Jolanta and her team are actively involved in Jewish life in Poland. They worked closely with Chris Schwartz, a founder of Galicia Jewish Museum. Jewish life and culture is slowly rebuilding in Poland.
The E.L. Tour Company has been in operation since 1999. The company has an emphasis on Jewish history and culture through a Polish lens.
Poland was the epicenter of Jewish life before World War II. Many American Jews, as well as Jews from around the world, can trace their ancestry to Poland. Since the early 2000s there has been a Renaissance of Jewish culture in Poland. Many towns have restored synagogues and historical sites.
The E.L. Tours Company has been at the forefront of this resurgence. European Legacy Tours focuses on providing guests with an experience unlike any other. With European Legacy Tours you can trace your ancestry and build your family history by researching extensive birth records, census data, school diaries and other data.
