Odessa, an Israeli nationwide organization,
and the Israeli Veterans Union have sent a letter of thanks
to the Cherney Fund. The Fund's recent projects made it possible
for many WWII veterans to receive spa treatments and for their
clubs to be properly equipped.
Also the Fund has helped sponsor the
publication of a number of books commemorating the Jewish
heroes of the World War Two, including a book by a retired
Corporal F.Sverdlov, as well as L.Berstein's Sixty Years After:
Odessa's Heroic Defenders. In WWII, Mr. Berstein had commanded
a platoon of Ukrainian partisans and has now written about
many Jewish fighters whose stories had never been told.
