Kevin Alan Brook | 155 comments "Our People: Discovering Lithuania's Hidden Holocaust"
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... (ISBN 9781538133033)
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... (ISBN 9781538133040)

is the forthcoming English translation of
Mūsiškiai, first published in Lithuanian per
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... (ISBN 9786090122082)
and translated into Russian per
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... (ISBN 9785171071776)

1. Through combination, the reviews that appear on its Lithuanian and Russian pages should be copied to the English pages.

2. The co-author's name Efraim Zuroff needs to be added to the Lithuanian and Russian pages.

3. The other author's name Rūta Vanagaitė incorrectly reads "Vanagaite Rūta" (with the second letter in her first name looking like ampersand pound 363, and the order of names is incorrect) on the English pages and currently points to the wrong profile page for this author.

Kevin Alan Brook | 155 comments Thank you for addressing the above issues.

4. I just found something else. Its Polish translation "Nasi. Podróżując z wrogiem" @ https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... (ISBN 9788380154261) also needs to be linked with its other editions.

5. The Polish translator's name Krzysztof Mazurek should be added to the Polish page only.

6. "Ruta Vangaite" has an incorrect spelling for her last name on the Polish page.

Kevin Alan Brook | 155 comments 7. Another discovery. Its Swedish translation "Vårt folk : en resa genom den litauiska förintelsen" https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... (ISBN 9789188729187) has a review of its own to combine with the ratings of the other editions, through cross-linking,

8. Add name of Swedish translator Stefan Lindgren to Swedish page only.

Kevin Alan Brook | 155 comments Items 4 thru 8 are still awaiting fixing and combining.

If you will be handling item 4, be aware that ISBN 9788380154261 has the following set for it:
Original Title = Journey with the enemy
but the book's correct original title in any language is:
Original Title = Mūsiškiai
so I imagine you might have to change the Polish page (9788380154261)'s Original Title before combining? or at least watch that it doesn't override Mūsiškiai after combining
