At the beginning of the German occupation, there were ca. 37,000 Jews in Lublin. The Nazis displaced more than 3,000 Jews of Lublin to other places, and for the rest of the Jews they established a ghetto in April 1941. In March 1942 ca. 18,000 of the Jews were deported, mainly to Bełżec; many were killed on the spot. In April 1942 the Nazis established a new ghetto, in the Lublin suburb of Majdan Tatarski; 7,000 Jews were confined there. In September-November 1942 the small ghetto was also liquidated. Dwells on the activities of the Jewish Council, as well as on the forced labor, Nazi expropriation of Jewish property, and the internal life of the Jewish community in Lublin, both before the ghetto and during its existence. Contains excerpts from the testimonies of survivors and numerous photographs of sites from the prewar and wartime periods.
