Re: What happened to uncle Michel ROTMAN ? #poland

Lewis, Megan

According to the Virtual Shtetl article for Ostrow Mazowiecka
the majority of the Jews were killed in mass shootings in September or November 1939. This would explain the lack of paper records.  Another scenario is that he fled east into Soviet territory and died there ( for example many Polish Jewish refugees were sent to Siberia.)
