    Event History
    Trzebinia was bombed by the German air force on the first day of the war, causing a flood of refugees to flee the area. When the Jews returned, they were caught and executed by German soldiers who guarded the entrances to the town. Many were buried in a mass grave near near the bridge connecting Trzebinia and Chrzanow.
