Klepariv Station


It was from the Klepariv station in north-eastern Lviv that the Nazis deported Lviv’s Jews to the extermination camp Belzec about 150 kilometres north. The station (umschlagplatz) was about five kilometers from the ghetto and the Jews were forced to march to the station. The station was also only about a kilometer from the camp Janowska, which facilitated the deportations of the camp’s Jews. Between March 1942 and early 1943, about 300,000 Jews were deported from Klepariv, the majority to Belzec.

Current status: Preserved with information tablet (2009).

Location: 49° 51' 19.66" N 23° 58' 51.23" E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

The information on the tablet mentions that there were 500,000 Jews who were deported but the truth is closer to about 300,000. Unlike the monuments at Janowska, the station is well-groomed and worthy of the events that took place there.
