Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Nowy Sacz, known as Neu Sandez in German, is in southern Poland near Cracow. The Germans occupied Nowy Sacz in September 1939. A Judenrat was established, along with forced labor and the confiscation of both property and businesses. Approximately 18,000 to 20,000 Jews were sealed in the Ghetto created in 1941. During August 1942, the ghetto was liquidated with three transports of men, women, and children to the Belzec extermination center.

This letter from a civil engineer Hueber to the city commission in Neu-Sandez “for his perusal” follows less than one month later. He notes that “Due to the resettlement [typical Nazi euphemistic term for deportation and murder] of the Jews… demolition of the houses in poor condition is of major importance… remaining building materials are to be retained and reused… you may not sell these material to private hands or dealers…”
