Small text only poster announcing curfew times for Jews in German occupied Ukraine

Object | Accession Number: 2010.443.1

Small text only handbill announcing curfew times for Jews in Brody, Poland (Ukraine), in July 1941, in Ukrainian and German. In September 1939, not long after the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany, Brody was occupied by the Soviet Union under the terms of the German-Soviet Pact. When Germany attacked Russia on June 22, 1941, Brody, a border town, was near the site of a major tank battle from June 23-30. On July 1, German mobile killing squads occupied the town; by May 1943, with the assistance of local Ukrainian units, all the Jews of Brody had been murdered or deported to the Belzec and Majdanek killing centers. The handbill was recovered by Yahad-In Unum as they researched the atrocities committed by Nazi Germany against the Jewish population in Eastern Europe. The organization has located hundreds of mass execution and grave sites to document this Holocaust by bullets and to allow for the respectful remembrance of the fallen.
