Last month the Pabianice Landsmanshaft launched the new
translation of the Pabianice Yizkor book. It was held at the home of
a descendant of a Pabianice family. One hundred people with links to
Pabianice attended. There were readings from the book as well as a reading
of the late Bronka Light’s journal by her daughter, Eva, including evocative
stories about her life in Pabianice before the war.
The first sections of the Pabianice book are now online at:
