Extracts from Beth Ha'Tefutsoth' database:

A Jewish settlement in Wyszogrod is mentioned for the first time in 1422, when Jews received authorization from Prince Ziemowitz IV (C. 1352 - 1426) to engage in commerce and crafts and to establish their own institutions.

During the 16th century, Jews established workshops for weaving.

In the second half of the 18th century, a synagogue was erected, built of stone in the late baroque style according to plans by the famous architect David Frydlander. It was destroyed by the Nazis in 1939.

In 1765 the 684 Jews paid the poll tax and 1,410 Jews paid the same tax in the surrounding villages.

From the mid-19th century, many Jews moved from Wyszogrod to Plock and Warsaw.

During 1920s, eight of the 12 members of the Municipal Council were Jews.

Because of the town's location on Poland's principal waterway, the Vistula River, Jews there engaged in interurban trade. Their position deteriorated, however, on the eve of World War II as a result of anti-Semitic pressure and boycott propaganda.

N. Sokolov was born in Wyszogrod.

The last rabbis to hold office were David Borenstein (until 1922) and Naphtali Spivak, both whom perished in the Holocaust.

At the outbreak of WWII, there were about 2,700 Jews in Wyszogrod.

On Nov. 19, 1942, the Jewish community was liquidated when the Jews were expelled to Czerwinsk and Nowy Dwor, and from there deported to the Treblinka death camp.

After the war, the Jewish Community was not reconstructed.
