and Eastern Europe” section.
