Stawiski Jewish Website

Stawiski Jewish Blog  




This website commerates my family and the Jewish community that once lived in Stawiski (Stavisk)Poland and that was destroyed during the Holocaust.  I hope it will also  serve as a meeting place for decedants, relatives and friends of that community.   It is open to all people of all faiths with Stawiski connections in order that together we can learn from the past good and awful and create together a better future.


You are invited to put your Stawiski related pictures, stories, links, searching for relatives messages etc. on this website and  on the connected blog.
