Czudec, Poland: Jewish Birth and Death Records 1939-1942

Introduction by Tony Kahane

Searching the Database


This is database of 14 Jewish births and death records from Czudec, Poland from 1939-1942.

German forces occupied Czudec in September 1939. While Czudec was a small town, Jews from the surrounding region were subsequently brought into the town in significant numbers. There was never a ghetto in Czudec. Instead, Jewish men and women were hired out as forced labor to private or municipal enterprises - including those involved in construction, road building and estate management. Several of these enterprises were based in the nearby town of Strzyzůw.
