Introduction by Tony Kahane

Searching the Database


This database is an index of a list of 2,320 inhabitants of Mielec, Poland, dated August 15, 1940.

German forces had occupied Mielec in September 1939, and by 1941 had set up a forced labor camp, later to become a concentration camp, on the site of a former airplane factory on the outskirts of the town. A ghetto never existed in the town itself. In March 1942, large numbers of Jews were sent to the extermination camps in Belzec and Sobibór, while others were murdered in the town or sent to the forced labor camp.


The database is an index of lists of the Jewish inhabitants of Mielec, Poland, created - under a Nazi order - by the Judenrat of the town. It is dated August 15, 1940 and contains 98 pages. The records, which are in Polish, are held in the Rzeszów State Archive, in Fond 752, File 117. The archive also holds the records on microfilm no. P-4526, created in 1987.
