Kutno was home to some 6,700 Jews on the eve of World War II. The Jews of Kutno were ordered to move into the ghetto in June 1940. Despite their guarantees, city officials did not provide enough wagons, and most of the Jews had to carry whatever they could manage into the ghetto, and many were forced make outdoor living arrangements. The vast majority of the Jews of Kutno were murdered during the Holocaust.
