A labor of love opens windows on lost world

(Update on Sid Shaievitz' work on the Felshtin yizkor book.)


Following his visit to Gvardeyskoye in May 2007, Mel Werbach launched a Felshtin Memorial Project. We thank everyone who has donated. The list is here.

Mel's account of his trip is Felshtin 70 Years Later.  He has also made photos from his trip available.

"In Memory of the Martyrs of Felshtin community and the surroundings in the Ukraine that were murdered in the Petlura calamity, may their names (the rioters) be removed, in the year 5679, in the month of Adar, in the days of the pogrom, and the holocaust in the days of the Nazi occupation.

"May God avenge their blood.

"May their souls be bound in the bundle of life, memorialized by the people of Felshtin and the diaspora."

A review of the Felshtin yizkor book appears here.

A new translation of the victims of the Felshtin pogrom is now available.  (An earlier translation in alphabetical order by surname is also available here.)
