This website is cooperating with Jewish Gen in the translation of the Yizkor Memorial book of Ostrowiec. The book was written mostly in Hebrew and Yidddish language, and was originally published in 1970 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
From a historical perspective, and Holocaust perspective, your support in this translation project is needed, now more than ever. If you have connections with Ostrowiec or surrounding towns, you likely will find the translation of the Ostrowiec Yizkor Book particularly valuable in exploring your family history.
Any amount you can contribute will be appreciated. Donations to this project via JewishGen are tax-deductible for U.S. citizens.
The Jewish community of Ostrowiec was situated in the Kielce region of Poland and located before World War II in Opatow County. Ostrowiec is now the capital city of the Świętokrzyski County, part of Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship. Previously it belonged to Kielce Voivodeship.
