Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Dabrowa Górnicza was occupied by the German army in early September 1939. All Jews living there- approximately 5,000- were gathered into the Judische Kultusgemeinde (Jewish Community) prior to the establishment of the Dabrowa ghetto the following year. A Judenrat was established, and many of the Jewish businesses were aryanized. Young Jews were deployed for forced labor in Germany as well as in war related industries. Jews not selected for work were deported to Auschwitz. At the end of the war only 300 Jews from Dabrowa survived.
