Remembering Dvinsk - Daugavpils, Latvia: Memorial Book of Dvinsk (Large Print / Hardcover)
Remembering Dvinsk is a compilation of three sources. First is a reprint of the 1965 book Dvinsk - The Rise and Decline of a Town by Yudel Flior, translated from the Yiddish by Bernard Sachs. Second is the translation of the 1975 class project In Memory of the Community of Dvinsk, to memorialize the Latvian town of Dvinsk by the 8th grade of the Kol Haverim Junior High School of Haifa; it is a fine collection of history, recollections of former residents, essays, historic photographs, and artwork by the students. Third is an appendix of historic photographs assembled by Eilat Gordin Levitan.
It is the desire of the Yizkor-Books-In-Print project of JewishGen.org that this new compilation of material in English serve as a fitting memorial for the Jewish Community of Dvinsk.
