Jewish families persecuted by the Germans

The surviving Klobucker Jews perpetuate the remembrance of their families and close friends through the publishing of the photographs that were left and the description of their life and death.

The committee of the Yiskor Book strove to enter in the “Sefer Klobuck” the names, the photographs of all the Klobucker persecuted Jews. Unfortunately it was not possible to obtain a full list of names and to gather all of the materials from all of the deceased families.

El Malei Rachamim
(God full of mercy)

God, full of mercy, Who dwells above, give rest on the wings of the Divine Presence , amongst the holy, pure and glorious who shine like the sky, to the holy souls of Klobucker Jews and surroundings, fathers, mothers, sons and daughters. Old and young people, infants and babies, children and women who were killed, burned, slaughtered, strangled, struck, murdered and were buried alive by the Germans descendants of Amalek.

Therefore, the Merciful One will protect their souls forever, and will merge their souls with eternal life. The Everlasting is their heritage, and they shall rest peacefully at their lying place, and let us say: Amen.
