I visited Wroclaw, Poland in May this year.
It was formerly known as Breslau, when it was part of Germany.
This city boasts 11 Nobel Prize winners, 4 of whom were Jewish.
The composer Johannes Brahms was awarded an honorary doctorate by the university and wrote the Academic Festival Overture in return!
A kehilalink is a set of webpages about a Jewish community, which contains information, photos, stories or memoirs, written by volunteers. Wroclaw is the latest of my eleven kehilalinks I have written. The next is Lublin.

The kehilalink network is part of JewishGen.org, the largest Jewish Genealogical organisation, based in New York.
