Steven Gershman, the son of Morris Gershman, a Holocaust survivor from Mezirich who passed away in 1996, is a personal friend of Israel Zinman , wrote the following: "Allowing this book to be placed on the Internet is the culmination of Mr. Zinman's many years of hard work trying to perpetuate the memory of those Jews from the town of Mezirich who were murdered by the Nazis. In my opinion, it is a living tribute to Israel Zinman, a truly incredible human being, a real 'mentsch'. Furthermore, this effort would not have been made possible without the invaluable assistance of Fred Apel, who scanned the book and photos without remuneration and on his own time. He is also a real 'mentsch'.
Mr. Gershman has informed me that there is a video cassette that accompanies
the book. For information, contact him at
