Glogow


Between 1942 and 1944, between 5,000 – 6,000 Jews (including a hundred Christian poles) were murdered in a wooded area a few kilometers north of Rzeszow called Glogow (german Rudna). The victims were buried in three mass graves. The largest murder was carried out in July 1942 when the local nazis in Rzeszow sent about 2,000 Jews from Rzeszow ghetto to Glogow. These were Jews whom the Nazis considered unproductive (old and children) and could not be exploited as slave workers.

Current status: Monument (2015).

Location: 50° 07' 59" N 21° 58' 24" E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

The monument is not easy to find and as a visitor you have to know what to look for. There is a parking lot opposite a hotel and from there you have to walk about 500 meters on a forest road (not driveable) that leads to the monument and a marked mass grave.
