Deportation of Jews from Parysow, Poland The Germans captured Parysow on September 17, 1939 and established a Judenrat a month later. A ghetto was set up in November 1940. The ghetto was liquidated on September 27, 1942, when its 3,500 inhabitants, including 2,000 refugees, were deported to Treblinka Death Camp.
Sept 1942. A child deported during the “Sperre” in the Lodz Ghetto, Poland. On Sept 5, 1942, the deportation known as the “Sperre” began - the roundup and removal of more than 15,000 children, elderly and ill Jews in one week from the Lodz Ghetto. Unlike elsewhere, news about the mass murder of the Jews had not reached the Lodz Ghetto. The brutal Aktion of September made it clear that deportation meant death.
