Normal 0 CEMETERY: Located at ul. Skalskiej in the vicinity of an emergency building, the WWII devastation by the Nazis left only isolated fragments of gravestones. In the 1980s, the Nissenbaum Family Foundation, Council for the Protection of Memory of Struggle and Martyrdom, and local authorities cleaned and fenced the site. On November 24, 1988, they unveiled a monument commemorating 4,500 Wolbrom Holocaust victims: pillars supporting a beam with a Mogen David inscribed in Polish and Hebrew. MASS GRAVE: In the nearby forest, Jews were murdered here by the Nazis during the liquidation of the Wolbrom  ghetto. Video.  [July 2009]
