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.
