The Jews of Kraków and its Surrounding Towns

Sefer Zicharon

A Sefer Zicharon contains the Hebrew names of numerous deceased individuals, and was used as a supplement in the recitation of Yizkor in the synagogue. An old Sefer Zicharon from Kraków exists, and the names have been extracted and listed in the following table. The date of this book is not yet known. Most of these names do not have surnames, but some do have a date of death inscribed in the book's margin. The actual page can be seen by clicking on the appropriate link. [Bracketed] names are the individuals' acronyms.
