  • Elder of Ziyon
For Yom HaShoah, I looked through the Yad Vashem victims database to find a typical small village in order to list all the victims we are aware of who lived there. (Yad Vashem limits queries to 1000, so looking for any well-known city or even popular last names would return only the first thousand names.)

Here are 82 of the Holocaust victims of Gdow, Poland.  In general the database only has a fraction of the actual victims of the Shoah.

The entire village had 375 Jews in the mid-19th century.

You can click on any name to go to that person's record at Yad Vashem.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
