The Matzeva of the Jews of Plock in the Mountain of Zion, Jerusalem, 1960

In wrath and sorrow we shall remember the pure and holy souls of our brothers and sisters who fell at the hands of the corrupt murderers devoid of God's image.

We shall remember the humble Jews and the highly cultured ones, glory of the people, the old and the young, the honest and dear ones, the righteous and the charitable, the magnanimous and the faithful.

We shall remember the dreams, the hopes and aspirations, the high ideals, love for the people of Israel and love of the land, the faith and the heroism, the hate and contempt for their murderers.

We shall remember the synagogues and the houses of learning, the Institutes for charity and good deeds, the schools and the libraries, all the Zionist and Educational Organizations for the benefit of the people.

We shall remember all those who were destroyed and annihilated and wiped out by the insane and thoroughly corrupt enemy, we shall remember -

We shall not forget!

Aba Kovner
(Translated from Hebrew to English by Bianca Shlezinger May 98).

PLOCK NECROLOGY LIST

This is the necrology, or list of names of those who perished in the Holocaust, as listed on Pages 577-604.

The list was compiled by Avital and Baruch Pinnick, in memory of the PINNICK family perished in the Holocaust.

"Unfortunately I recognized several of my relatives in the list which I helped to transliterate. I would very much like to dedicate the work to these people" Baruch Pinnick, Maale Adumim, Israel, December 1999.

The list was proofread by Ilana Witkowski, from the Landsmanschaften of Plock, in memory of her Sczlachter family. It was edited, processed and posted by Ada Holtzman, in memory of the Zlotnik family of Plock.

The names are sorted according to the Surnames' English translation order, and the original is by the Hebrew alphabetical order. The maiden names of women, compiled in parenthesis near the surname. There is sometimes no parenthesis around the second name, and it was kept in the list as in the original record.
Preparing this list was very difficult for me, as I well remember the tragedy behind each and every name. I added a virtual memorial candle near each name, to remember day and night the Jews of Plock!

After the list has been completed, another source was found: Yad Vashem "Dapei Ed" - "Hall of Names" now fully computerized! About 3000 additional, or the same names of Shoa martyrs from Plock (born or lived in that town) are available at Yad Vashem! I have only the index printed and can advise anyone who is searching a certain victim if there is Testimony Page, ever submitted to Yad Vashem, in memory of his beloved one.

Names of martyrs added to the original list by: Ilana Witkowski ("IW"), Ada Holtzman ("AH"), Wowa Klamra ("WK"), Andrzey Bril ("AB")

ANYONE WHO HAS MORE NAMES TO ADD, IS KINDLY REQUESTED TO CONTACT ADA HOLTZMAN at email: ada001 "at" netvision.net.il
