This is the translation of Sefer Serotsk – The Memorial Book of Serock (Serock, Poland)

Hard Cover, 11” by 8.5”, 576 pages.

Serock, about 20 miles from Warsaw, was a community built on the Narew River. It had a Jewish presence since the 18th century. Involved in all sorts of commerce and industry, the Jewish residents constituted nearly half of the town's population by the start of World War II. Traditional in their religious beliefs, for the most part, over 2,000 Jews were displaced from the town by the end of 1939. The vast majority initially were sent to various Polish Ghettoes, and eventually to Nazi-run death camps, such as Treblinka. After the war, those Serock residents who survived returned to the town and eventually moved on with their lives in other countries around the world, notably the United States of America and the State of Israel.

This book serves as a memorial to all the victims of the Shoah from Serock and the nearby vicinity.
