Poland -- Big New Book on Polish Jewish Heritage

A new book on the post-war fate of Poland's Jewish heritage has been published in Poland. It looks as though it may only be available in Polish.

Here's the announcement from the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland:

It is with joy that we inform that thanks to the support of the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland a book by Professor Kazimierz Urban was published by Nomos Publishing House in Cracow under the title ""Cmentarze żydowskie, synagogi i domy modlitwy w Polsce w latach 1944-1966 (Jewish Cemeteries, Synagogues and Houses of Prayer in Poland, 1944-1966)".

The book, composed of original Polish documents concerning mostly the fate of the property of the prewar Jewish communities, is a large, 800 pages wide publication. It is a perfect source of information for the scientific research, and a good lecture for all those interested in the history of Polish Jews after the World War II.

To order the book please contact the Foundation at fodz@fodz.pl.
