write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.

Subject: Where to send Holocaust survivor testimony (af idish 

A colleague of mine, a writer named Susan Meyer, recently wrote to say 
that since the publication of her novel _Black Radishes_, set in 
Nazi-occupied France, she'd been contacted by several Holocaust survivors 
seeking her help in making their stories public.  She's trying to find 
organizations that collect Holocaust survivor testimony.

I know that this isn't quite a Yiddish-related question, but it occurred 
to me that in connection with numerous Mendele postings having to do with 
Yiddish memoirs and yizkerbikher, maybe some readers of Mendele might be 
able to offer suggestions to my colleague, and if there are any such 
suggestions I'll pass them along to her.

A hartsikn dank,

Larry Rosenwald
