Breslau Library

Valuable books from the collection of the former seminary library of the Breslau (Wroclaw) Rabbinical Seminary were relocated to Switzerland in the 1950s, through the efforts of the Federation of Jewish Communities. Today, they are in the care of the libraries of the Jewish communities of Geneva and Zurich and may be consulted there.
