Welcome to our website

We’re glad to have you!

It is the objective of the GJH & GS to preserve the legacy of Jewish history and culture in Gombin, Poland, the town of our ancestral families.  We will preserve the record of our family’s roots and genealogy so that the history of 300 years of Jewish life in Gombin will not have been destroyed by the Holocaust.

The preserved record will serve as a basis for the education of current Gombiners now living all over the world and all future generations.

Keep up-to-date on our ongoing and past projects, meetings, programs, activities, and even conference calls!

What's New with Gombin

Karczewska History Title Page The Jewish Community of Gąbin, 1918-1945. Magdalena Karczewska. Master’s Thesis, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, 2004

Jewish settlement on Gąbin dates to the Middle Ages, and the Jewish Kehila (community) was already established in the 13th Century. That community was destroyed during World War II, but its history lives on. This Master’s Thesis represents the most comprehensive and scholarly historical overview of Jewish Gąbin, with a particular focus on the 20th Century, inter-war period. The original was written in Polish and translated into English by Leon Zamozc.
