New Cracow Friendship Society, Inc.

We are sad to announce the passing of Larry Zellner.  He was
one of our founders, a dear friend, mentor and past president.

The New Cracow Friendship Society (NCFS) is a non-profit international Holocaust Survivor organization created in 1965 to unite survivors from Krakow* Poland and vicinity.  Joined by our common philosophy, survivors and now descendants from Krakow and the Polish Galicia Regions are continuing with the Society's many activities.

The purpose of the Society is clearly outlined in the Preamble of its constitution which states: "… unite Jewish Polish survivors of the district of Cracow, ... develop and elevate the mental and moral character of the people of our faith, … promote the principles of philanthropy, honor and patriotism ... strengthen our ties with our brethren throughout the world and particularly Israel, … help the poor and needy and bring cultural and social events to the members.” 

Foremost on the minds of the Society’s founders was the quest for perpetuating the memory of our martyrs and to teach the lessons of the Holocaust through education, philanthropic, and social activities. The Society strives to keep its unique family, friendship, and ancestry alive.

  In the fifty two years of the Society’s existence, we have built a framework of remembrance, commitment, and camaraderie. We are currently experiencing growth in our membership with descendants of Holocaust survivors.  

Our survivors welcome persons of holocaust era ancestry from the Polish Galicia Regions to join our Society.  Visit our membership page or Contact us by via e-mail for further assistance.
