This English translation of the memorial book, A City and the Dead; Zablotow Alive and Destroyed serves as a fitting memory to this destroyed Jewish community of the Ukraine. There is nothing left of the community except these memories of this once-vibrant community. The first-hand accounts contained in this book of the rich heritage and final destruction of the town's Jewish residents shall be not lost. This book will be of value to the descendants of the town's Jews as well as researchers.

No Jews remain in the town, and this book is a humble memorial and tribute to their memory, and to the heart-wrenching experiences of one of the blackest periods of human history.
