Pictured here is a Purim play being held in the ghetto in Wielopole, Poland in 1942. The Jewish community in Wielopole was poor and numbered about 500. On June 26, 1942, the Germans expelled the entire community to Ropczyce and then to the Belzec death camp.
On 1 September 1939, the Germans invaded Poland, and on 5 September they conquered Płońsk. On 16 December 1942, the last of the Jews of Płońsk were sent to Auschwitz. Out of all the Jews living in Płońsk when the Germans invaded, only a few dozen survived the Shoah. This is the story of the community of Płońsk.
Pictured here are children performing a play during Purim in Wieliczka, Poland in 1942. Many men fled the town with the approach of the Germans in 1939. More men were murdered when the Germans arrived. Wieliczka became the only town with an all female Judenrat. Women also performed the forced labor until the men returned. On August 26, 1942 a large scale Aktion occurred during which many Jews were murdered, while the majority were sent to the Belzec death camp.
