The Yizkor Memorial Book “tells the story of the Jews of Zychlin, their history, their affairs, their joys and their sorrows. The book was written and edited in Hebrew and Yiddish by Zychliner[s] who remember with deep affection their beloved hometown that is no more.” (Preface, Sefer Zychlin)
The memorial book Sefer Zychlin was originally published in Tel Aviv in 1974 by the Zychliner Organization of Israel and America. Three sections were previously translated and are available on the JewishGen.org website.
