80th anniversary of the liquidation of Staszów Jewish Community #poland #holocaust

Jean-Pierre Stroweis

Dear all,


Tomorrow November 8, 2022 is the 80th anniversary of the liquidation of Staszow Jewish Community, some 5,000 souls before WWII. On November 9, 1942, Jews in Staszow ghetto were marched southwest to Stopnica and to Szczucin on the Wisla/Vistula river and deported by train to Treblinka. Mass graves were digged along the way in the village Niziny.


A memorial ceremony will take place on November 28 in Beit Volyn in Giv’ataim co-organized by Yad Vashem and the 2nd generation committee. The event will include lectures in hebrew and in english. See attached program.


A Zoom session will be available 15 minutes before the official ceremony starts at 18:00 Israel time (i.e. 11 am EST), so that you can watch the social mingling which will be broadcasted live.  To register in advance to the Zoom meeting:
