Kamionna – July 17, 2014

The owners of a farm house in the village of Kamionna, together with Zbigniew Niziński, marked a burial site of 5 Jews murdered in a German manhunt in August 1943. Now a memorial plaque commemorates the grave and reminds of tragic event s which took place there.

The farmhouse was a hiding place for 14 Jews. One of them was captured by the Germans and forced to reveal the hideout. At the time 4 Jews were hiding in a barn. They were later shot to death by the Germans, together with the Jew who had been captured earlier. For helping the Jews, the farm owner was taken away to Auschwitz where he was murdered on December 4, 1943. Now his son helped commemorate those whom he and his family had attempted to rescue.
