A PHOTO TOUR OF SHTETL UKRAINE AND BESSARABIA: CARPATHO-UKRAINE and NORTHERN BUKOVINA

Coffee-table photobook, comes on a DVD to read on your computer.

Book comes in three formats:

1) As a PDF file;

2) As a WORD file;

2) In a flip book, the program for which is included.

If you don't want a DVD, you can --- for $3 more --- get the book on a pen drive (particularly useful and cost-effective, if you wish to store something else on it). Just ask us to invoice the extra charge before paying!

This second volume consists of 987 pages, with 303 historical and 589 new photos (taken in the years 2019 - 2021). The photobook has been designed with the intent to show and inform the reader how Jewish heritage sights (and sites) in this part of Ukraine look like and what they can expect to see. Also provided are historical photos of interest, which show what Jewish life was like before the horrors of the Holocaust changed everything forever. Other sights of interest, which are not connected to Jewish history are also included. While not developed as a travel guide, those interested in visiting Ukraine will find this an invaluable resource, whether they're on a heritage tour or just want to sit at home and enjoy this glimpse into history. Especially valuable now that events in Ukraine might even result in the "new" photos becoming "obsolete". The table of contents below and the portion of the book's introduction will tell you what is covered in the E-book.
