    By Rabbi Elie Matusof in conjunction with Rabbi Shneur Zalman Berger

    The remarkable era of Post-World War II in the history of Chabad is chronicled in a newly released book “Hayetzia Marussia” (Exodus from Russia).

    The story begins with the extraordinary escape of Chassidim from Russia in 1946-47, continues with their transition to the DP camps, describes the eventual journey to France, and culminates with their   settlement in Eretz Yisrael, America, and other lands.

    The book describes Chabad life in the DP camps with its institutions and great personalities such as Reb Nissan Nemanov, Reb Peretz Mochkin, Rabbi Zalman Shimon Dvorkin, and Rabbi Avraham Eliyahu Plotkin.

    Included are original and hitherto unpublished  letters of the Rebbe Rayatz and detailed directives of his son-in-law  the Rebbe known then as Harav Hakadosh HaRaMash, as well as new documents, pictures,  and  episodes retrieved  from the archives of Rabbi Shlomo Matusof, A”H, Shliach of the Rebbe to Morocco, who in the DP camp served as assistant to the famous Mashpia and director of Yeshivas Tomchei Tmimim, Reb Nissan Nemanov.

    There are numerous pictures of individuals, and descriptions of the many Chabad families who lived through those experiences. A highlight of the book is the index at the end containing the names of each person cited or pictured throughout its pages.

    The book was printed in Eretz Yisroel and just arrived to New York and has generated much interest by the Chabad community around the world. It is available in all Judaica and book stores in Crown Heights as well as on line.

    Enjoy an aforementioned index, in which many families will find relatives who are mentioned or pictured in the book.
