Implementation of The Wysokie Mazowieckie Cemetery Restoration, May 2006

                                                                                                            

Jews settled in Wysokie Mazowieckie in the 17th Century.  In the second half of the 19th Century they became and  remained the  majority of the town's citizens, contributing to its economic  and cultural development.  During the German occupation, in August 1941, all  Wysokie Mazowiecki Jews were forced to live in a ghetto. The ghetto was liquidated on November 2, 1942, and its 2000  Jewish inhabitants were sent to the camp in Zambrow, and afterwards, in January 1943 to Auschwitz. 

 

In memory of the Jewish inhabitants of Wysokie Mazowieckie, murdered in the time of the  Shoah by the Germans and their collaborators. 

 

                                                                                                             The Wysokie  Mazowiecki Cemetery  Dedication & Commemoration Ceremonies will be held at 10:00h on Thursday, November 23, 2006.
