(District of Śrem, Region of Poznań)

Translated by Jerrold Landau


The first Jews settled in Międzychód during the 17th century, and an organized community already existed during the 18th century. There Jewish population was 790 in 1804. After that time, the Jewish population continually declined. In 1910, 115 Jews still remained, but by the end of the First World War (in 1921) only 42 Jews remained there, and the population decline continued.

The Nazis, who conquered Międzychód in September 1939, deported the last Jews of Międzychód to the Generalgouvernement that year.
