In tribute to the memory of
the community of Lutzk. in
Poland, whose entire Jewish
population was murdered by
the Nazis, the United Lutzker
Organization of America has is-
sued an impressive, 610-page
volume, in which are recalled
the activities of individuals and
organizations in Lutzk.
The large book. in Hebrew
and Yiddish texts. was pub-
lished by Irgun Yotzey Lutzk
Be'Israel in Tel Aviv, Israel.
I. B. Finkel, of the JFD Elec-
tronics Corp., 6101 16th Ave.,
Brooklyn 4, N. Y.. is chairman
of the United Lutzker Organi-
zation of America, the contri-
butions of whose members, the
relatives of the Lutzker sur-
vivors, made it possible for the
organization to produce this
soul-stirring memorial.
Only a handful of Lutzker
people remain and these
survivors now feel that they
have paid a final and lasting
tribute_ to their kinsmen,
whose history of life and
work in Lutzk dates back 600
years.
Published under the title
"Sefer Lutzk," "the Lutzk Vol-
ume," this book is a collective
work of more than 100 authors
in Israel, the United States,
Brazil, Poland, France, Canada
and Mexico.
Many of the authors are no
longer among the living, some
of them having perished dur-
ing the bestial Nazi rule. The
. editors are grateful that they
were able to acquire their

articles for perpetuation in
"Sefer Lutzk."
The organization has express-
ed gratitude to I. B. Finkel for
his generous gifts which made
the publication of this book
possible.
In unfolding the history
the Lutzk community, this
contains memorial tr .

Supplemente•evidence of
the Nazi brutalities, by the ex-
pulsion of the Lutzk Jews into
extermination ghettoes, by pog--
roms and humiliations, this vol-
ume supplements Lamentations
in its spirit of mourning.
Tracing the Nazi trek across
the areas where millions of
Jews lived in Eastern Europe,
later to be led to the slaughter
houses, "Sefer Lutzk" is an im-
portant addition to the material
that is accumulating as a col-
lective indictment of Nazism.
Creative efforts as they were
pursued by the Lutzker also
are enumerated, thus making
this memorial volume a- thor-
ough history of a perished
community.
