Contributions to all these lists are solicited. The rules are: 1) You must have the NAME of the person killed. If all that is known is HOW MANY were killed, this will be acceptable. 2) You must have a DATE. Day-month-year is preferred, but month-year or year-only is acceptable. 3) You must have a LOCATION. Town-nation is best, but nation-only is acceptable 3) You must REFERENCE your contribution. 4) Please follow the format as you see it above. nb: I am not, at this time, compiling a list of Jews killed for their faith. To list the six million names from the Holocaust of World War II alone would be too much, and beyond comprehension. They are NOT forgotten! Neither are the martyred Baha'is in Iran, nor the Muslim/Christian/Jew problems current in the Mid-East.....nor the Muslim/Hindu troubles, nor the........well, add your own here.
