Rakowi


About three kilometers northwest of Piotrkow Trybunalski, there is a forest area called Rakowi where the nazis murdered in December 1942 560 jews from the ghetto of Piotrkow Trybunalski. In 1943, 39 children from the same ghetto were murdered.

Current status: Monument (2013).

Location: 51°25'23.52"N 19°43'26.71"E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

Like many other similar monuments in similar places, they are erected on private initiative, usually by relatives to the victims.

Follow up in books: Gilberg, Martin: Holocaust: A History of the Jews of Europe During the Second World War (1987).
