Description
   This unprecedented publication contains the first officially-sanctioned lists of Jewish- related documents within Polish State Archives at both the state and town (local) levels, and within archives in the formerly Polish areas of Ukraine and Belarus.

It provides updated information on the holdings of Warsaw's famous Jewish Historical Institute and the concentration camp archives at Majdanek and Auschwitz-Birkenau. Additionally, it offers succinct entries on more than two dozen Polish cities where major Jewish communities once thrived, and features several specific chapters contributed by foremost experts.

Produced by an American genealogist renowned for her expertise with Eastern European archives, Jewish Roots in Poland is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of full-color photographs, both new and old, detailed color maps and examples of archival documents, and beguiling antique postcards from the author's personal collection.

Seven years in the making, Jewish Roots in Poland is much more than an essential aid for genealogists or with its thorough 30-page bibliography, Holocaust scholars and historians. In a more general way, it is must reading for everyone who understands the importance of remembering the three million Polish Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Never before has there been a book about the Jews of Poland like this one. A major monument to their memory, it is a work that belongs in every Jewish home.
