This translation of the Memorial or Yizkor Book for the Jewish Community of Radzyn Poland. It contains first-hand accounts of rich life in community before the Shoah. There are eyewitness accounts of the murders of the Jews of Radzyn in the Holocaust .

The Jewish community in Radzyn Podlaski located in the Lublin district of Poland can be dated back to the 16th century. In 1827 there were 875 Jews in the town and in 1921 more than half of the total 4,833 population was Jewish. The Jewish congregation of the Shtetl consisted mainly of merchants, shoemakers, tailors, old clothes dealers, watchmakers, tinsmiths, hat makers, draymen and peddlers. In the 19th Century, Radzyn became famous among the Jews of Poland as a center of Torah learning and following World War I vigorous Zionist activities flourished. In 1939-1944 it all came to a sudden end in the Shoah when 4,000 Jews of Radzyn and the vicinity were murdered by the German Nazis. Today there are no Jews left in the town. This book serves as a memorial to that now vanished culture, community and individuals.

The book contains all the photographs and images and maps of the origiinal Hebrew and Yiddish Yizkor Book.
