The Cracow Telephone Directory, for the year 1939.

 An extraordinarily valuable resource for genealogical research. In addition to Cracow itself, the directory includes telephone listings for many towns in the surrounding region. e.g. Kielce, Oswiecim, Radomsk, Tarnow, etc. Scores of smaller hamlets and villages also feature, often with just a handful of telephone subscribers - even at times, just one or two. - Jewish names appear regularly. Entries include a personal name, occupation, street address, and telephone number. A business directory appears at the end.

    Cracow is Poland's largest city after Warsaw. In 1939, 60,000 Jews lived there, constituting some 25% of the city's total population. Following the German occupation of September, 1939, all Jewish community organizations were forcibly dismantled, a Judenrat was set up, followed by a ghetto and then deportations to extermination camps. Cracow was the capital of Nazi-occupied Poland. Needless to say, its Jews were doomed.
