Do You or Your Family Have Roots in Poland?

Many of Poland’s cities and towns are, today, endeavouring to preserve their Jewish history and heritage.

Some are now turning to the ASPJ to assist them in their task of collecting memoirs, photographs and other documents.

To encourage their endeavours, our website can be used to assist them in contacting former residents or their descendants.
