The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

The Life and Fall of Wlodowa

The Memorial Book of Wlodawa

Leaves in Memoriam

Such has been the custom of our fathers and forefathers for many a generation: on old books' leaves they would note down the memorial days of ancestors and relatives who had passed away.

During the holocaust the books were destroyed, the names disappeared from the face of the earth and those memorial-days, sacred to every family, sank into oblivion.

We've supplemented our memorial-book with additinal pages, through which we wish to carry on with the great tradition of remembrance. Thus so our ancestors memory shall forever dwell in the hearts of their offspring. In those empty pages may each and every one of the remnants of our communitiy note down, in memory of those holy ones of his family who passed away, their names, ages,, where and how they died or were killed and where were they buried.

And cometh the day, after 120 years, when our children shall continue to write in the remaining empty pages the memorial-days of their loved ones passed away -- fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers, and all those dear souls whose memory shall forever be carried in our hearts.

Other empty pages are intended for noting down important events, such as marrigges etc.
