Sil'tse Holocaust

In April 1944, the Jews of Sil'tse, as well as the surrounding villages, were rounded up and marched to the ghetto in Munkács where they were interned for a month and a half. The Germans then moved everyone from the ghetto to a brick factory outside of town from which they were forced into cattle cars and transported by train to the Auschwitz concentration camp. The photograph to the right is that of the Munkács ghetto.
