Velikiy Berëznyy Holocaust





In 1939, the Hungarians occupied Velikiy Berëznyy cutting off the Jews from their livelihoods. A few dozen Jews were drafted into the Hungarian slave labor battalions, with some perishing on the eastern front. Then in late July, 1941, a number of Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship, were deported to Kamenets-Podolski in Ukraine, where they were murdered.

The day after Passover 5704 (16 April 1944), the general roundup of the remaining Jews in Velikiy Berëznyy occurred forcing them into the synagogue which had a barbed wire fence around it. Afterwards, they were taken by train to the ghetto in Uzhhorod. Here, the Jews of Velikiy Berëznyy cowered for a month or so and then were transported to Auschwitz in late-May, 1944. The photograph to the right is that of the Ungvár ghetto memorial.
