Łazy was a mining town of approximately 1,500 residents close to Katowice, Poland. The Jews were approximately one-sixth of the town’s population. At the end of 1940 and the beginning of 1941, Jews began reaching Łazy from the areas of Western Poland annexed to the German Reich. On 16 June 1942, most of the Jews of Łazy were deported to Auschwitz.
