Children of the Tomaszów Ghetto

Grant for the Pasaże Pamięci Foundation for the project commemorating the children of the Tomaszów Ghetto

Salomon, Mordechaj, Jenta, Miriam, Melech and Perla are among the many names of children born in Tomaszów Mazowiecki when the ghetto was operating. These children came into the world in homes, assisted by midwives, and sometimes in the Jewish hospital; sometimes mothers in labor ended up in the municipal hospital outside the ghetto. Pasaże Pamięci Foundation’s “Children of the Tomaszów Ghetto” project is recovering the names of the youngest Jewish children by preparing a bilingual publication dedicated to children born in Tomaszów in 1941–42.
