WOLKOWYSK Bialystok district, Poland, today Belarus. Under Soviet rule in 1939-41, Jewish businesses were nationalized and artisans organized into cooperatives. The Germans captured Wolkowysk on 29 June 1941. In September, 200 Jews were executed in the forest. On 14 October 1942, 27 Jewish doctors were murdered for allegedly treating partisans. In November, the Jews were transferred to 15 big bunkers in a nearby camp where Jews from the entire province were being held and where starvation and disease claimed 600 lives a day. On 6 and 8 December 1942 all but 1,700 were deported to the Treblinka death camp. The latter were sent to Auschwitz on 26 January 1943.
