After 1945 Breslau Germany became Wroclaw Poland. New chapters in Jewish history occurred in this period as well. But this group concerns itself with the city of Breslau , the 10th largest city in Germany and the 3rd most important German Jewish city after Berlin and Frankfurt Am Main before 1945. I include links here to online sources I am using to research Breslau family history, to Jewish community resources in present day Wroclaw, as well as to the excellent book "Jews and Other Germans" by Till van Rahden, which functions as a historical overview to Jewish life in this city from 1860-1925
