The Turobin Yizkor Book was written by former residents of Turobin, Poland. Some who left the town before the war wrote articles and essays about the rich Jewish life in town: the people, the dreamers, the doers, the ultra-religious, the secular, the Zionists, the socialists…The various institutions in town, the charities and the help societies for the needy. The handful of survivors wrote in chilling details about the Holocaust and the destruction of the Jewish community during the Nazi occupation.
