Highlights from the Holocaust Voyage to Poland - Summer 2014

 On 25 and 26 August 1941, the Jews of Tykocin - men, women and children - were taken to the Lopuchowo forest near the town, required to sing under whip threats. The unfortunate victims were machine-gunned to death and dumped into large pits dug in advance. That day were killed over 1,400 Jews of Tykocin. Poles covering the pits told that the earth moved from death convulsions and that the earth got a red blood hue.
