Unit Question Two - "How Were Victims Oppressed?"
Online Exhibition - Yad Vashem - "19 km from Auschwitz: The Story of Trzebinia"
On 29 May 1942, the deportation of the Jews of Trzebinia began. That day, SS and German police forces surrounded the ghetto, and a selection was carried out. The young and healthy were sent to work in factories in the nearby town of Chrzanów and forced labor camps within the Reich borders. A week later, those who remained were sent to Auschwitz, where they were murdered in the gas chambers on their arrival.
After the war, only 270 Jews from Trzebinia remained alive.
