Alternate name: Gollnow [Ger]. When the first Jews settled in Goleniów is unknown, but in 1782 62 Jews lived there and 165 in 1840. Around 1900, many of them have emigrated for economic reasons. In 1933, only 77 Jews remained. Nazi repression further decreased this number. Those who remain until the outbreak of World War II in February 1940 were deported to ghettos in Lublin. Most did not survive. [May 2009]
