The London Yizkor Project

The LYP was initiated by Lois Weiner Lowe z”l and after her death
in 1985, was continued by her husband Danny Lowe z”l (who died in
1990). The Project was developed to link Londoners (current and past)
to their family members who perished in the Shoah. With Danny’s
untimely death, this project lay dormant for many years. Because of its
importance to both the London and greater Jewish communities, the
Project has been revitalized under new (and old) leadership,


Revisiting those family lists now, it is evident that not all families
were interviewed and much more detail is needed. As information has
been received by these original survivor families, it has also been
fascinating to discover the links between those families - relatives and
friends who sponsored some of these families, as well as the past and
current familial relationships in London.

New forms have been developed by Diane Goldstein and Judy
Silver to ensure that the London link is made. If you were born in, have
lived in or are currently living in London – and have family members
who perished in the Shoah (even if they are 1 or 2 generations removed
from you), then you too should be part of the LYP. The name of each
person who perished in the Shoah will be entered into the data base at
Yad Vashem (www.YadVashem.org).

We encourage families - including child survivors, or new arrivals
to London (over the last 24 years) to be part of this initiative. The
London Yiskor Project is in a data base format. After this task is
completed, it will be easier for individual families to develop or add to
their own ‘family genealogical projects’.

Please contact
Gloria Gilbert at gloriagilbert@sympatico.ca; 519-657-3770 or
Judy Silver at judy.silver@gmail.com; 519-858-9272
for further information.
