The Association of Former Residents of Gura-Humora and Environs is an organization whose members are former residents of Gura Humorului, people whose ancestors came from Gura Humorului, and others who simply have an interest in the town.
The Association was formally established in 1988, and is based in Israel . The goal of the Association is to preserve the memory of the Jewish community of Gura Humorului through a number of actions:
The book has been published and is available in Hebrew, Romanian, German and English. The book has about two-hundred pages and includes some photos, essays on history, everyday life, culture, education, personal reminiscences, the World War II years, immigration to Israel, etc. There is also a very complete table of Jewish owned businesses and a Yizkor list. The Yizkor list is also to be found in the Holocaust Museum in Washington.
Copies of the book have been given to several universities and museums in Israel and to the Shoah Museum and the Library of Congress in Washington.
To obtain a copy of the book, contact the president of the Gura Humorului Society, Jacob Yurgrau. The cost of the book is $50 which includes shipping. I myself have not seen the actual book, just Xerox copies of most of the pages.
