Town Research: Jodłowa

by Russ Maurer

Clean-up and restoration of the Jewish cemetery in Jodłowa (Podkarpackie province of Poland, between Tarnów and Jasło) has begun, under the direction of the Foundation FPKT (http://www.fpkt.org/pl/) and with the participation of the Jodłowa civil authorities. In August 2012, it appeared that half or more of the cemetery had been cleared of weeds, leaves, and other debris, exposing 100 or so matzevot, many substantially intact. Inscriptions that could be seen were generally in quite good condition.

Plans for the near term include completing the clean-up, turning over the matzevot currently face down and cleaning them, and transcribing all inscriptions that can be read. Any descendants and researchers of Jodłowa wishing to know more about the project should contact me at rmaur@hawken.edu.


Gesher Galicia is a non-profit organization carrying out Jewish genealogical and historical research on Galicia, formerly a province of Austria-Hungary and today divided between southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The research work includes the indexing of archival vital records and census books, Holocaust-period records, Josephine and Franciscan cadastral surveys, lists of Jewish taxpayers, and records of Galician medical students and doctors - all added to our searchable online database. In addition, we reproduce regional and cadastral maps for our online Map Room. We conduct educational research and publish a quarterly research journal, the Galitzianer. Gesher Galicia is also organized for the purpose of maintaining networking and online discussion groups and to promote and support Jewish heritage preservation work in the areas of the former Galicia.
