About Us

 
The formation of The World Society of Częstochowa Jews and Their Descendants was one of the lasting legacies of our FIrst Reunion in Częstochowa in April 2004.
 
The World Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation which grants the Society tax-exempt status under the United States Department of the Treasury and the United States Internal Revenue Service. Our organisation is exempt from Federal Income Tax under the IRS code and all charitable contributions to us, be they donations, bequests, devises, transfers or gifts, are tax deductible in the USA.
 
The World Society acts a clearing house for information and education. Its purpose is to foster and support research into the history of Częstochowa Jewry - their vital contribution to the commerce, industry, and culture of Częstochowa and beyond.
 
Częstochowa, the most sacred Roman Catholic city in Poland, and home of the Black Madonna, has for centuries been a pilgrimage site for millions of Catholics.
 
Before World War II, about a third of the population ware Jews (almost 40,000). After the Germans invaded Poland in September 1939, they first confined the Jews to a ghetto and then deported them to the Treblinka death camp. Some 6,000 survived in HASAG, a forced labor camp on the outskirts of the city. Today, there are fewer than 100 Jews in the city.
 
The World Society of Częstochowa Jews and Their Descendants is a focal point for all seeking contact with other Czestochowers.
 
In the immediate future, our major projects are:
  • the restoration of the Częstochowa Jewish Cemetery, and
  • the creation of a Częstochowa Jewish Museum
We invite all Jews, who can trace their roots to the city of Częstochowa and its surroundings, to contact us either directly or through our Yahoo email group. We are a worldwide family comprising four generations - we warmly invite you to become a member of our family.
