RELICO card to Geneva, General Gouvernement 30 pfg tied Rzeszow cds, bearing small boxed Judenrat eichshof along with Nazi censor. Rzeszow's Jews maintained prominence in the cultural and economic life of the city for more than 400 years. They were buisnessmen and artisans, with a growing population into the twentieth century. With the German occupation in 1939, Jewish property was expropriated, evictions from apartments and homes occurred, businesses "Aryanised." A Judenrat was organied, many more refugees from Western Poland arrived, forced labor occurred, and with the establishment of the ghetto in 1942, many thousands of Jews were murdered in the ghetto, along with the deportations that occurred to the Belzec death camp.
