The Central Jewish Library (CJL) is a digital version of the collections of the Jewish Historical Institute. The mission of the CJL is to make all collections of the JHI available and also, by placing them in a historical context, to create working tools for historians, genealogists and people interested in the culture and history of Jews in Poland. The CJL’s collections include the Ringelblum Archive registered by UNESCO as a part of Memory of the World Program. The collections available at the Central Jewish Library were edited by the Institute’s academic staff and the Digitization Department.
