Translator's comment:

I have added all the names of the people in the photographs which appear only in Hebrew or Yiddish captions! I apologize in advance for any spelling error I might have had and will correct if be advised of such error.

I believe that the order of the people is usually from right to left, but in most of the photographs it is unfortunately not mentioned. I also added source of the image when was not available in English and the date it was taken, when available but not mentioned in the English caption. My hope is to scan all the photographs and post in the Internet in the near future. I welcome any volunteers who agree to help me in this important task. “There is a whole world behind each name”... Every martyr had a name and a face and a history... The photograph which captured it commemorated the person for eternity.
