Brody Yizkor Book

X-No-archive: yes
Genners with an interest in Brody (formerly Brody, Galicia, then Brody,
Poland, now Brody, Ukraine) may have noticed that translations of a few more
chapters from the Brody yizkor book, Ner Tamid--Yizkor leBrody, are now

If you would like to volunteer to be the Brody Yizkor Book Translation
Project Coordinator or are interested but feel you need more information,
please contact Lance Ackerfeld, Yizkor Book Project Manager. You will see a
way to do this at the bottom of the main page for the Yizkor Book
Translations Project:

Over the years, a few people have written me expressing an interest in a
particular chapter of the Brody yizkor book and I have scanned and forwarded
the requested pages to these people. If you are one of these people and
have managed to obtain a translation of the pages sent to you, please
contact me so that I can arrange to get the translation from you. We would
naturally like to have any good translations that have already been done
rather than paying a translator to do the work all over again.
