He has also written me about a book from author Tomasz Wisniewski, a Polish historian of Jewish life in Poland. He has written three books about this topic and is considered an expert in this field. He has written over 100 articles about the Jews living in the Bialystok region. He has expanded his research to include research in Israel. His desire is to preserve the richness and the memory of the Jewish culture and to bring an understanding to the Polish people.
One of his books is titles Jewish life in Eastern Europe before 1939. Published 1992 in Bialystok.
He has translated some of his father's works for me and has allowed me to share this with you.
Since a past civilization is lacking visible tracks of monuments, I decided to search for other tracks. Unfortunately - nobody of the current residents has photographs from before 1939. In memory of old people live only the names of the Jews, which at that time ruled in the city. On many documents a signature of last Rabin Ruzhan I.

But! Now I am sharing a link that is made public by the Polish archives: http://www.archiwa.gov.pl/pl/component/content/article/63-aktualnosci/3539-uatwienia-w-korzystaniu-z-zasobu-archiwow-pastwowych-od-dzi.html . This link is of course all in the Polish language. And for those like me, who don't know Polish, do a little "Google translate" and you will get the jist of the story. It's wonderful news. And I can't wait till this all transpires. I will keep you posted as I hear more that can be shared!
