“This book is one of gladness and of pain. the editors are glad to publish the names of those who survived all the horrors, all the abominations of hatred and war…Everybody turning the leaves of this book should realize the significance of the fact that also above the will of the power which thought itself to be the strongest, there is a higher jurisdiction preventing the innocent from being entirelly exterminated…We have been scattered among the nations and we are left few in number. May the roll of Mtei Mispar- the counted remnant, be received by our bretheren in Eretz Yisrael and in the countries of the diaspora as a message, as a hand outstreched towards them which sends love and which is also awaiting and soliciting for the love missed ever so long” (Intro.)
