You can contribute original writing to the SIG to be displayed here. We especially welcome articles on the following topics:
  • Danzig Jewish history

  • memoirs or interviews of Danzig Jews
  • rabbis and religion in Danzig
  • Danzig Jewish Community soon before and during the Holocaust
  • Danzig diaspora

If you are interested in contributing an article, please contact the SIG Coordinator. Please do not write the article until doing so, to ensure that the subject is appropriate and to avoid duplication.

If you know former Jewish residents of Danzig, please consider asking whether they would like to contribute memoirs or be interviewed, regardless of whether they wish to join the SIG Mailing List and participate in genealogical discussions (which they are extremely welcome to do, of course).
