Transliterated by Dr. Morton Lang

The record of our martyrs was assembed from memory of people, who have been away from the town for a period of decades. Because of this there are possibly errors or omission of names. We apologise for that to our townites.

Those who wish to include a certain name enter it, each letter separately (printed?) each in their own book.

[Pages 389-407]

Memorial Prayer

To the people of Chorostkow – men, women and children – who were tortured and murdered for the sanctification of God's name by the German Nazi enemies and their Ukrainian and Polish collaborators.

May God remember them for good, and may their souls be bound up in the bond of life, together with all the other martyrs of Israel.

For he demands that their blood shall be remembered. He has not forgotten the cry of the tortured.

And these are the names of the residents of our town who were slaughtered, burned and suffocated for the sanctification of God's name during the Second World War.
