Estimated Pre-WWII Jewish Population - Lublin District

The Lublin district of Poland was the center of Jewish life and had a high concentration of religious
(orthodox/Hasidic) Jews. According to the 1931 census of Poland, Lublin district had 314,340 Jews.
In the nearby Wolyn district (modern Ukraine), there were 207,792 in the same census.

In the Lublin district, there were more than 115 Jewish communities that had a Jewish population of
more than 100 Jews each, prior to 1939. The following communities in the Lublin district had a pre-
Holocaust Jewish population. Please note that in many cases these are estimates, as most of Lublin's
Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. This is not an all-inclusive listing because records for the
smaller communities were destroyed during the Shoah.

The below listing does not include communities north of Adamow, Koden, Lomazy, Radzyn Podlaski,
and Ryki. Therefore Biala Podlaska Siedlce, Terespol, and Lukow are not included in the listing.
