Before World War II roughly a third of Lwów’s (Now Lviv) population was made up of Jews. As World War II began, the city’s population of 140,000 Jews quickly ballooned to 240,000 as Jews from Western Poland fled to the relative safety of Soviet-occupied Eastern Poland. But that changed in 1941 when the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union and occupied the city.
It’s estimated that just a few hundred Jews survived the massacres that followed.
