An Orthodox Jew being abused by Nazis in Kozienice, Poland

The Germans captured Kozienice on September 9, 1939. A Judenrat was soon established and a regime of forced labor instituted. The Jewish population numbered 4,208 in January 1940. In August 1942, refugees doubled the ghetto population and on September 2, 1942, 8,000 Jews were deported to the Treblinka death camp.
