JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen new web site about Jewish cemeteries in Poland #general

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before but there is a new web
site with descriptions, photos and video of Jewish cemeteries and
synagogues in Poland. The web site is located at
http://www.kirkuty.xip.pl/indexang.htm.

The videos are being uploaded to YouTube and embedded into the pages of
the other web site, which means you can find the collection on YouTube at
http://www.youtube.com/kaurismakipl. One of the videos on YouTube was
uploaded four days ago so it looks like they are still adding material.

This group is covering a long list of towns. The list is at
http://www.kirkuty.xip.pl/fotogalerie.htm. Each town has a description
in Polish and some photos. Some of the towns also have a link to an English
translation. The entry for Bielsk Podlaski has an English translation,
photos and video of the cemetery there. The entry for Bransk has a long
description in Polish with several photos but no English translation or
video.

I think many readers will find this site interesting. I wonder if there
might be some way for JewishGen or affiliated groups to cooperate with
them.

I have no connection with the creators of the site.
