The Transfer – Deportation of Siret Jews

A few days ago, “The Jewish Files of Rădăuți” were released, a microcosm of the Jewish suffering in Romania: persecution, deportation, extermination.

Hanna Berger from Israel/USA directed my attention to Havah Ostfeld’s book “The Transfer”. It’s about the deportation of the Jews of Siret. The book, about 58 pages, is in Hebrew. Havah’s father and Hanna’s grandfather were brothers. Hanna (hannab54@verizon.net) is so generous to offer her assistance in translating this document. Thank you so much, Hanna!
