Is there a way or institution one can find a persons pre-war address in

Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.

If the person lived in Warsaw and was a telephone subscriber, his address
can be found in the 1938/9 Warsaw telephone directory. The Library of

Perhaps there are similar volumes for other towns, but I don't know. Even in
Warsaw, the small size of the telephone directory is witness to the fact
that owning a telephone line was far >from universal at the time.
