History of Bialystok Jews

By Tomasz Wisniewski*

Tomasz Wisniewski, is a non-Jew, Polish journalist and historian living in Bialystok. He became an expert on the Jewish landmarks of Bialystok during his imprisonment in Poland, where he was jailed for dissident activities during the Communist regime in the 1980's.
The city of Bialystok was before the WW II the heart of the European Jewry, with approximately 50.000 Jews living there. Today only a dozen Jews live in Bialystok.
Wisniewski has dedicated years to the investigation of the Jewish Bialystok community; he collected and catalogued a large amount of historical documents, compiled information taken from cemeteries, old synagogues and ritual bathhouses.
Here you can find some links to his articles and investigations regarding this subject:
