Sobibor. Extermination camp. From memories of Matel Rabinowitz:
"In a short time later, the Judenrat in Włodawa got an order to delivery of 150 Jews for allegedly innocent works at Sobibor, ie. 15 km from Włodawa. From my German boss (...) I got to know that in Sobibor built something that will become famous all over the world, he did not want to say more for fear of the Gestapo. Purpose of the construction of these strange buildings no one could understand. Part of the forest around the Sobibor was fenced and no civilians walked there.
After two months of construction apparently Germans wanted to test the performance of the gas in the common so-called bath. Naked Jews laborers brought to the bath in order to gassing them. A few, however, figured what was going on and they started running away.
Two of them survived, one of them [is] Szaja, son-in-law of Fajwel Cukierman, the second name I do not remember, they were both from Wlodawa. The half-naked in the dark night they sneaked into the city and went to, then living in Wlodawa, a famous rabbi from Radzyn and told him about Sobibor and for what it was built.
Rabbi from Radzyn ordered the three-day fast, asking God to take the care of helpless Jews. The news about the death camp in Sobibor (...) did in Wlodawa horrible and depressing feeling."
Wlodawa. Great Synagogue. The first Jews settled in Wlodawa in the sixteenth century. They mainly engaged in trade (among of 45 stores in the marketplace, 40 belonged to Jews) and crafts (4 butchers, 3 tailors, 2 goldsmiths, bakers, furriers, barbers). The first electric light bulb lit in 1913 in the Great Synagogue. And electricity, of course, flowed from a Jewish power plant.
The municipality never was very rich, and therefore often lacked the necessary funds to cover expenses. Municipal administration tried to get them by imposing new taxes and fees (eg. of salt, meat and other food products), which, in turn, met with strong opposition from the poor Jews.
Therefore created a special Book of Burial Society, where recorded recalcitrant taxpayers. When died person recorded in the book - to family denied burial until the debt is settled.
