"Countless men and women around the world today think of themselves as "Bialystokers," whether by birth or inheritance. In recent years, growing numbers of them have taken the trouble to make their way to northeastern Poland to visit - or revisit - the region that has been called "the heart of European Jewry," This Guide for Yesterday and Today is for them, as well as for students everywhere of the lost Jewish heritage of Poland.

The city of Bialystok alone counted at least 50,000 Jews, and refugees from the German invasion of Western Poland nearly tripled that number by November 1939. Today, only half a dozen Jews live in Bialystok...This ... book, which contains: the history of Białystok, Tykocin, and 30 nearby towns and villages; tours of Białystok by foot and auto to suit various time schedules; individual names and dates from cemeteries and and an old guidebook; a chronology of Jewish life in Białystok, starting in the 15th century; short biographies of notable Białystok Jews; 77 photographs and 25 maps...
