preservation, celebration and a little dash of Yiddish
We have hit the ground running in January with a frenzy of activity. We are fully focused on the project to build a stunning memorial on the site of the Brest-Litovsk Jewish cemetery with plans now coming together for an exciting fundraising campaign. We have a big year ahead. We are delighted you are with us on the journey as we begin 2024 and we look forward to moving forward through the year together.
This month we honour, acknowledge and celebrate our wonderful and hugely valued volunteers and we bring you a superb article on mapping the movements of European Jews through Yiddish.
All the best

Belarus ancestry and archives - we can help
The Together Plan has been helping people locate records in the Belarus archives for some years. There has never been a more exciting time for people to connect to personal history – or for that history to have a greater impact on world knowledge!
