Ujazd is 22 miles ESE of Lódz,
17 miles NE of Piotrków Trybunalski,
6 miles NW of Tomaszów Mazowiecki.
According to a 2009 report published on the International Jewish Cemetery Project,
The Jewish cemetery was NW of the village. During WWII, the Germans completely destroyed it.
Its precise location is unknown. Not one gravestone survived."
However, the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland
recently sent a researcher to Ujazd and found the cemetery based on the 1915 map
of Ujazd below. Note the small Jewish star indicated by the red arrow.
The cemetery needs to be surveyed before it can be fenced and preserved. If you are interested
in helping with a donation, please contact me, Deborah Long.
This website is dedicated to the memory
of the Galas family of Ujazd,
to their ancestors and descendants; and to my mother, Fayga Galas,
and the worlds that she lost.
