Murowana Goślina

(District of Oborniki, Region of Poznań)

Translated by Jerrold Landau


The first Jews settled in Murowana Goślina in 1782. By 1840, there was already a Jewish community of 488 souls there. The Jews of Murowana Goślina earned their livelihood primarily from small-scale commerce and trade. During the latter half of the 19th century, the wave of Jewish immigration to the large cities of Germany increased. There were still 132 Jews remaining in Murowana Goślina in 1895, but by the end of the First World War (in 1921), the population had declined to only 44. At the time of the Nazi occupation in September 1939, only a few Jews remained. They were deported to the Generalgouvernement along with the rest of their brethren of the Region of Poznań.
