Many Jews, especially young Zionists, left Tarnów during 1942 and joined a Jewish Resistance, fighting alongside other partisans in the forests or trying to help Jews escape to Hungary.
In September 1943 the Germans deported the remaining Jews from the Tarnów ghetto – 7,000 to Auschwitz and 3,000 to Plaszow.

About Tarnów One of the twinned towns of Nowy Sącz is Tarnów.
We’ve made the point elsewhere, but FYI from 1772 until 1918 Tarnów was not part of Poland.
More people were rounded up for forced labour and killings became more frequent.
In June 1942 the first 13,500 Jews from Tarnów were deported to the Belzec extermination camp.
In the following months, the Jewish population was swollen by large numbers of people seeking refuge, though many Tarnów Jews fed east.
A Judenrat (Jewish council) was established by the Germans to enforce a special tax and provide workers. A large fine was imposed on the Jewish community and the people were required to hand over all their valuables.
