Austrian Genizah

The Hebrew manuscript fragments being found in book bindings in Austria are receiving loving attention from a group of Austrian scholars. Their work is described here. Their website includes photos of many fragments. And I just noticed that they have published a book titled Fragmenta Hebraica Austriaca. An online version is available for purchase, and according to the TOC, it includes one article in English, by Yoav Rosenthal on a new fragment of Megilat Taanit (which is apparently to be included in Vered Noam's forthcoming English book).
