A Bibliography of Kremenets Yizkor Books

This bibliography includes citations for the two primary Yizkor Books for Kremenets, as well as for a series of 18 booklets published by the Organization of Kremenets Emigrants between 1967 and 1982. All those booklets are in the possession of the Kremenets District Research Group. In addition, the list includes citations for Yizkor Books for several nearby towns that are closely associated with Kremenets—Brody, Pochayev, Shums'k (Szumsk), Vishnevets, and Yampol.

Booklets

From 1967 through 1982, the Organization of Kremenets Emigrants published a series of at least 18 booklets in Tel Aviv and distributed them to Kremenetsers worldwide through representatives in New York, Buenos Aires, and Winnipeg. Beginning with Booklet 16 in 1979, the title and content were changed to include emigrants from Shumsk (Szumsk, Shumskoye; 50 07 N / 26 07 E, 17.8 miles E of Kremenets) as well as Kremenets. Norm Kagan, whose father, William, was the New York representative of the Kremenets landsmanschaft, donated copies of Booklets 1, 2, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 18 to the CO-OP and to YIVO; Ron Doctor has donated Booklet 11; Peggy Pearlstein donated copies of Booklets 3 through 7, 9, and 13 from the collection of the U.S. Library of Congress; and Eileen Curtis donated a copy of Booklet 17. We now have originals or copies of the entire series of 18 booklets. The CO-OP has donated copies of all booklets to the U.S. Library of Congress and to YIVO.
