Jewish Partisans and Fighters of Volyn

Translation from Partizanim v'Lochamim Yehudim MeiVolhyn L'Zichram
by Shalom Bronstein

INTRODUCTION

This is a transcription into English of the 822 names in the necrology which is found in the book Jewish Partisans and Fighters of Volyn in their Memory (1997), pages 98-105.

The transcription followed the generally accepted pattern for Hebrew to English.  Below are the guidelines used in transcribing these names:

  • Names beginning with the Hebrew letter 'Alef' appear under the letters A, E, I and O, according to their pronunciation
  • Most of the names beginning with the Hebrew letter 'Vav' appears under 'W', even though there is no W in either Hebrew or Yiddish.
  • All names beginning with the Hebrew letter 'Het' appear with a 'Ch' as their initial letters.
  • Names beginning with the Hebrew letter 'Zayin' appear under the letter 'Z', even though some would probably be more familiar if spelled with an 'S'.
  • Names beginning with the letter 'Peh' will be found both under 'F' and 'P'.
  • Some of the names beginning with the letter 'Tzadi' are listed under the letter that would be most familiar — e.g. "Zimmerman" and not "Tzimmerman", "Charney" and not "Tzarney", while other names begin with 'Tz'.
  • All names beginning with the letter 'Kuf' are listed under the letter 'K'.
  • The 'Y' and 'I' endings for the listed names are interchangeable as all are spelled with the letter 'Yod'.
  • Some of the names listed under "S" begin with the letter 'Shin'.
  • All first names follow the Hebrew, Yiddish or Russian spelling as it appeared in the list, e.g.: "Avraham" and not "Abraham"; "Yitzhak" and not "Isaac"; "Aizik" and not "Isaac".
