Amongst the places of the region, the village Ostrowka (or Ostrowek) is noteworthy because amongst its Christians there resided the Jew Lipa Baumstein (called Ostrowker) who was famous for his generosity towards the Jewish communities of the region. In the beginning of the First World War, in 1914, when the Russians retreated from Ostrowiec to the Vistula River, Lipa bought of them,for lots of money, the various Torah books and other holy Scriptures which they captured in the city. Before his death, he wrote in his testament that he bequeathed 40,000 zloty for completion of the wall around the cemetery of Ostrowiec, and 20,000 zloty for a hostel for the Yeshiva boys of Ostrowiec.
