The Yizkor Book captures the history of Zinkov in good times and bad, of vibrant life in the town, and of the efforts by some to make aliyah to Israel or to depart for the west. Describing the living town of Zinkov – however briefly – brings into focus what was lost during the nightmare years when the Jews in Zinkov were systematically murdered, bringing over 300 years of history to an end. The Zinkov Committee understood that it is imperative for personal accounts of this dark period be documented, remembered and recounted, and this is why the book was written - and why we, the project coordinators undertook to translate it.

This Yizkor Book serves as a memorial to all the victims of the Shoah from Zinkov.
