General collection information
This database contains details extracted from index books and registration forms for Polish Jewish survivors, compiled by the Central Committee of Polish Jews, Department of Statistics. The indexes contain only basic information; the registration forms include each survivor’s date of birth, mother’s name, address in 1939, postwar address, and ghettos and camps of imprisonment during the Holocaust. The original records are held by the Żydowski Instytut Historyczny im. Emanuela Ringelbluma (Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute) in Poland.
The Central Committee of Polish Jews (Centralny Komitet Żydów w Polsce - CKŻP) was established as a state-sponsored political representation of Jews in Poland at the end of World War II on November 12, 1944. It provided care and assistance to Jews who survived the Holocaust and represented all CKŻP registered Polish Jews in dealing the Polish government. By January, 1946, CKŻP registered 86,000 survivors from across Poland. At the end of the summer, the number of registrants was around 205,000. CKŻP also assisted refugees from the Soviet Union who were able to come to Poland thanks to the Polish-Soviet repatriation agreement.
