Details:

This is the translation of the Memorial book of the Jewish Community of Kozienice Poland and the neighboring town of Garbatke. It is all that remains of this once thriving community. It bears witness to its existence and final destruction.

“All that remains of Kozienice's Hasidim and preaching, Zionism and socialism, its leaders and common people, societies and organizations is the parcel of memories, the pages and few pictures of the book which we are bringing before you.

Wherever you are – in Jerusalem or Paris, Brussels or New York, Rio de Janeiro or Melbourne—open this book, leaf through its pages, look at its pictures. Remember Kozienice, and do not forget its martyrs. Remember their daily struggle for Jewish survival, for Israel, for freedom and for independence of the Jewish people.”

Tel-Aviv, November, 1969
Barukh Kaplinsky, Editor

Read the details in the survivors' own words as they remember and bring to life the once vibrant Jewish community of Kozienice. Today there are no Jews living in Kozienice Poland.

 

Kozienice is located at 51°35' North Latitude and 21°34' East Longitude.
