Summary "Numerous Holocaust Memoirs recount the horrors that individuals witnessed and endured during the Nazis' reign. Less well known are the post-World War II yizkors, collective memoirs written by survivors to memorialize a home village purged or destroyed by Nazis. The Hebrew word yizkor translates as "he shall remember" and also refers to a prayer for the dead. The Life and Death of a Polish Shtetl, the memorial for the town of Strzegowo, was collected and edited in 1951. Its stories are simple yet they evoke considerable emotional turmoil. Some are tales of torture, cultural destruction, and death. Others are remembrances of what the little town was like before it was invaded by the Nazis. Because there is no longer a Jewish population living in Strzegowo, this book is an important record of what was lost."--Jacket.
