Dubrocowa


In a forest outside a small village called Dubrocowa, about fourty kilometres southwest of Rzeszow, the Nazis murdered in november 1943 about 2000 jews. These Jews came from the nearby concentration camp of Szebnie and were murdered by order of Plaszow commandant SS-Hauptsturmführer Amon Göth. Those who carried out the massacre were SS cadets from the SS military training area Pustkow – Osedlie about fifty kilometres north of Szebnie.

Current status: Monument (2015).

Location: 49°44'28.02"N 21°35'38.66"E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

The monument is signposted from the road and is located about 400 – 500 meters into a small forest road. When the monument was established, there was a small path leading to the monument surrounded by curbstone. This road is certainly still there but is not maintained and has been damaged by car traffic.
