Small and im-povcrished though it was, it could point to warmth and friendliness which imbued its environs and which gave a lift to the spirit; a town permeated with holiday mood and fine Jewish tradition. There were, indeed, skeptics amongst us, who—at the outset —had doubted possibility of publication of a volume on this na-ture. Thanks, however, to landsleit Diamond and Awcrbuch, the book has become a reality: Diamond, who contributed—through authorship of articles, research, compilation and fusion of the material into a unified, integrated entity—and Awerbuch. dynamo of the project, who labored for the book's publication. Among the annihilated, obliterated Jewish towns, ours, too, will let its voice be heard—through the pages of this Volume. A Memorial ...

We thank all the Husiatiner Podolicr landsleit who have participated in this vital endeavor and have aided in realization of the Project to perpetuate the memory of our annihilated town. At the outset, Benjamin Diamond and Morris Awerbuch approached us in the town of Sea Bright, New Jersey, our residence, and discussed with us this project. Naturally, we listened to them with keenest interest, and assured them that we would aid them financially, and in every other manner, so that the task of the Memorial Book’s publication be successfully realized.
