Their Legacies Remain...

Photograph Collection of the Jews of Trzebinia

The vast majority of those photographed were murdered. This collection is a mute testimony to the complete persecution of the Jewish community, its teachers and students, its traders and slave laborers, its men, women and children.

With the help of immigrants and survivors from Trzebinia, most of those pictured have been identified.

Elimelech Gross, a committee member of the Trzebinia Immigrants Association in Israel, later donated the collection to Yad Vashem. Some of the photos from this collection can be seen below. Additional photos are accessible in our Online Photo Archive.
