A few days ago, I was delighted to receive a note from Sandrine Rebibo of Yad Vashem's Reference and Information Service. I had submitted corrections to Pages of Testimony some time ago, and her message informed me that the updates will eventually appear.
The note, read in part:
We have accepted the corrections you suggested as follows:
- Record regarding Bookbinder Talalay Luba - we have corrected the victim's first name to Luba instead of Lova.
- Record regarding Talalay Gita - we have corrected the places in the record to Mogilev, Belorussia instead of Mogilev Podolski, Ukraine.
- Record regarding Talalay Leib - we have changed the submitter's status (not a survivor instead of survivor).
Please note that the Internet version of our database is only updated periodically, so it may take some time for your correction to appear online.
We appreciate your assistance in perfecting our system.
I have thanked Sandrine for her assistance.
