During the recent 36th International IAJGS Conference on Jewish Genealogy,
IAJGS President Marlis Humphrey announced that the 2018 IAJGS conference
will be held in Warsaw Poland-dates will announced shortly. Two of the
partners in the Warsaw Conference are the POLIN Museum and the Jewish
Historical Institute. The conference will be held in the POLIN Museum of
the History of Polish Jews. The POLIN Museum has launched a new smartphone
and tablet travel app for Jewish Warsaw. It is available on both IOS and
Android platforms. The app is called "Warsaw, Varshe" - referring to the
Yiddish name for the Polish capital. To access the app go to:

The application is available at both the App Store and Google Play. This is
a perfect way to start to learn about Jewish Warsaw in anticipation of
attending the 2018 IAJGS conference.

Jewish Heritage Europe wrote an article about this which may be found at :

I have no further information regarding the 2018 IAJGS conference. When more
information is available the IAJGS Board will make the information available.
