The Jews of Krakow and its Surrounding Towns

 

Niepolomice Memorial

Niepolomice was a suburb of Krakow. A mass execution occurred there on August 27, 1942 during WWII, in the Niepolomice National Forest. Several people murdered during that event are memorialized on a gravestone there that records 38 of the victims.

The massacre is described in testimony given by Eliyahu Richter who was born in Niepolomice toYad Vashem, in Testimony #03/3571 Archives #3172/197-R, Feb 1971. A New York class-action lawsuit in 1996 found on-line in the Court TV library against three Swiss banks alleging that the banks conspired to launder and conceal Nazi assets. Within that brief the following was found:

"In 1945, a friend of Bernard Salamon wrote to Lewis Salton in New York and told him his entire family, including his mother and father, had been killed by the Nazi Regime. The letter stated that his family had been shipped by cattle car to a concentration camp called Belzec where they were stripped naked and gassed.  He was later informed by a German legal official and provided a court paper documenting the death of some 612 Jews, including his father, in the Polish National Forest of Niepolomice in  1942. Mr. Salamon had been separated from his wife, daughter and other relatives and transported by truck to the forest where, the day before, Poles had been ordered to dig large trenches. The Nazi Regime SS commanders murdered the 612, ten people at a time, by lining them up naked on the ground in front of the trenches and shooting them to death."

The following names appear on the mass grave memorial gravestone at NIEPOLOMICE, POLAND which is located within the PUSZCZE-NIEPOLOMSKIE [the Dense woods of NIEPOLOMICE], memorializing those killed by the Nazis on 14 Elul 5702 [August 27, 1942].
