Testimonies related to Bodzentyn and Płock (Plotz) and Nowa Słupia
When the Płock (Plotz) Jews were assigned to Bodzentyn, the community had little to offer to sustain them. They were scattered around the town, some taken into homes, and others ended up sleeping on the synagogue floor or in empty stores. Many of the refugees succumbed to the typhus epidemic that struck Bodzentyn in the winter of 1941.
