Zachor: Yizkor Books As Collective Memory Of A Lost World

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage

Yizkor (Memorial) Books document and memorialize hundreds of Jewish communities destroyed by the Nazis. Compiled from memory by groups of former residents of each town in the immediate decades after the Holocaust, Yizkor Books are some of the best sources for learning about pre-war Jewish life in Eastern and Central Europe. Of the more than 1,500 Yizkor Books in existence, hundreds have been completely or partially translated into English by JewishGen and more than 100 translated editions are now available in print. This virtual program will explore the history, evolution, and impact of Yizkor Books.
