Summary"Jews of Eastern Europe were targets of violence during the first half of the twentieth century. Survivors compiled memorial books to preserve historical, biographical, and cultural information. This collection provides a history of the memorial books and their cultural contexts; essays on Yizker books; key reviews (some translated from Yiddish); and a bibliographic overview of secondary sources" —Publisher
