The attached newspaper clipping from the early 1940's described the events that happened to the Jewish community of Zaleszczyki, Poland. I would appreciate if anyone could translate this into English. Thanks in advance.

11/14/2012 8:08 PM "300 Jewish Women Murdered by the Nazis in Lashkevitz.

The rabbi of Lashkevitz rabbi Gotesman, 44 East 3rd Street, New York, received news from rabbi Efraim Vainberger from Zaleshtchike, who saved himself from nazi hell and is in Jerusalem, saying that the nazis murdered 300 Jewish women in Zaleshtchike and most of the Jews in town. This terrible nazi slaughter took place on the 24th day of the month of Heshvan in the year 5,702. Zaleshtchike is located not far from the city of Tarnopol.
Among the martyrs who perished are the dayan (rabbi and judge at the Jewish religious court) of Lashkevitz rabbi Eliezer Shatzberg, the president of the Jewish community Mr. Mechl Kutner, the Zaleshitche rabbi's wife rabbanit Perl Gotesman, rabbi Alterl Gotesman brother of the rabbi of Lashkevitz.
Rabbi Vainberger writes in his letter that every Jew from Zaleshtchike must keep in remembrance the yohrtsayt of the date on which the nazis slaughtered their Jewish victims."

The remarks between brackets are mine.
Hope this has helped you.
