On Nov. 2, 1942, all the Jews from the Ostryna ghetto were deported to the Kelbasin forced-labor camp near Grodno, and at the end of the month were deported to*Auschwitz. A few young people escaped from the trains going to Auschwitz and joined partisans. Source: Source: Encyclopaedia Judaica. © 2008 The Gale Group. All Rights Reserved.
