Bacs-Kiskun County, Hungary

Jews settled in the area in the 18th century.

The town of Baja was a main concentration point for the concentration of Jews after the Nazi invasion of Hungary in March 1944. In the months that followed, 8,200 Jews were deported to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp in occupied Poland.

Only a handful of Jews live in the area today.
