While a Jewish community no longer exists in present-day Dukla, the memory of Dukla’s former Jewish population is still kept alive, both by Poles within Dukla itself, and also among the descendants of Dukla Jews living around the world.

From 2000 to 2019, Phyllis Kramer (z”l) developed and maintained this Dukla KehilaLink. Phyllis and her “Team Zmigrod” did a wonderful job documenting and sharing information about this shtetl. Starting in July 2021 Jeff Alexander and Phil Ross are trying to fill Phyllis’s shoes by updating and revising this KehilaLink. Please contact Phil Ross for anything related to Dukla.
