This book is the translation of the Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the destroyed Jewish Community of Podhajce, Ukraine, (in Hebrew: Sefer Podhajce) written by the former residents who survived the Holocaust (Shoah) or emigrated before the war. It contains the history of the community in addition to descriptions of the institutions (synagogues, prayer houses), cultural activities, personalities (Rabbis, leaders, prominent people, characters) and other aspects of the town. It also describes the events of the Shoah in the town and lists the victims. All information is either first-hand accounts or based upon first-hand accounts and therefore serves as a primary resource for either research and to individuals seeking information about the town from which their parents, grandparents or great-grandparents had immigrated; this is their history! The book was originally written in Yiddish in 1972 in Tel Aviv, translated into English by Jerrold Landau in the Yizkor Book Project of JewishGen, Inc. and published by the Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project.
