Klepariv Station

In north-eastern Lviv lies Klepariv stationt and from there the Nazis deported Lviv’s Jews to Belzec extermination camp, about 150 kilometres north. The station (umschlagplatz) was about five kilometers from the ghetto and the Jews were forced on foot to the station. The station was also only about a kilometer from Janowska concentration camp, 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 500,000 Jews were deported from the station but the truth is closer to 300,000. Unlike the monuments at Janowska, the station is well maintained and worthy.
