Publication of the first volume of “Eleh Eskra,” a work in Hebrew containing the biographies of Jewish religious leaders in Europe who were killed by the Nazis during World War II, was announced today by Prof. Isaac Lewin of Yeshiva University on behalf of the Research Institute of Religious Jewry in New York.

The volume, which contains biographies of Jewish martyrs from Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Rumania, Czechoslovakia, Germany and Holland, is the first in a series. A second volume will appear this year.
