Bardejov Jewish Life in Pictures and Words

The Bardejov JewisBook Rendering4h Preservation Committee team is currently working on a new publication: a book titled Bardejov Jewish Life in Pictures and Words. The book focuses on pictures and documents that tell the stories of Jewish Bardejov before, during, and after the Holocaust.

The book will include historical pictures as well as those of Bardejovers after the war as they started to build their new lives in Israel, the USA, Canada, or other places around the world. We are also including documents such as immigration records, Bardejov ID cards, letters, diplomas or any other certificate, paper, or photo that can tell a story about the lives that were lost or those that were saved.

Progress on the new book is accelerating and we encourage everyone to share pictures and/or documents as soon as possible. If you have any information you would like to share for possible inclusion in the book, please e-mail us at
