Subject: [jri-pl] Database of cemeteries in Poland
Visit the JRI-Poland web site at http://www.jri-poland.org
This Polish web site has a database of cemeteries in Poland of all periods:
There are four categories of burial places: local cemetery, war cemetery,
collective grave, or single tomb.
For each burial place in the database, the information includes an address,
sometimes pictures and sometimes list of names.
The site is owned by the Council for the Protection of Memory of Struggle
and Martyrdom in Warsaw.
There is no English interface now, but you can use Google Translate to find
your way. In particular, you can narrow the search (szukaj) to a given
region (province, district, commune or town), to a given nationality (e.g.
Jewish) or to a given period of history.
Altogether, there are now 5355 entries, including 78 especially marked as
