The second Link is for Breslau which is now Wroclaw in Poland. These records are from Standesamt I in Breslau and includes civil registration. You will need to download a plug-in known as DjVu to see these documents online. It is a free plug-in and is safe on your computer.
These two links will probably bring a little joy into the hearts of many researchers!

A new Post From Adam Czmuchowski Mariahilf's Foster-children in Gross Tschansch and the Rossband Gravesite
This is the Day of the Dead in Poland. Similar but more religious than our "Halloween", which of course, is not a religious type of holiday. Wikipedia has a good explanation of this holiday. My aunt, who lives in Germany, was able to go to the front of the church this day to light a candle in remembrance of her husband who died not too long ago.

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.
