Produced from memory by Mr. Yosef Grundwag of Jerusalem (label 16)
Note from translator: I labeled the Hebrew/Yiddish inscriptions from 1-63. I did my best to verify the spelling of cities and towns. For street names, I tried to match Polish spelling, but it is probable that the spelling that I provided is not exact in most cases. I put my own comments in parentheses. In the two cases where street names had parentheses in the original (presumably these are alternative street names), I put them in square brackets so as not to confuse with my own comments.
Small Map in Upper Left Inset
The small map inserted at upper left is a map of Sochaczew in relation to major cities and concentration camps of Poland. Cities are denoted on map by circles, and Concentration Camps by black dots.
- Wysla (River)
- Treblinka (Concentration Camp)
- Sochaczew (underlined)
- Kutna (a city, but noted on map with a black dot, so presumably a Concentration Camp as well, although not a well-known one.)
- Chelmno (Concentration Camp)
- Sobibor (Concentration Camp)
- Majdanek (Concentration Camp)
- Belzec (Concentration Camp)
- Auschwitz (Osweicim – Concentration Camp)
Directions are not labeled, however, since the note (27) at rightmost edge of main street crossing City (Warsawer Street) notes that direction is to Warsaw, and Warsaw is almost directly east of Sochaczew, it can be deduced that the rightmost edge is east, and consequently, the top edge is north. These directions may not be exact, as it is doubtful that the main streets which cross from top-bottom and right-left are exactly north-south and east-west respectively, however from the labels, it is obviously that they are close to that.
