The idea to focus on Jewish travel-guiding services and genealogy emerged from years of studies of history of Polish Jews and the Holocaust. The sophistication of Polish-Jewish common past in Central Europe and history of the Holocaust is at present in the center of interest of Polish historians and society. The memory of 3,3 million Jewish population before the Second World War, which was to be erased by German Nazi and Russian Communist Regime is only now gradually coming back and is being incorporated into history of Poland. Jewish genealogy travels and interest in Poland as a country are very helpful in researching and reshaping historical memory and contemporary Polish-Jewish relations. For years Polish territory was linked with topic of Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camps only. Having the deepest respect and great knowledge about places connected with the Holocaust, we also try to tell the story of the rich world of Central European Jewry before the War. Although it was largely annihilated by the German Nazis, it partially survived in our historical memory of that time. Shtetls, synagogues, cemeteries, beit ha midrashes are dotting Polish landscape and bear the reminiscence of Rabbinical sages, individual families, rich religious and political life of Polish Jews. All of that is waiting here to be re-discovered, preserved and brought back to public interest and heritage.
Majority of our tours and projects are supervised and led personally by Tomasz Cebulski. Nevertheless, sometimes guided tours through Cracow, its environs and Auschwitz-Birkenau are led by our highest quality cooperatives. All our guides are certified professionals who have rich international university background and share deep interest in Jewish history of Poland.
