A Memorial to the Martyrs of

The Stryj

Killed in the Holocaust

5701 5704

May G-d avenge their blood!

On the 16th of June, 1974 an unveiling ceremony took place in the Memorial Section of the Nachlat Yitzhak cemetery in Israel of the monument to the martyrs of the Stryj Jewish community.

The stone monument was placed over a box containing a parchment scroll of the names of the Stryj victims. The list was compiled by the Former Residents Of Stryj Organization in Israel with the help of the survivors and comprises over 4,000 names of Jews from Stryj killed in the Holocaust. The list contains the family and first names and, in many cases, denotes the parent's name of the victim.

Since the list was compiled from memory, there is certainly a risk that not all the Stryj victims appear here. For this reason, in the event that you know of name(s) that do not appear here, we would be grateful if you would write to us and we will periodically update this present list, in accordance.

  Uriel Zur-Shützer z”l
  Chairman of the Former
  Residents of Stryj in Israel.
