  • Hello Centropa. Today we are going to visit the historic district of Lublin.

What happened Years Ago…

  • Before we start it is important to know some general information about the old town and the Jewish district and population of Lublin before and during World War II.

The Time Before The War Began…

  • The city contained a vibrant Jewish community which formed around 40% of Lublin's population.

  • These were about 43.000 Jews

  • In 1930 the biggest Talmud school (Jeshiwa) of the world were built in Lublin.

  • The Jewish district in Lublin in the 30s of the 20th century.

The Changes during world war ii…

  • Lublin’s Jewish population was forced into the Lublin Ghetto established around the area of Podzamcze.

  • Almost every inhabitant of the Ghetto was deported and killed in a concentration camp.

  • Near the Ghetto the concentration camp Majdanek were built by the Nazis

And this is how Lublin Looks today…

The Results after the war…

  • Of Poland's prewar Jewish population of 3,500,000, only about 50,000-120,000 survived the war.
