Originally created in 1991, by Gary Mokotoff, to help genealogists trace their Jewish ancestors through pre holocaust Europe, Where Once We Walked: A Guide to the Jewish Communities Destroyed in the Holocaust is a primary resource for finding original town and community names across Europe for all types of researchers, including non-Jewish genealogists. Perhaps no other area in the world has seen as much political change and border movements as Central and Eastern Europe. Germany didn't exist until the late 1800s, Czechoslovakia didn't exist until the end of World War I, lost territory to Russia at the end of World War II, and was dissolved into two different countries by 1993. One example shows the "original" town of Lemberg, Austria changing names three time (four names) in just 85 years; Lember, Austria became Lwów, Poland then L'vov, USSR and finally L'viv, Ukraine. Even experienced geographers would have trouble keeping up with these names changes; especially when examining towns by the thousands. The WOWW Companion enables the reader to identify towns and villages and even to create a rough map of the areas of central and eastern Europe detailed in WOWW by using precision longitude and latitude mapping technology. Published in 1995, approx. 7x10 inches, and in fine condition.
