Question about birth records and history as Breslau

I was interested in visiting Wroclaw (formerly Breslau) to find information about my mother who was born and raised there during pre-WW2. I also wanted to know if anyone could give places to see or historical sites that pre-date the war. Thanks.

BEFORE visiting there try doing some preliminary research by writing to the proper authority for information.
Good place to start is:
where you can find links to city's authorities
where you can try :
Divisions and departments of the Municipal Office (
on the left-side pane. At the botom of it there is the Registry Office
which is actually the civil records office (USC: Urząd Stanu Cywilnego).
The direct link is in Polish only:

Another one is the state archive office:
although in Polish only, on this site of state archive on Wroclaw you can find their phone numbers snail-mail address and e-mail address by clicking on "adresi i telefony" on right side menu.
