The HolocaustEdit

  • More than 800 Jews lived in Zakrzówek upon the German invasion. In October 1942, 50 Jewish children together with elders and the disabled were slaughtered by the Nazis. A group of 400 remaining Jews—together with Jewish dwellers of nearby Annopol, Janów Lubelski and Dzierzkowice—were moved to the ghetto in neighboring Kraśnik. Some of them were taken to the labor camp at Budzyń by Kraśnik, but most of them were murdered in the death camps at Bełżec and Majdanek.[2]
