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!

Can anyone help at all? I'm trying to trace my great grandmother Annie (Chana) Eglash, she married Joseph Freedman from Poland and sadly died when she was 28. They lived in Stepney. I'm finding it really hard to trace her parents. Just wondered if it rings any bells at all? ...
Paula, have you looked on the Gombin Society webpage Gombinsociety.org It has lists of Gombin names, and lots of other information about people from Gombin (Gąbin) Poland. I believe there was once a Freedman family from GB involved in the Gombin Society, but before my time.
Paula - did Chana Eglash come from Gombin? And do you know whereabouts in Poland Joseph Freedman came from?

On 27 January 1945, 75 years ago Auschwitz was liberated.
When I was a little child, my father told me how his parents and his brother were murdered by the Nazis , he told me about Mengele, about the executions, about 6 years of suffering .
In loving memory of my father Abraham Mastbaum, who survived Auschwitz, Dora-Mittelbau, the Todesmarsch and Bergen-Belsen. My father did this video on April 2006, a few month before he died.

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.
