summary The current paper presents the experience of mapping pre-war Jewish communities in central Poland during a period of intensive social and cultural transformations. The initial analytical framework, provided thanks to the GIS database and concatenation of attributes coming from various sources, makes some initial observations and conclusions possible. It confirms the thesis that Jewish communities in pre-war Poland may be considered an example of a self-organising society, one which could be considered a prototype of contemporary postmodern cultural complexity. The current study provides the initial framework to map the morphology and spatial distribution of the complexity of everyday culture of use of space proper to this extremely diverse group.
