(District of Grudziądz, Region of Pomerania)

Translated by Jerrold Landau


In 1885, 243 Jews lived in Łasin, but by the end of the First World War (in 1921) only 23 Jews remained. Those who remained in September 1939, at the outbreak of the Second World War, were certainly deported to the Generalgouvernement by the end of that year, just like the rest of the residents of the Pomerania region.
