Jewish Homeowners and Businesses in 1939 map of Jaslo

Map of the Town

The map above is from the book, and is based on a map from 1900 which was updated in 1939.

Legend: 1-2. Town Hall (Ratusz Miejski), County Starost 3. High School for men (Gimnazjum) 4. Monastary and Church "Franciszkanch" 5. Sports Society "Sokol" 6-7. Schools 8. Synagogue 9. Chapel 10. Hospital 11-12-13. Bank,County Council, Savings Society 14-15-16. Post Office, Regional Court, Power Station 17-18. Dormitory, Railway Station 19. Monastary and Church "Wizytek" 20-1. Monuments 22. School 23. Cemetary Chapel 24. Gas Station/glassworks 25. Townsfolk Association - performance Hall 26. Football Stadium

The following was extracted from the list of owners of homes, and their addresses, in 1939. If there are two names given, the first is that of the owner of the property, the second of the tenant. The numbers at each street are actual street numbers, but few match the current ones. "N" with a surname means "name unknown and Ulica means Street. If you would like a copy of the page from the book, please send me a self addressed, stamped envelope and the name of the street. I may have a photograph of the street also. Phyllis

Jaslo, The Cemetery

The Cemetery in Jaslo

Before Monika Hendry gave us a first hand impression (see below), the only source material we had was the Jaslo Cemetery Survey, completed in 1992 by the US Commission (#POCE000724). The following is adapted from their report:
The cemetery is on Florjanska Street. The cemetery was used by Orthodox, and Progressive-Reform. It is located in a urban area, on flat land, isolated from the rest of town. Access off a public road is entirely closed. It is marked by a plaque in Polish referring to Jews and by Jewish symbols on gate or wall. There is a continuous masonry wall and a locked gate.
One third of a hectacre in size, there are between 20 to 100 gravestones, not in their original locations; 50%-75% are toppled or broken. The location of stones removed from the cemetery is not known. Tombstones are datable from both the 19th and 20th centuries. The stones, inscribed in Hebrew and Polish, are made of marble, granite, sandstone and concrete of all shapes, some smooth and inscribed, some flat with carved relief decorations, some sculpted. There are marked and unmarked mass graves and special memorial monuments to Holocaust victims but no other structures.
The present owner is the municipality but the property is used only as a Jewish cemetery. Properties adjacent to the cemetery are residential. The cemetery is visited occasionally by both Jewish and non-Jewish private visitors.
The cemetery is known to have been vandalized during World War II. The gate was repaired and cleaning the stones and removing vegetation was carried out by local/municipal authorities. Vegetation disturbing the graves is a constant problem, weather erosion a moderate threat, security and pollution a slight threat.

Next received was the following comment was made by a visitor in 1997: "The cemetery is located on Ulica Florjanska, opposite house Nr.85. It is well-groomed. A new memorial reminds of holocaust. We could not find a sign of the former WWI military graves."

Monika's Photographs and Impressions

Then Monika Hendry sent us wonderful photographs and her impressions:
Until very recently there was a broken little water pump at the corner (turning off the main road to the cemetery) for visitors to wash their hands. I remember my g-mother saying that Jews would always wash their hands before entering the cemetery.
Monika's first task was to locate the key. She found out that the key is held by the director of the Dom Kulturi.
Monika wrote: "The cemetery, viewed from the padlocked gate, is overgrown and unkempt: reminded me of the lawn surrounding a haunted house. I used to climb over the wall. There's a new pavement leading to the gate but it is already overgrown.

Monika sent these photographs.......so let's begin with the first view of the cemetery................ cem gate- Jaslo and go to the wonderful gate..... cem gate jaslo

Monika: It is a jungle inside. It is actually quite dangerous to walk around because of all the toppled tombstones and ditches covered by the undergrowth.The irony is that the tombstones of the rich made of marble and basalt were removed very early on, right after the war by a Polish stone mason....so the very gravestone Jaslo

few graves that remain are presumably of poor people and as such were not attractive. There are a few very new ones which all name people killed by Germans. They look like they were put very recently.
These are original stones that I saw:

  1. Naftali Welfeld, schied 12 Oktober 1905
  2. Marya ze Steinhausow Welfeldowa, zmarla 7-go czerwcz 1904 (possibly wife of Naftali, Marya from the Steinhaus gravestones Jaslo
    family, Welfeld, died 4 June 1904)
  3. Alter i Debora Zuckerowie 4.XI.1924, 21.II.1938
  4. Leibish Schinagel, gest am 29 April 1915 im 62 lebens jahre, tief betrauert son seinen kindern
  5. Herman Herzig 1884-1924
  6. Anna z Zuckerow Menassowa 2.X. 1921
  7. Mojzesz Polaner 1861-1911
I took many pictures, all standing or readable stones - hope they come out.

(Editor) Bill Leibner has done some explanation and translation for us, as follows:
The tombstone above which is broken is an interesting one.The name is not mentioned directly since this was not the custom in those days. They therefore took each letter and found a line in the holy writtings that started with the letter. You have the following letters; tz, d, vav, and kof which stands for Tzadok (righteous), a typical Hebrew first name. The last name is represented by the last line Weber. Thus the stone is for Tzadok Weber.
The stone immediately above on the right is a stone for a woman. You can see the candelabra, symbol of lighting candles, usually done by women on Friday and the evening before holidays. You also see the letters P.T.that stand for "here is buried"... Unfortunately the foliage covers the important details.

The following current photographs of the Jaslo Cemetery were taken off the Polish Cemetery Web site http://www.kirkuty.xip.pl/jaslo.htm Monika also found this article in the "Jaslo News" dated 3 August 1894; it said "we can see that the Jewish commune holds the ashes of their dead in higher respect than Catholic people, whose cemetery lies on the river (Jasiolka), and is flooded whenever the water rises even a little. We don't have a swimming pool when we are alive so we can enjoy it when we are dead free of charge".
These sarcastic comments from a journalist were prompted by the fact that Jaslo's Catholic cemetery, set up in 1790, was right next to the river and frequently flooded, while the Jewish kehilla purchased a nice elevated site on the border of Jaslo and the village of Sobniow (now Jaslo suburb).

At Last, Plans for the Cemetery Cleanup!! Sept 2018

The AntiSchematy Foundation in co-operation the City Hall and a local teacher, Magdalena Bialek, plan to clean the cemetery area at least twice a year. Magdalena writes: "Cleaning is the beginning of work. The next stage is the inventory of stones and inscriptions.Then we plan to prepare a guide in the form of a book also in an electronic format. Some of the stones are in very poor condition. If they cease to exist, we will not do it. There is no time to wait. We want the cemetery to be a place open to residents, that is, to serve education so that it is not forgotten"

About Jaslo and Magda Bialec

by Georges Feniger sept2018

"In Jaslo we stayed two days and met Magda Bialec, a teacher of Polish literature in one of the Jaslo high schools. Magda is special ! With Maciek her husband, also a teacher, Magda has decided that the young generation of Jaslo, her students aged 14/18 must know about their past history as they are citizen of Jaslo, and the main thing that these students should know about their past, is about Jaslo Jews.
Magda explains: “I lead young people to the Jewish cemetery, to teach them about their memory - They often do not know that such a place exists, but they come “Voluntarily and out of curiosity”.
Upon my arrival, Magda took me to the Jewish cemetery, with my friends; the place was in shambles full of weeds; she apologized, explaining that there used to be a benevolent gardener, but that he had died. In the same sentence she told me that she had decided to clean up the place with her students; she did so in June 9, 2017; a few days after this this first "hand" cleaning, she was able to receive two new mowers from us, she bought via a donation that I made with a few friends and family members to the Antyschematy2 foundation, which is based in Tarnow.

Objectives of the Antyschematy2 Foundation

Editors note: see the Facebook sites for this Foundation at https://www.facebook.com/antyschematy2/ and https://www.facebook.com/pg/antyschematy2/photos/?ref=page_internal . The photos are from these Facebook pages.

Magdalena Bialek is glad that she is doing what she does and supporting the youth. She argues that the present generation is less stereotyped - they are eager to build their image of the world in the face of authentic experience. This is the attitude of the young generation who says: I myself want to see how it works - she emphasizes. And why the cemetery? - I ask. - Because this is a material proof of the existence of the Jewish community in Jaslo, she explains. - And for the youth, the place where their work changes something. The adjoining area around the foot of the monument, the candlelight, are small things, but great at the same time. And besides, it triggers questions for them to ask to themselves and to others - she explains.

Where are we today: I have a list of 20+ friends and family members who want to support Magda She has decided that there will be a commemoration of the deportation of the Jaslo Jews every year on August 17th. This day marks the deportation of the jews to Belzec. She would like to make the Jewish cemetery a place of visit and commemoration. She wants to digitalize the list of people, she can identify buried in the cemetery. She has made an agreement with the Antyschematy2 foundation in order to be able to collect funding secured through Visa/Paypal via the foundation's web site.

Letter from Magdalena Bialek
On June 9, 2017, in the afternoon, the first social action of cleaning the Jewish cemetery in Jaslo took place in the afternoon. The action was organized spontaneously by the City of Jaslo in cooperation with the AntySchematy2 Foundation from Tarnów, with the participation of dozens of volunteers from various institutions and organizations.

Why Jewish Cemetery? Nowadays, we increasingly feel the need to discover and understand our past, the cultural heritage left by our ancestors. Due to the huge amount of damage that Jaslo suffered as a result of World War II, there were not many material memories of the past. What has been saved, the historical and cultural heritage of the former inhabitants, we try to protect and surround with care.

Jasielski Jewish Cemetery is the only material trace of the presence of the Jewish community in Jaslo. Like every other cemetery, this is also a monument to the history of our city. Thieves, ordinary people, inhabitants of thriving social, economic and political life, which ended the Second World War, are buried there. It is the cultural heritage of Jaslo, which we want to take care of and give to the next generations.

The cleaning of the cemetery was the next action taken in the year (after Memorial Day) The Holocaust Victims exhibition, called the "Jewish Community in Jaslo" and held in the Regional Museum in Jaslo" the action called " Daffodils ", a social and educational campaign, which includes the Public Library in Jaslo, are aimed at restoring the image of the Jewish community and its role In the life of our city. Due to unregulated legal status and ongoing court proceedings, the cemetery has no formal guardian. Tombstones are covered with lush grass and hidden beneath a layer of branches and leaves, often accumulated over many years. At present the cemetery is taken care of by a private initiative from the school environment with a group of young people. Their actions are minimal, they mainly involve keeping the monument clean or harvesting leaves from the path. The amount of cleaning work needed to do in the cemetery, due to its surface, remains huge.

We will soon get information on how to donate to this wonderful project. Stay tuned!
