Photos of Nagórzanka

submitted by Avi Schneebaum and Constance Cowan

Nagórzanka and Jagielnica were neighboring shtetlach [villages] situated very close to each other, in fact less than a kilometer apart.  Nagórzanka was perched on the hilltop overlooking Jagielnica. It is likely that at the time the postcards were published, Nagórzanka was considered an extension of Jagielnica and there was no inconsistency in identifying it as Jagielnica.  The Jewish communities of the two areas were intertwined, having one and the same economy, sharing the same synagogue, cemetery and schools. The tobacco factory was located on the hill in Nagórzanka overlooking Jagielnica.
