The history of the Krosno Jewish community is very brief but dynamic. Within a period of about ninety years a modern Jewish community was established that consisted of providing cultural, political, social, religious, and sport needs to the Jewish population. The Jewish community provided primary education to all Jewish youngsters so that they were able to read the Hebrew prayers. The community also tended to the needs of the poor and helpless Jews in the city. The Jewish population was always ready to respond to a call for help or to take active measures to solve problems. Within a matter of about two years, the Germans and their helpers managed to deracinate the entire community and its institutions. Most of the Jews of Krosno were murdered in the Belzec concentration camp. Today there is no trace of Jewish life in Krosno except for the Jewish cemetery. This book serves as the memorial to the Jewish community of Krosno. It should be of interest to descendants and researchers of this community.
