All the colors of the rainbow were represented in Wolomin, from the extremist Hasidim to the Communists. There were craftsmen: shoemakers and leather workers, tailors and glaziers, blacksmiths, carpenters, bakers, butchers, carters and peddlers.

The Jews of Wolomin did not neglect their education and culture even in the most difficult moments. There were many educational institutions in the town, cheders and Talmud Torah, in which Jewish boys studied the Torah from the age of four.

The boundless idealisms, the total devotion of the Zionist activists come alive from the pages of the book. The flame of courage and the sacrifice of the pioneering youth.

The rich Jewish life came to a tragic end when the Germans occupied Wołomin. A ghetto was set-up on November 15th, 1940. Deportations to Treblinka began in August 1942 and the ghetto was liquidated on October 6th, 1942.

May this book serve as a memorial to those who lived in Wołomin.
