In 1939, some 40,000 Jews lived in the Vinnitsa district of Ukraine, 33,000 of whom resided in the city of Vinnitsa itself. Before the German occupation, over half the city’s Jews fled eastward into the USSR. Most of the Jews who remained in Vinnitsa had been murdered by April 1942. Hundreds of Jewish partisans were active in the forests near Vinnitsa. Some of them concealed their Jewish identity due to antisemitism.
