About Moshe Krasnostavski
Moshe Krasnostavski was a member of the Jewish Council, in the Korzec ghetto.
On 24 September 1942 as pits were being dug outside the town of Kowzec, he set himself and his house aflame. Other Jews helped him set the ghetto ablaze. As killing continued, the resistance spread.
