About Yizkor books

A Yizkor book is a "book of remembrance" about a Jewish community that was destroyed in the Holocaust. Each book documents the town's history and usually gives a necrology (list of the murdered) at the back of the book. Most of the books were written by survivors from the town, or people from the town who had immigrated before the war, and were mostly published between 1945 and 1975, and usually written in Hebrew or Yiddish. Some large towns may have had more than one Yizkor book published at different times.

The non-profit Jewish genealogy organization JewishGen has a comprehensive online database of Yizkor books and the towns that they document. They also host English language translations of much of the content of the books, sponsored by the website's donors and volunteers.

Many of these books have been scanned and put online for free reading at the New York Public Library's Yizkor Book website. The Yiddish Book Center also offers reprints of Yizkor Books which you can buy on their website.
