    Description

    The city of Starachowce is located in the Kamienna River valley, some 30 km from Kielce It is surrounded by vast forests, remains of the former Świętokrzyska Primeval Forest. In spite of the fact that Jews were officially not allowed to settle in Starachowice, they lived there already in the end of the 18th century and were subordinated to the kahal in Iłża. They erected a synagogue in 1905, and were granted a privilege of establishing an independent community in 1907. The majority of Starchowice Jews were deported by the Nazis to Treblinka death camp in 1942. The remaining members of the community were turned into slave-laborers working in the armament factory in Starchowice, but eventually they were all deported by the Germans to the extermination camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1944. The Jewish cemetery, or kirkut, established in 1891, is situated in ul. Podgórze. It occupies an area of an acre and contains approximately 200 tombstones.
