Poland, partner of the Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries project

110 fragments have been identified so far in the Jagellonian Library of the University of Cracow and in Czartoryski Museum in Cracow. The project has started as collaboration between the Department of Jewish Studies of the Jagellonian University, the Jagellonian University Library and the EPHE in Paris, under the responsibility of Dr Monika Jaglarz, Jagellonian Library. A systematic search for the fragments is projected in the ecclesiastical archives in Cracow, in University, Public Library, and Ossoli_ski National Institute Library in Wroclaw (where several dozens of fragments have already been noted) and Warsaw and, if the access is granted, in Archbishopric archives in Gniezno and Tarnow.
