Belchatow, Poland

The town of Belchatow was occupied by the Germans during the first week of the war in 1939, during the High Holy Days. There was no formal ghetto, but some streets were earmarked as the Jewish district. The liquidation of the Jewish community of Belchatow occurred in August 1942 when close to 1,000 Jews were sent to the Lodz ghetto and 5,000 were deported to the extermination camp in Chelmno. No Jewish community was re-established in Belchatow after the war.
