Yizkor Books Online

"The New York Public Library's Digital Yizkor Book Viewer provides page-turner technology to read or consult crystal-clear digital images of complete Holocaust memorial books, exactly as issued. 650 of the 700 postwar yizkor books at The New York Public Library are accessible online in their entirety." Yizkor books are memorial volumes published by survivors of the Holocaust in Hebrew or Yiddish about Jewish communities in Eastern Europe in which the victims are listed and commemorated and the town's Jewish history is told. They are based on a centuries-old traditional Jewish practice of publishing memorial books. To view the online collection users need to install the DjVu plugin.
