PLYSKIV – Connecting Memory

Before the war, the Jewish community of Plyskiv consisted of about 790 people. Only a few of them survived the Holocaust. The main shooting site for the Jews from Plyskiv and the surrounding area was the former livestock cemetery outside the village.

This publication presents the life and death story of the Jewish community in the Ukrainian village of Plyskiv during the Holocaust. The village, located in the Pohrebyshche district of the Vinnytsia region of Ukraine, is one of the sites of the international project “Protecting Memory”. In 2019, the project helped transform the killing sites of the Jews into dignified memorials and places of information.

The research is based on sources from Ukrainian and foreign archives, academic literature and private collections.

Both the project and the historical research, which resulted in this publication, have been funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
