Translated by Lancy Spalter

Wampierzow was first mentioned in documents from 1581 as a village owned by the nobility. In the 1880s there were 105 Jews out of a total of 2,070 inhabitants. In 1921 there were 101 Jews out of a total of 1,596 inhabitants.

Because of the proximity of Wampierzow to Radomysl-Wielki, we can assume that at the end of July 1941, the Jews of Wampierzow were uprooted, like other Jews in this area, and sent to Radomysl-Wielki. This community was extirpated on July 19, 1942. Some of its Jews were killed on the spot or in the nearby forest. Most were sent to Debica and from there, a few days later, to the Maidanek Death Camp.
