- Removal of Databases Our
databases are now in the process of being moved to the main JewishGen site.
This will enable the names in all databases to be searched by a single
click. We have no idea when the data will appear on JewishGen, but we hope
it will be soon. Unfortunately, the kehilalinks server doesn't have the CPU
(processing) power to handle database searches, and we have no option other
than to move sites.
- Krakow Survivors One
of our biggest databases (over 10,000 names) of those who survived the
Holocaust and were either born in Krakow, lived in Krakow after the war, or
else owned property in Krakow.

Directory webpages have been converted into searchable databases.
This is now more user-friendly, is quicker to download, and allows one to
search the individual's plus his parents' surnames.
Refugees in Vilna List of 175 Krakow Jews who fled to Vilna in ~1939.
- Feldblyum Collection Collection

- New Hebrew section. The main menu now has a link to
our Hebrew section. There are numerous Hebrew documents dealing with Krakow
which we would like to make available on this site. Translation of such
documents is an immense task and beyond the scope of our many volunteers, so
we are faced with the task of omitting these documents completely, or else
making it available in Hebrew. Lilly Haber and Miriam Romm have been
instrumental in getting this Hebrew section started. (We also have many
Hebrew-speaking viewers, and this section will be of prime benefit to them).
We intend to add a Polish section for our Polish viewers in the near future.
- Postcards from Krakow
Several pre-WWII cards donated by S. Leistner Bloch
Status List of 2,500 names of Jews living in Krakow c1942. See page for
