New Book about Brzezin (Brzeziny)

Posted by Joel Alpert

Translated from the Yiddish by Renee Miller and coordinated and Edited by Fay Vogel Bussgang, the book is one of a new series of English translations of Yizkor books being made available through the auspices of JewishGen's Yizkor Books in Print project. It is published in hard cover in a 7" x 10" format. Brzezin is 466 pages with all images from the original included.

Originally published  in Yiddish in 1961 by survivors and former residents, it details through personal accounts the town, its history, personalities, and institutions as well as the World War II destruction of the Jewish community by the Nazis and their Polish collaborators.

The English translation will make the information contained in this book more readily accessible to all who have a connection to the area. Plus, having a hard cover edition offers a wonderful opportunity for you to hold in your hands the story of the Jewish people of your ancestral town so that you and all of your family members and descendants can better understand and remember the people.

The town is also known by these names: Brzeziny [Pol], Bezhezhin [Yid], Bzheziny [Rus], Berzin, Brezhin, Breziny, Bzhezini, Bzshezshin, Löwenstadt [Ger, 1941-45]


List Price: $61.95 Available on Amazon for $45.22, may have lower prices elsewhere
