Dear colleagues,

I'm at present translating reminiscences of former prisoners of ghettos and concentration camps. The text abounds in Jewish names and surnames.

Does anybody know of a good online dictionary, some kind of a directory or just an exhaustive list of Jewish first names and surnames?

Maybe there are any Litvaks among you who know how the names of Litvaks are spelt?

Best regards,

Diana
