View the original Kletsk Yizkor Book, in Hebrew/Yiddish, in image form at the New York Public Library (NYPL). View the Table of Contents and the Name Index of the Kletsk Memorial Book Translation Project at JewishGen. 

All pages except the first are numbered with Hebrew digits. This numbering is translated to English and retained in the labeling of the images. Thus the second image on Plate ה is labeled “5.2"; the thumbnail image file is
“tn_5.2.jpg" while the full size image is “5.2.jpg".

Initially, the photos are presented in the same order as in the print book. As the captions and detail texts are translated and interpreted, the original order will be likely be modified for clarity in a web-based, rather than print presentation.
