In Memorium To The

Jewish Community of Skole
and Neighbouring Villages

Who perished in the Holocaust

Issued by the Jewish Committee of Skole in Israel


May these pages serve as a memorial to the four thousand Jews of Skole and its vicinity,
who were killed with the utmost cruelty, and who left succeeding generations with the Inheritance:


Remember. Do not forget us.


(Memorial Prayer)


We remember you,
Mothers and fathers,
Grandfathers and grandmothers,
Brothers and sisters,
Friends and comrades,
The old and the young,
Jews of our townlet,
Your pure image will rest in our souls,
The evil which has been done unto you by the Nazis

Will be remembered, and never forgotten.
