Remember the Destroyed Jewish Communities of Lublin District, Poland

According to our estimates, more than 242,800 Jews lived in the pre-war Lublin district.

Historians have determined that the Nazis murdered 1,860,000 Polish Jews in the extermination camps in
Poland, plus another 1.0 million Polish Jewish deaths in prisons and ghettos. In addition 970,000 Jews
from other nations were murdered in the Nazi extermination camps in Poland. Included in the Polish
figures of war dead are 2.0 million Polish citizens in the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.
The Lublin district, once a large and proud Hasidic-majority within Jewish life, descended into one of the
world's largest graveyards. The Nazi leadership established 57 ghettos, 17 transit camps, 143 work camps,
3 Stalags, and 3 killing centers -- Majdanek, Belzec, and Sobibor -- with a fourth (Treblinka) nearby.

The once-thriving Jewish community in eastern Poland was completed massacred. At its postwar peak,
there were 180,000 to 240,000 Jews in Poland, settled mostly in Warsaw, Lodz, Krakow and Wroclaw.
Today, there are very few signs of Jewish life in southeast Poland. This site exists to remember our
ancestors, the contributions of Jews to modern Poland, and the victims who lived in the Lublin district.
