Vienna (JTA) — A leading New
York businessman has initiated
an effort to sustain Jewish life in
Poland and other Eastern Euro-
"We have a small window of
opportunity to save the legacy of
a thousand years of vibrant Jew-
ish life in Poland before it is lost
forever," said businessman
Ronald S. Lauder, who recently
established the Ronald S. Laud-
er Genealogy Project at the Jew-
ish Historical Institute of Poland
"What a tragedy it would be
if the legacy of one of history's
greatest, most highly developed
Jewish communities were final-

cal material long thought lost or
destroyed has been found in East-
ern European archives. The find-

never been cataloged.
Before World War II, more
than 3 million Jews lived in
Poland. Only 10 percent survived.

20,000 Jews live in Poland.
"Fifty years after the war's end,
many survivors, their children
and grandchildren are returning
to Poland looking for their fami-
ly history, their ancestral roots,"
said Yale Reisner, who will direct
"This is a most exciting pro-
gram, designed to assist re-
searchers and privately
interested individuals in redis-
covering their family histories
and the complexity and richness
of Jewish life in Poland and be-
yond." Mr. Reisner said.
Some reunions of Jews sepa-
rated during the war already
have occurred, he added.
